  • Works great, fast start. High power consumption.

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

    Pros:

    Locks onto a GPS signal fast - like within 15 seconds. Compact design. Can store enough points to track this for days. Software works well and shows your route quickly.

    Cons:

    Requires a lot of juice for long-term tracking. I had this connected to a 4*AA Soshine USB battery pack (sold here) with very fresh batteries, and they were dead 5 hours later.
    Not waterproof.
    Does require somewhat clear access to the sky to work, but I've had it in a door pad and behind a car fascia and it still worked most of the time.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    Great for logging a route or keeping an eye on something for a day or two. It requires something with a higher mAh than 4*AA batteries for anything over 4-5 hours. If you're putting this in a car, do yourself a favor and get a 12 volt USB adapter to tie it in to the car's wiring or cigarette lighter.
