I have one more day left in Bangkok and electronic equipment is so much cheaper than in South Africa, so this might be my cue to buy a GPS logger for when I go record sounds.
Can anyone recommend a good-ish, cheap one that works on mac ( with the provided software)? I want to interface with Max/MSP so I need to be able to access the information independently from the provided software.
max msp can receive data from serial object through RS-232 that means that a bluetooth GPS would be the cheapest option. I have a Holux GPSlim 236 which is quite cheap and easy to connect with max. The only thing is that this kind of gps don't have a screen or display to check on field where are you. Anyway, I think any of the Holux Wireless GPS Receiver / Data Logger are ok for the work,.... check out the web:
If you wanna spend more money and have a fancy thing I would go for Garmin one or Magellan and check out that they have USB connections and so on,.... BUt i'm not sure if the connectivity with max will work out.
