Gemini GPS receiver new
      #4454375 - 03/16/11 07:08 PM

what is needed.

Thank You
Joe

That's it.

Thank You. That is exactly what I need. The resistor looks like Orange, Black, Brown, Gold. Is there anything else and is that correct?

Thanks

Joe,
The resistor looks to be orange, black, black, gold and orange. I don't see brown on close examinations.
Glad to be of help!
