This is pure DIY goodness.
This is a short description on how I spent some hours this summer building a simple GPS device. For some time now I have been wondering about the possibility to build such a device from mostly scavenged and old parts, the most important being (of course) a GPS receiver module, and an LCD display. And indeed it was possible. ,)
Loads of great things here, he used a slavaged LCD from a cell phone as a display, a NEMA GPA module from eBay, and even burned his own boards using a UV party light.
