    Hi, as Kevin has already mentioned, the accurate version of the module he 
    owns has been discontinued but GPS versions are still available from the 
    supplier It is based upon a generic "On Screen 
    Display" chip - the MAX7456 - Google should point you towards some other 
    projects... e.g but 
    unless you have access to surface mount soldering equipment (or good eyes 
    and a steady hand), you'll need to either buy an "off the shelf" kit or a 
    MAX7456 that has already been mounted into a more easier to handle package. 
    It may also be worth googling some of the radio control model forums as 
    well, they seem to be doing a lot with similar technology... Hope this 
    Anyway, must get back to my observing.... the snow is very nice again
