# Laptop GPS

I was thinking about getting an in-car navigation system but didn’t want to spend the $900 or so that it would take to get a good one. Instead, I paid a visit to The GPS Store and bought a$80 GPS receiver for my laptop. Last night I hooked it up to the USB port, loaded Microsoft Streets and Trips onto the laptop, and went for a drive. After about 10 minutes it was able to find enough satellites to accurately fix our position, and we set it on tracking mode. As we drove through Redmond it drew a nice blue line on the map, tracking our position with a high degree of accuracy.
