    Very handy and reliable GPS

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a very handy tool to have as a main GPS sensor or as a backup one. The build quality is awesome and the magnet to attach it on the top of the car is very strong. The device requires only the installation of usb to serial drivers to function properly.
    Cons:
    It comes with crappy useless software, but you can download good navigation software for free on the web.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Long wanted to buy! It was a pity money. We have such an antenna are $ 100 and then 30! The quality of the set includes the super sucker for neat cable management. On the sensor, a magnet, so it can easily fix it in the car, boat, tractor or snowmobile. Mag...
    Cons:
    No cons, some pluses, take not regret.

    Pros:
