you could try to find yourself a cheap Garmin (or other brand) hand held GPS and then try to locate an adaptor cable to connect it to the Prism, the thing about the Prism (as with all handsprings) is the Port is USB on the bottom of the Prism, not serial like the older Palm units, so you may have trouble finding a cable (or a cheap cable).. I don't happen to know of any, but if you search you may find something, then of course there is the software on the Prism, you need to find a Palm program that can accept GPS data via a serial connection and will work on the Prism, I would try to find the program you want to use first and see what hardware they recommend (especially for Handspring Visors).. Nice thing with a standalone Garmin GPS is you can also get a normal serial cable and hook that up to your laptop, or of course, you could use it standalone.. I owned a GEODE GPS springboard module and honestly, I agree with HindeR, it was a nice toy.. don't go the springboard route, get a separate GPS unit and try to find cables to connect to the Prism and/or your laptop.. (don't forget you will also more than likely also need to purchase additional map display software for both your laptop and the prism)..
