I went ahead and bought PCMCIA GPS Receiver BC-337 from
http://mightygps.com/ and guess what - it works. Sitting in my office
without a clear view of the sky, it reported my lat/long/speed/elevation to
the GPS Tracker (NMEA v1.1) package I installed on my MP 2100. No muss or
fuss. I bought the extra antenna but haven't needed it.


The "card" is actually a CompactFlash GPS receiver in a PCMCIA holder.


The folks at mightygps are not all that friendly - when I ordered from them
they acted like they were doing me a favor. But anyway, I have the hardware
and will report any new findings as they come.
