Find Your Way Back Home

Don’t have an iPhone 3G or a snazzy navigation device mounted on your dash? You can still obtain GPS on the go by turning your laptop into a navigation tool. If your system has Bluetooth, check out the CoPilot Live 11 for Laptops ($US249) from ALK Technologies. The CoPilot Live needs no hardware installation; instead, a small GPS receiver sits on your dashboard and relays GPS info via Bluetooth to your notebook. The package has maps for all of North America — 7 million miles of road and 6 million points of interest — ready to load onto your laptop. As you drive, your vehicle's GPS position is plotted continuously on the maps. Oh, you don't have Bluetooth? A USB option is available for the same price.
