Summary: This device was detected by all my laptops and two PocketPC without any problems and has started to work shortly after insertion. Fast satellites search, stable signal reception, strong enough (didn't try to seat on it, but it was squeezed by many thing on the bottom of my backpack without any damages). Has Sirf-II chip which gives good quality of positioning.
Summary: This being my first experience with a GPS logger, I'd have to say that this little piece of hardware is a pretty neat and easy to use device. A little bit on the setup though, if one can call it that: Running the enclosed drivers on a Windows 7 PC seemed to have issues for me, specifically, the driver didn't seem to want to work with the logger - it wouldn't recognize it at all.
Summary: This is the second my GPS device from GlobalSat. Convenient GPS device that I bought for car navigation. Use with my Tablet PC, i connect either in PCMCIA slot. For bad satellite signal conditions have an external antenna, but I did not use it because it perfectly positioned for an integrated antenna. Only good impression.
Summary: Installation of this device is a snap. The device works very well and just as advertised with quick start-up and satellite acquisition time. Just started playing with it but it looks to be a great little device!
Summary: I've had this products for about two years. I use it for geo-tagging the pictures I take. From the aspect of hardware this is absolutely amazing. The two AA batteries will keep it on for more than a full day. Turn it on, put it in your pocket and forget about it. The GPS record is so precise you can literally see yourself changing lane on highway. However the softwares come with this product are next to useless.
Summary: This is a great little GPS receiver that uses the SiRFStarIII chipset. It works well in the Trimble Recon rugged PDA, also works well in my DELL laptop using the included PCMCIA adapter. The only thing I don't like about it is that I can't configure it using SiRFDemo and similar programs. It does come with GPS Information that allows you to turn on WAAS/EGNOS, but that's about all.
Software is so flaky it renders the device unusable

Summary: This is an extremely frustrating little device. The hardware itself is pretty good. The GPS is extremely sensitive, it can store a lot of log data, and it is very gentle on the batteries. The problem is getting the data off the device. The instructions are pretty straightforward. Install the drivers. The device will show up as a serial device. Launch the software, run the setup, and away you go.
Summary: The device seems to work, however, it will not communicate with my Apple machine. I was successful in getting it to work on my past laptop after 3-4 hours of experimentation. This last device was loaned to me and I got it working. So I bought one for myself, and have struggled with it for three days now. The manufacturer is no help at all. They provided me with a new driver--which was the same as the one I was using.
Summary: I have very specialized needs in a gps logger due to my job functions, but I thought others might like to know some of the functionality that is NOT mentioned in any of the product documentation: Most GPS data loggers on the market give you the necessary position and velocity data. I'm only mentioning features that I consider very unique to this device: 1) Non-bluetooth - I can't take transmitting devices into my lab areas for security reasons.
