I decided for the sake of weight, I'd replace my Garmin Etrex Vista GPS on my plane (strapped piggback) with a dedicated chip version So I ordered one from Mouser.com. Mouser seems to have everything I ever need inabout 10 versions so its always a little daunting for me. This time I picked up a $28 GPS on a chip. If anyone cares its spec sheet is at http://www.tycoelectronics.com/gps/pdf/A1037-A.pdf.
Long story short -- read the specs first cause I forgot to get an antenna. Duh.
