    Laptop as a GPS?
    From: Steve E. Bryant
    Date: 2015 Oct 22, 15:39 -0500

    I would like to use my lap top as a GPS. I have a Dell Studio XPS.
    
    (If you are familiar, I would really like to replicate the long discontinued 
    Garmin "276c" GPS which was equipped with street and coastal marine charts.  
    It suited my purpose well.)
    
    Do any of you use your lap top as a gps with the ability to measure straight 
    line distances between waypoints and the direction between them?  I know 
    Google Earth has useful functions; I use them.  
    
    What I may be talking about is using my laptop as a chart plotter; some how 
    that sounds more expensive and like more hardware than I would care to 
    manage.   
    
    Please advise me as to where I might look to evaluate the viable options.
    
    Steve
