    hacking

    The title is mesleading. I looked up the definition of Hacking to see if I was out of line. This title is misleading. My idea of Hacking is getting something for nothing by getting into a computerized system. You will not get anything for nothing from your GPS by reading this book. I do think this book is useful. It is a good read. There is a lot there that you will never use or need for the price.

    One of a kind book!

    This is a great book for GPS users - it's not your standard 'how to use' but a deep and detailed look at ways to get the most from your GPS. It covers a whole range of 'hacks' from simple DIY cables to bigger projects such as building youw own antenna. Great book! One of a kind!
