    Exceeded expectation

    posted by ngrover on 05/30/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works as advertised... which is to say, better than I thought. I'm using this with an Asus Transformer Prime TF-201 tablet which has a useless built in GPS receiver. I used the Holux with the tablet along with the "Bluetooth GPS" app available in ...
    Cons:
    I had to go online to find the paring code "0000"

    Very nice for the price

    posted by substitute on 05/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very small, about the size of a match box. Light weight too. Easy to use after quickly reading the manual. The EzTour software works really well and seems to even get updates every now and then. Removable battery is a very good feature also.
    Cons:
    Flimsy on/off switch. The plastic used in the casing is pretty weak also so be careful with it.

    Works well for orienteering

    posted by kjetilk on 04/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I've used it for analysis of my course in orienteering, a sport where one runs in the forest with a detailed map. It works well for this purpose. Even in dense forest, reception is adequate, and it can easily show where I slowed down or made a mistake. It s...
    Cons:
    It should be a way to not start a new track if you connect it and turn it on to read out.

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

    Pros:
    + Most of the time acquires a fix in less than a minute. If you use the device often and don't move too far away, gets a fix even quicker. + Accurate (when it works) + Sensitive + Despite the power switch location, I've never accidentally turned the device ...
    Cons:
    - If you haven't used the device for a while, try to acquire a fix in completely different place and haven't uploaded AGPS data...

    Good Bluetooth GPS receiver

    posted by wishod on 11/30/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very useful thing to log movements of a person/vehicle/object. Can be used as a external gps antenna with a notebook, tablet pc, phone. Quickly finds and lock on GPS satellites, reception is quite strong, compared to internal antennas in other devices.
    Cons:
    Bundled software is buggy and useless, you have to polish this thing a bit to make it work flawlessly!
