Have GPS, Will Travel

I’ve been meaning to get a GPS device for years, so a few weeks ago I researched bluetooth options (since I wanted a device compatible with both MacOS X and PalmOS) and came across the GlobalSat BT-359 Bluetooth GPS Receiver, which is also available on Expansys.

Expansys eventually shipped it to me this week and I received it on Friday. Over the weekend, I’ve been looking at GPS mapping software for both MacOSX and PalmOS, and I’ve found some interesting tools already:

So far, I haven’t used my GPS for much, but I’ll probably try geocaching at some point. Until then, I’m going to keep using Google Maps, which has finally gotten geotagging data for Ireland (eg Porterhouses in Dublin), so it’s actually useful to me no matter where I am now. Yah 🙂
