    outsider, It appears that this guide was written with Holux GPS in mind...

    Setting it to work with PSP-290 requires some extra tricks, already mentioned in PSP-290 release thread:
    -You need to run in under 3.xx kernel

    -You need to extract usbacc.prx and usbgps.prx and copy them to mapviewer's folder.

    FAQ threads in disscussion forum have all the details...

    In addition to what Deniska just wrote, which are very important points; let me just clarify that to run the PSP-290 GPS with the 3.xx kernel, you need DAX's Custom Firmware and you put the mapthis folders under the GAME3XX folder.

    If you're using the serial GPS then any homebrew capable PSP is ok and put the folders under GAME or with DAX's Custom Firmware GAME150.

    EDIT: Also, the PSP-290 GPS will work all over the world with ANY PSP. MapThis works on certain maps that are downloaded with the tool provided by In7ane. If you want to know if this will work where you live, basically just check MSN and Google Maps and see if they have map coverage for your location. If one of them has, you're in luck! It will work!

    putting the mapviewer folders in teh game folder seems to work too.

    @rockiecxh; any version will work regradelss if u use a gps reciever or not, i suggest using the latest version for obvious reasons.

    Can anyone recommend the best receiver in terms of looks, compactness and price?

    Both PSP-290 and Holux GPS have been mentioned in his thread.

    Thanks!

    Use the latest holux version - it seems to be more stable (less crashes)

    Both the psp-290 and teh holux gpslim 240 ae good looking an mall in size but from what ive read teh holux seems to have faster fixing time and better stability but psp 290 is cheaper (about 40$ cheaper) than teh gpslim 240. Personally id recomend the holux gpslim 240.
