  • 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.

  • 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.

User Review

Петров Алекc, Yandex

  • Excerpt: Купил я этот девайс себе к телефону, на случай, если вдруг телефонный GPS-навигатор не поймает спутники. Конечно у этого аппарата быстрый холодный старт, но постоянный обрыв соединения, после которого надо мобильник перезагружать, это не в какие ворота не лезет.
  • Pros: Мобильный, быстрый холодный старт.
  • Cons: Произвольный обрыв связи со свой стороны. На высокой скорости плохой пеленг.
