I have not tried such a set up with a GPS unit but it works with a
laptop. I wrote an complete ArcView 3.x course while on a trip that way.
Of course I was not driving.

Hi All - 

        I know a lot of you do a good amount of survey so I want to
double check some advice I just got.  Our agency is gearing up to do
archaeological survey in some very remote places with lots of trees. We
will use Trimble XH  2005 to get the job done. I was just told by a
reasonably knowledgeable  salesman that we can use a regular power
inverter attached to the standard cradle set up to charge the XH on long
rides instead of using the clip and car charger.  Do any of you have
experience with that?  It would save us buying a set up that we may not
need, on the other hand one XH cost more than my first car....
