In this third installment of the "Some Assembly Required" column, I connect to the GPS that came with Microsoft Streets and Trips 2005. I upgraded EdJez's .NET 1.1 application to .NET 2.0 and explores the process and 2.0 benefits and learned more than I wanted about the NMEA GPS data specification. I cover System.IO.Ports, generics collection classes, and revel in the WinForms 2.0 designer. Enjoy!
