    Default gps mapping with kismet

    does kismet come pre setup on bt2 for gps mapping or do you have to install extra components. I prefer to use google earth, but whatever one that is easier to set up will be fine, since im still trying to learn BT and Linux.

    Try to find compability with
    gpsd (responsible in linux for gps connection)
    gpsdrive
    The gps receiver should have
    serial, usb or bluetooth connection with laptop
    Most of Garmin receivers work with linux
    and many more that can send data to PC in NMEA standard (Pionieer ?)

    Garmin uses NMEA output over serial port, and is supported by gpsdrive. The USB output is used for downloading & uploading data, and I believe that while there are some binary control commands that can be used, no NMEA comes out of this port.

    There is a serial-to-usb cable as well , but probably not worth trying.
    Some guys have managed to make 60C work with linux

    and it looks that it was connected by USB.
    Still don't know if it would work easily with BT/Kismet.
    I use simple no-screen receiver with SiRF Star III chip and bluetooth connection to PC.

    what would really help is someone who can list the nicest one they/ or someone they know used, I like to get an all in one.

    Id prefer garmin like a handheld, my store has a entrex legend for 99.00 but do they work with usb and get good reception?
