Maybe I didn't put enough effort into it but I've been a long time Linux/UNIX user and I cannot get the software they shipped with it to compile. I tried to compile it with the off the shelf software of Red Hat Enterprise, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu/Puke, and several others.

After plugging it into my Carputer and installing drivers, I found it instantly aquired 6 sattelites The device was purchased to run navigation software on a PC in my cars glovebox. It preformed flawlessly and could not be faulted. The Holux GR-213 was a fraction bigger than the external antenna that came with my other GPS device but there was no waiting for navigation data.
