Never Get Lost Again
When was the last time you wasted valuable travel time because you took a wrong turn in an unfamiliar location? Now there's an affordable and reliable solution -- the Earthmate GPS LT-20 receiver. The Earthmate GPS LT-20 is a high-performance, easy-to-use link to the satellite navigation technology of the Global Positioning System (GPS). Accessing these satellites is available for no additional charge. Earthmate, connected to a USB laptop PC, shows your real-time position on detailed Street Atlas USA maps anywhere in the U.S., so you will always know where you are and where you need to go. Do even more with your laptop PC by adding the Earthmate GPS LT-20 -- Global Positioning System technology now available for everyone.

 

Getting Started is Easy
Plug the Earthmate GPS LT-20 into the USB port of your laptop PC. The low-power chipset draws power from your laptop, meaning no GPS batteries are needed. Install the Street Atlas software, choosing to load the entire second data disc onto your hard drive if you want. The software also includes over 4 million places of interest. Place the GPS as close to your front windshield as possible, ideally using the enclosed suction cup on the attached cable to hold the GPS against the glass. Click on the software GPS tab and you’ll see your position updated in real time on the maps as you drive. There are many custom GPS options included within the GPS tab.


Real-time GPS tracking using the Earthmate GPS LT-20 and Street Atlas USA software with high-contrast map settings option turned on and large turn arrows showing the next turn and the turn after when tracking against a pre-planned route.

Earthmate GPS includes a built-in LED that transitions through the various satellite acquisition modes: red for searching, yellow for two satellites in view, and green for at least three satellites in view. Earthmate GPS is a 12-channel NMEA-compliant receiver.

REVIEWS

Turn Your Laptop PC into a Powerful GPS Navigator At $100, no vacation planner with a laptop should be without this gem.”
- Chicago Tribune

 

“I have been using variations of DeLorme mapping software and its GPS device for about a decade all over the continent and it has more than repaid its cost in terms of frustration and time saved and, now that I think of it, gasoline wasted. Not only did the DeLorme system always get me to the right place, it often directed me to alternate routes when the primary path (usually an interstate) was jammed. This is also a gas saver since you get zero miles to the gallon when you’re stuck motionless in traffic.”

DeLorme Street Atlas USA with Earthmate GPS Preferred by the Washington Post over Microsoft Streets and Trips with GPS
" DeLorme put some thought into making Street Atlas USA easy to use in motion. You can set the program to display one trip segment at a time, using large, high-contrast type and graphics. It can also call out each turn in a synthesized voice and responds to basic spoken commands, such as "next turn" or "be quiet." Which to choose? Once you're rolling, Street Atlas USA works better. Microsoft's directions come in the form of too-small text, coupled with detailed maps that will be hard for a co-pilot to read -- assuming he or she doesn't get carsick from the effort."
– Washington Post (Sept. 5, 2004)
