Todo lo necesario para GPS en una sola página (En INGLÉS)

* Todo para GPS en una sola página: programas, versiones anteriores, reviews de equipos, etc.
* Contiene información muy útil, tanto para el novato -primera vez que se interesa por un GPS- hasta para los usuarios mas avanzados que buscan rewiews de equipos, programas de Garmin que ya no están disponibles en la página oficial, etc. etc.

Es mi primer post, no la ví publicada en ningún post anterior y me pareció muy completa, tanto que la tengo en mis favoritos y quise compartirla con Uds.

Espero les sea útil.

A continuación copio el índice de la página y sus contenidos:

Mi amigo, el post esta excelente, sin embargo comprendo a aquellos que necesitan ver imágenes para poder entender, supongo que es el tipo de gente que no lee un libro porque no tiene dibujos así que prefieren leer comics.

Yo también soy aficionado a los GPS así que estos links me mantendrán ocupado un tiempo.

Consulta para todos los usuarios de GPS...
Necesito pasar las coordenadas que tengo en el MapSource (obtenidas por el GPS) a AutoCAD. El tema es que solo me da en 2D y las necesito en 3D. Probe algunos programas pero el que dice que lo hace o es muy complejo o hay pagar...

Alguno puede darme una mano con eso??


Gracias por el aporte. Una verguenza la cantidad de visitas y los pocos puntos.
