    I have downloaded the software teh Newton MP 130 needs to view GPS maps. All I need is a GPS reciever. I saw one on eBay that has PC Serial and Mac Serial. I guess that would work. Do the GPS recievers require drivers? Or does the software include it? (I will be using GPS Map Lite)

    Anyone know any Newton Compatible GPS Serial devices ?? (I want the PC slot to be open for memory cards)

    Thanks in advance

    Newtons can be relay finicky about the peripherals that are used with them. (I sold my old 120 and still own an eMate300). I would search the net for Newton sites, like THISOLDNEWT, and see what users can tell you. There were a number of compatable GPS units made that were compatable with Newtons. I would just check to see if that particular unit was able to interface before I purchaced it.
