    PC GPS

    I do map work on OpenStreetMap. One tool I use to map is PC Navigator. It allows you to record a route that you can later upload to OSM or use as the basework to manually edit the map. However, it requires that I purchase a GPS adapter that can connect to a PC. I bought a GlobalSat BU-353-S4...
