gps sirf iii Customers Reviews

  • Very nice

    posted by testsubject

    1) Real Holux2) More compact than the Globalsat BU-3533) sealed better than the BU-353 (I found with by GlobalSat that the way the top and bottom pieces were screwed on was not ideal)4) nice 'new item' smell
    Use of plastics in packaging is minimal which is good to see.More compact and pleasing design than the sphere-like Globalsat BU-353 (in my opinion)Item works perfectly with supplied driver. Ideal partnered with navigation software like Garmin Mobile PC running on your laptop.This item should be listed under "Holux" on Dealextreme, along with the other Holux products on offer. As of 23 January 2011, it's still not. I am glad I found it considering it's not labelled as Holux.
    This is a reliable product that turns your computer into a GPS-aware device.Combined with one of the several GPS software packages out there that make use of location info, it does what it's supposed to do.It's a pleasure to use this product and I recommend it to all that need GPS on their computers and have a spare USB port for the task.
  • careful with this GPS!

    The price is very low for such a good quality GPSIt is also easy to use
    Use a converter IC to translate the RS232 voltages. If your I/O are 3V3 be sure to choose the right converter IC, most of them make the levels 5V
    As long as you understand its rs232 its a fine product
  • Great little GPS

    Great device
    If you grab the SiRF Demo application, you can adjust what is send and how often. For example, I found that if I only enabled the RMC and GGA it reduced the amount of processing required to get the info I wanted (I am using TinyGPS with an arduino, and those are the only 2 TinyGPS uses). Looking at the options available, you may be able to increase the reporting above 1Hz.In order to change the strings sent, Use the "Switch to SiRF protocol" and switch Back to NMEA.
