Many of the newer GPS' have altitude as a screen display.  OTOH mine has
read as low as -19 near the ocean.  It's close, but it's calculated off

Clock and outside temp:  There are numerous $5-$20 solutions.  Find one for
a home.  Yes, they take batteries, but you will change then once a year.  If
you want hardwired, stepping 12v down to 3v won't be too hard.
