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

Pros:
This unit has a very fast signal acquisition time. The power consumption is low, making it ideal for battery powered projects. The serial communication protocol is widely available on the web, which makes it easy to use.
Cons:
Loses signal at times when inside a vehicle due to the directional antenna that needs to be facing the sky for best signal
Other:
This module is great for embedded projects - it worked superbly with my Arduino
Bottomline:
A better GPS module can't be found for this price
