Easy to use, cheap but not precise. – EM-411 GPS Engine Board Module with SiRF Star III Chipset Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheap Easy to get started Small Works perfect with my arduino uno via serial (4800baud).
Cons:
Slow start up Says i'm 15 km away from my actual position and it says it has perfect GPS reading (Only me?). Boring packaging, only a bag. Don't listen to my nmea commands.
Other:
First time ordering from DX, im 100% satisfied. But the GPS have bad precision, maybe it's only my unit.
Bottomline:
Worth the money. But i am disappointed on the precision of the unit. And it would be nice to have a nicer packaging. Perfect for measuring speed.
