If you choose to use a gps device for geolocation of entries, it needs to be connect
via serial to the computer. For computers without serial ports, you can use USB to 
serial converters such as th StarTech ICUSB232v2. Plug it into the computer's USB
Port and run "mode" in the command prompt. The COM port with the highest number is
likely to be you USB to serial converter. The baud rate will be dependent on the 
GPS device, look for it in it's documentation.
