Does one of his videos feature a GPS?

The local Target has a new Garmin GPS display in the sporting goods section. They had the Garmin Mapsource Metroguide (downloadable maps for their line of GPSRs) so I bought one. Downloaded and tried out the map covering this area yesterday and well, it pretty much works, showing nearly all the streets here.

Anyway, 8MB of map data does take quite a while to transfer on a serial cable so I was wondering if there was a way to avoid running down the batteries during the download. And yes, there is a data/power cable combo. So I made the purchase at Amazon and on checkout, Amazon recommended the following additional items:
  1. Tripp Lite U209-000-R USB Serial Adapter
  2. Porn Star - The Legend of Ron Jeremy (Uncut & Unrated Edition)
  3. Cables To Go USB To Db9 Serial Adapter USBa/db9m Rs-232
  4. Belkin F3U134-10 USB A/A Extension Cable; 10ft
  5. Wilderness Navigation
Whoa! Where did it get #2 from?? One of these things is not like the others. :)
