Wireless GPS for your Bluetooth equipped Windows 8.1 tablet

James R. Muri, Amazon
21 May 2015
  • Summary: Battery life is good, but longer would have been better for some applications. The receiver is sensitive enough that this unit works fine while inside my sailboat, so no need to take it outside at all.

  • Summary: I'm a 757/767 pilot for one of the US majors, using this GPS receiver with a MS Surface 2 tablet running Jeppesen Flight Deck Pro. The unit acquires a fix rapidly and displays the aircraft position on the Jepp enroute view as well as on the airport diagram.

Lacks basic features.

D. Williams, Amazon
17 December 2014
  • Summary: I will say it as accurate and quick as one would come to expect. However it lacks a lot of key features that have me debating a return. 1. No mini usb port/charging. It uses an old round DC Jack and you have to purchase a wall charger separately.

  • Summary: Maybe it is just may particular device/software I pair this guy with, but it has a fatal flaw. It will often give me a postion that is about 200 feet off. When I notice that and disconnect/reconnect I get the proper position, but it is not always possible to know when it is off.
