My cellphone on the other hand, which cost a lot less than a good HP-41 these days, can display latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and one hundred more values including a moving map of our entire continent all at once. And provide a voice output of a nice lady talking Dutch (she has the most pleasant voice so I selected her...) who guides me home at night. Yes. At night, because that display is readable in the dark.

I think that's an unfair comparison because it's a completely different ballgame; so while I acknowledge the quantum leaps in technology that doesn't prevent us from also enjoying the new tricks on old gadgets - remember, this is a MUSEUM forum!

So I contend the HP41 plug-in GPS module would be GREAT also today ;-)
