    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.
