We offer two GPS Receiver kits, one that mounts magnetically, and another that is permanently installed. Both come with a harness designed to provide them with power and connect them to the serial input of your player.eceivers you’re installing.
If you plan to use GPS Builder’s ability to capture geographic data from the GPS receiver during programming (as opposed to just clicking point on the map), you should also order a GPS/USB cable.
