laptop GPS navigation

So I wanna use a laptop for GPS navigation in my motorhome. Frankly it will be ‘supplemental GPS navigation’. The primary navigation tasks will be handled by a Garmin GPS.

The laptop will be used for route planning. I plan to use Microsoft Streets and Trips 2011 on this laptop. When you are driving a huge motorhome you need to worry about bridge clearances, propane restrictions etc etc.

Also the big screen on the laptop would sure be useful. yesterday I bought a USB GPS receiver for it. It is a GlobalSate BU-353 USB GPS Receiver. I heard good things about it. Once it arrives, I will post my review here.

more later…
