    Pros:
    1. Built pretty solid. 2. Dial clicks with reassurance. 3. AA battery operation (instead of a more expensive and unfavourable 9V disposables - which some of Fluke's more expensive meters still use! (Hello?! It's 2011.). 4. Buttons feel good. 5. Meter doesn'...
    Cons:

    Pros:
    1) Real Holux 2) More compact than the Globalsat BU-353 3) sealed better than the BU-353 (I found with by GlobalSat that the way the top and bottom pieces were screwed on was not ideal) 4) nice 'new item' smell

    Pros:

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

    Pros:
    * ideal for smartphones with integrated GPS just as much as smartphones without integrated GPS. Advantages over internal GPS chips in many smartphones are: 1) far better performance 2) quick & reliable locks to satellites (often indoors too) and no need ...
