Compass, Tempature and Clock Gages

Hello, just recently got a MDT, Stalick International. Decided my 1 ton Dodge was too small for the trailer, so decided to go bigger. Getting a bigger 5th wheel and wanted more truck. The Dodge has spoiled me rotten, with all of the creature comforts. So am looking for a nice compass, tempature and clock set of gages or gage for the new truck. Anybody got any ideas?

My wife is the navigator when we travel, we use Microsoft's Streets & Trips w/GPS for mapping software. I am also interested in any ideas for a small counter top table large enough to sit a laptop computer on, while we travel. Then also when she wants she can move it out of the way. Again, anybody got any ideas?

Compass/Tem.

We have a Garmin color Street Piolt GPS on the dash with compass/clock/ speed.
The last owner add a Tem. digtial from Radio Shack (in/out side temp.)
Have not looked for this in the store, could be several years old.
Works good as far as I can tell.

Compass, Tempature, and Clock

Hello Larry and thnaks for the reply. The Garmin is a good idea, does it work well inside the truck?
We are bonding with the truck and am looking for things to help customize it and really make it ours, lots of fun!!

Garmin GPS

My Garmin Color Street Pilot is 7 or 8 years old had it in our 26ft. boat on big lakes in Nv./Ut./Wi. Still works well.
Has a data base for major road in US but the city and towns streets are old.
We have a 64mb card with a card reader for usb computer connect.
We buy a new cd map program every other year to down load to card in the Garmin for the new map streets and raods.
I do not think the new Garmins have this. But have not look at them for
years.
Let me know what you do to your truck.
