The '57 Fuldamobile is only $2000.00, then there is the shipping costs...

Yup. You have to dig out the old General Relativity textbook to handle GPS sattelite clocks and correctly account for the orbit of Mercury. What? You don't have an old General Relativity textbook? Well, just mention it in passing and fake it. Not every SF writer has a Ph.D. in Physics (or Applied Physics) -- some of us are just lucky. (grin)
