Where can I get a USB GPS receiver in NZ?

At the moment I plug in a handheld GPS but that is fairly clumsy with all the cabling.

 

Just looking to make OpenCPN a back up plotter.

Yes the Garmin works a dream. You might just decide to make OpenCPN your primary plotter!

Thanks and yep we bought the Globalstar.

It turned up this morning and works a treat.

Even picks up inside the house.

The only little trick was linking OpenCPN to the correct port.
