gps and director mx

gps and macs

here’s one for the mac peeps. i’ve received a few emails asking about how to get a gps to work on a mac and then writing a custom interface to display the data. macromedia flash “could” work but director is better at handling and manipulating bitmaps, so that being said–i dug up this example using a garmin eTrex vista and keyspan serial to usb adaptor.
