Unfortunately my other projects are dragging on
and I haven't been able to focus on mowbot.

But I have noted the following.

Delorme makes Tripmate a $150 GPS receiver
(12 channel parallel?) with a "standard" PC
serial connection.

It might be possible to use two of these
to do differential GPS for positioning.

I've heard claims of DGPS accuracy to one

I'm far from an expert on the subject and
was looking for other comments....
