Well, I have a 12 channel parallel receiver that's about 3 times the
size of my Jornada. I'm gonna bolt it into the roll-cage of my truck
and plug my jornada into one of it's serial ports (it has 2, one that
can be used for differential input). Then I want to be able to map
my current position onto a topo map that I've got for the area that
I'm planning to go to offroad.
