  • Small, great reception

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Small, cheap Nokia battery (BL5C) providing great battery life and easy to get a new battery. 
    Software provided, including serial number. 
    Great reception, fast. 
    Can be used as a USB GPS for a computer.
    Car charger included.  Nice google maps view of tracks, and .gpx export in software. Built in memory for logging tracks without a phone or computer.

    Cons:

    No display. Power button slides a little to easy, risk of accidental power off.
    The mini USB is not a standard type, but a 5 pin. Downloading tracks works fine with a 4 pin, but changing settings requires 5 pin.
    A little expensive. 
    Only chinese manual included.

    OtherThoughts:

    http://bt747.free.fr/ is a open source software for this GPS.
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2704 is a cheap and small 5 pin adapter that works.

    Bottomline:

    Small, good reception, bluetooth. I like it!
