Got this used a couple years ago while I was doing some stuff with my buddy who lives in Seattle. I needed something to capture my tracks and send to him. I used it like 6 times over a two week period. It has been in a box since. I bought it used and it has just a leeeeeeetle wear on the housing, but works perfectly. I have no books or software. I can't remember what I used to capture tracks but it was freeware I downloaded off the intertubes. I think this is pretty standard gear that works with all the software packages out there. I'm just not the guy to ask about these things as you can tell. [DEL]$75[/DEL] [DEL]$60[/DEL] [DEL]$50[/DEL] $35 shipped conus (paypal). Thanks!
