I am new the 'advanced' (beyond just using a handheld device!) GPS game so if some of the queries below are bit simple apologies in advance. I am very computer literate so am able to play around with software to get something working if I need to.
I am looking to setup a small Netbook based laptop GPS to take along with me on outback motorbike tours (I won't be using this in real time, I will have a conventional GPS for that). I was thinking about a small Win7 based netbook, USB GPS receiver and OziExplorer software as well as some purchased maps. I am guessing this is all pretty straightforward(?). However being new to this I am open to all recommendations in this regard!
Additionally, I would like to download satellite imagery to refer to. I was looking at downloading the NASA Landsat imagery https://zulu.ssc.nasa.gov/mrsid/mrsid.pl. The big question is can I use this data in OziExplorer and how do I convert it to a format OziExplorer uses. All I really want is a dot on an image showing where I am and what is in the area. Again any and all recommendations for this gratefully received.
