Well, yah see... I bought this really nice... really expensive laptop that has been great. I got all excited right before a trip, because i figured how to use the GPS attached to the computer (desktop at home) so that you have the routing and everything on the computer and the GPS is merely the reciever. I went to hook it up to my shiny new laptop and WTF? no serial port! damn it!
Getting the adapter....
