  • Excellent GPS receiver

    posted by mzaikin

    I hooked this device to my Win XP netbook with OziExplorer and can track while driving.Teh steps are as follows:1) Run GPS Info from CD to scan COM port number2) Run OziExplorer and in configuration select the COM port3) Select NMEA GPS data format4) Open map5) Turn on MovinMap mode6) Enjoy !
    Also, it starts very quickly. Cold start is very fast (couple of seconds)
    Excellent GPS receiver, will definetely recommend anyone who wants to use laptop with GPS software.
  • Seems to work fine, but with at least one bug.

    Low price, well made, sensitive receiver, works under tree canopy. Very accurate positions since unit is WAAS enabled (within 20’ under tree canopy and at base of 50’ high hills on two sides). Most useful for finding Lat/Lon and elevation of current position. LiPo battery seems to hold charge well. Works as expected except as noted.
    Would be nice if it was able to output NMEA sentences at mini USB port, but it doesn't seem to do so. Would rather have a slightly larger unit that used common AAA batteries since charging on long hikes would be a problem.
    Does everything I hoped it would.
  • Works very well under Windows and Linux

    + Works under Windows 7 x64. I had to download the driver from the Prolific site)
    + Works under Linux. I tested on Debian Squeeze 32 bit. No need to download drivers, the ones that come with the kernel work.
    + Seems very acurate.
    + Update ever 1 second.
    + Has a LED that blinks while tracking and stays on when locked.
    + Comes with a short usb cord.
    + Good construction
    + Serial connection works with a big number of applications
    I bought the GPS to be used while sailing. I tried it with the following programs, and works very well:
    + Seaclear: under Win 7 and Debian using Wine
    + OpenCPN: under Win 7 and Debian
    The GPS fits my needs and it's much cheaper that buying a stand-alone GPS unit.
    I have not tried it on the road. So I can't tell how does it work while driving.
    Very good GPS to be used with a laptop. I recommend considering this product before buying an stand alone GPS.
  • Nice PC GPS Unit

    This is fully sealed and has a strong magnetic base. Fast at lock on statelites even from cold. Low power consumption as it has a battery built into the device.The size is about as big as a matchbox.One of the main reasons that I purchased this over a Globalsat is the length od the cord is longer.
    Nice compact wee unit, my friends all want one now!!!
    Useful tool for making you netbook into a GPS
