Hi, as this is my first post bare with me until I learn the ropes.

I bought an Explorist 100 a month ago and while searching the net I found the circuits to connect it to a PC and make a mini GPS repeater for it.

After about a week I have managed to hook it up to Oziexplorer using the same interface for a Simoco PRM80 radio. I have been able to upload and download waypoints, tracks etc. I would like to chat to anybody who has done this too, to see what else is possible.

The mini GPS repeater uses a high gain magnetic mount GPS antenna, a small loop antenna and a few components. It works well, I can get 5 satellites full strength inside my office with the high antenna outside.

Anyway just thought I would hello and hope to learn more about GPS here.

Thanks.

Geoff
