Summary: This product is NOT natively supported by Win 7 or 8. It requires special drivers and install instructions from the manufacturers website. There is a NEWER version of this ( ) that is native. This does, however, work perfectly once it's installed. I had no issues.
Summary: Although this product is advertised as working with Windows 8, the program crashes within a few seconds with the BU-353-S4 USB GPS Receiver (which is enclosed with the Delorme Street Atlas 2014 Plus Software). The error report is "multiple irp complete requests".
Summary: Although the package says it is Street Atlas 2014 I received a 2013 version. Also nowhere in the description of the BU353 does it state that it is not compatable with Win 8. Found out after my purchase that Prolific, the mfg of the device driver for this BU353 has discontinued support for the driver...
Summary: i love this antenna and it is very easy to use weather it be in the car or on top the car to the laptop! i have used this while storm chasing and it stays put during strong winds and hard rain! i recommend this to anyone who has a need for a cheap but awesome GPS Antenna
Summary: Delorme says they updated a lot of info but there are many complaints that old mapping issues have not been corrected. No real functionality improvements. Probably not worth the money if you have an older product that works.
Summary: If you have Window 8, don't bother ordering this. The software for the GPS unit makes Windows crash on me, the Blue Screen of Death. I went to find another driver, and GlobalStat says beware of counterfeit software and that if you use their driver you have to turn off Windows Update.
