Great device. So far

  • Summary: Great device. So far, no issues. Quick lock on satelites. It would be preferrable if device could be charged from USB instead of dedicated 12v automotive accessory connector.

Wireless GPS for your Bluetooth equipped Windows 8.1 tablet

  • 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: This unit arrived via Parcel Post on a Sunday afternoon.... and after charging it in my car, I paired it with my old Lenovo ThinkPad tablet and it was off to the races. The ThinkPad is running CyanogenMod Android 4.1.1 so there was no need for any helper app like GPS Info..

but slightly annoying. Unfortunately this unit only ships with a car ...

WestCoaster, Amazon
19 March 2015
  • 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 "D", 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.
