Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    GPSNavX can go head to head with Navimaq. GPSNavX is only $59 and available as an immediate download. We also offer phone tech support and very prompt email service.
    And for $99 you can get MacENC which supports both BSB rasters (RNCs) and S-57/S-63 vector (ENCs).
    One last point, our software is natively compatible with both the newer Intel based Macs and the older PowerPC ones – something Navimaq can’t claim as of yet!!

    I love your test rack. Make sure you drive down a bumpy dirt road to shock test the equipment.
    As a young man I had I had a similar rig with anemometers. We also added sprinkler on the hood to test for the effects of rain. The sheriff pulled us over not that we were violating the law, but in his words we were more distracting than a topless dancer on the back of a pick up truck. We relocated our testing to the airport.
    Anyway Ben you should be proud of your creativity, and low budget approach.
