The Key to Great GPSing

If your Windows Mobile device is not equipped with built-in GPS, you will need to buy a satellite receiver so that your Pocket Pal can engage in GPS navigation. Some software packages come with a receiver, some do not. Over time, I have witnessed the diminution of receivers, but I just got a new one that is so small it fits on my key ring—amazing.

Even more amazing, you can leave it in your pocket, your backpack, or briefcase, and it will still pick up a signal and relay it to your tracking device.

An excellent navigation program that I highly recommend is by OCN. What I appreciate about this application is that it is completely plug and play. You just slide it into the expansion slot of your WM device; it automatically installs, and you are good to go immediately because it comes with pr...
