Excellent value for the money, small and highly sensitive GPS receiver. Uses the latest chipset which works on all satellites. The magnetic base is welcome, but make sure it is attached firmly to metal when driving. The only nit I have to pick is that the cable is not very flexible, it can knot up, but that is a minor quibble.
This little receiver is amazing. I've used it with a PC in the car with Microsoft Streets & Trips and on my boat with SeaClear navigation freeware and NOAA charts. It always locks up immediately and provides constant updates of speed and location. It's convenient to use with a long cord and magnetic head. For a very small cost it turned my notebook into a large screen electronic nautical chart and on-board GPS.
