Until yesterday I had never heard of a Dongle, then I read Winstons' thread, which was very interesting and informative. Went to take a look at it again today - can't find it!! Am I going mad, or did I see a dongle thread??!!


Is this the the type of info you are looking for.

So what's a GPS Dongle? It's a stand-a-lone GPS device that stores all it's movements on an internal memory chip. This data can then be download from the GPS Dongle to your laptop or PC using its USB connector at a later date. What's more, this device is small enough to put on your key ring when not in use!

Key points for the GPS Dongle are:

1. Possibility the world’s most cost effective GPS logger.

2. The tiny GPS Dongle can be hidden within a vehicle where it will record the vehicles movement then can be removed and then placed in your computers USB port where a map will be displayed on your PC screen. The map will show the vehicles movement history displayed within Google maps. Google maps are free!

3. Note this unit will need to be connected to the vehicles power supply to operate (a standard cigar adaptor is supplied).

4. This unit can also be used as a GPS receiver for your laptop and interface with navigation software loaded onto your laptop

I use one to sail with I put all my Waypoints into it .

top tip.......Dont even think of buying one in UK and using it in Turkey! Costs are astronomic and just doesnt make sense with the abundance of wireless points available

No you've not lost the plot - yet!! It's a thread entitled Mobile Interner Dongles in Turkey - sorry I don't have the know-how to post a link!!! I did a search on Dongles and it came up right behind your post!

Lovely pic of SonnyJim!
