Very easy to use as it is NMEA0183 compatible and offers a USB interface instead of a serial port.
Has more than enough channels and always gives me fast fixes.
Power usage is low on this modern GPS chip.
The Serial to USB convertor chip is very standard in the industry and thus widely supported.
Using Linux and GPSd you won't have any problems at all.... Read more

Indoor aplication is allmost impossible. The dongle ... Read more

Good built quality.
Works well after managing to get software right. No map software comes with it.
Most programs can't recognize it, even google earth will work ounly using earth-bridge with it.

For use as city navigator you will need a software like Garmin Mobile PC or iGo for PC. You can use it with Google Earth, but you will need a 3G modem. Be careful to use your ... Read more
