Do you mean a GPS data logger which actually records data
to internal memory that can be read out into a computer
later, or do you mean a GPS receiver that plugs into a
laptop/handheld, and any recording is done on the computer?
I would suggest the former. Please take a look at many GPS
devices listed at

We were interested in USB data loggers, so from the above
list we have narrowed it down to four devices that we are
investigating: (a) Holux M-241, (b) Amod AGL3080,
(c) GlobalSat DG-100, and (d) RoyalTek RGM-300.
