Pros:
Good little GPS unit. Looks quite sturdy and is in a nice small package Like it was said before, fast fix and is quite accurate. Easy to setup, just plug it in and install the driver on the disk that was provided. Worked first go with my Asus EEEPC and Google Earth. Also seems to work well with while driving around and using Stumbler. Supports NMEA standard so should be supported with basically any GPS software. Has quite a long cable attached to it so you can put it away from the other device if you cannot get a satellite fix. Also comes with some software for looking at what satellite the device can see and lock onto and also view raw logs of what the device is sending to the computer which I thought was quite interesting.
Cons:
None that I can really think of, does what it specifies.
Other:
Bottomline:
Good GPS unit that’s relatively cheap, works good with google earth and stumbler if need to map out where wireless networks are.
