Actually it sounds harder than it is. I connected a Garmin ForeTrex 101 to
my 2100 with a hand made serial cable. I then used GPS Map Lite for the
display. I made my maps out of MS Map Point and Google mapping. I even used
satellite pics for a bit of Geocaching. Making the maps (or satellite
photos) is explained in my blog here:

if that is too long, here: http://tinyurl.com/ydhum6e or here:

questions, Santa is always ready to help.

Getting GPS working on a Newton is one of wishlist projects:  Getting the
hardware bits and pieces is not too difficult.  The problem is sorting out
maps.  It gets quite tricky and mathematical... :(  Learning NewtonScript
and NS
BASIC seem like smaller mountains to clime.
