This may be a little OT, and if so I apologize but I thought maybe someone here can help me. I have a VECTOR 530 mobile data terminal. Basically a computer with gps for a taxi cab. It uses a gps receiver same as with like a TOMTOM or a GARMIN that has a (I think) a MCX connector.
The gps receiver that came with it didn't seem to be too good in that the receiver would lose the signal quite often and sometimes take a long time to re-acquire the signal.
I have the GlobalSat BT-359 SIRF III GPS receiver that I use with my laptop for M$ streets & trips and google earth. Something I've noticed is that with the BT-359, it NEVER loses the signal except for when I'm in a parking structure. I WANT THAT FOR MY VECTOR 53O!!
Is there a gps receiver (not necessary the BC-337 or BT-359) that has the SIRF III and work with my VECTOR 530 (TOMTOM / GARMIN compatible receiver)? My VECTOR doesn't have usb, ps/2, or bluetooth inputs but have a MCX input port for the gps receiver. Is there a gps receiver w/ SIRF III that I can use for my VECTOR? I can't use usb, ps/2, or bluetooth but if the receiver has any sort of standard connector, I can cut off the connector and reattach it with a MCX connector (male and female MCX connector already ordered on ebay) to make it fit. Is there such a gps receiver? or any suggestion?
