        This is a good deal. It is a bit cheaper than I got mine for. Great software, and a gpd puck with SirfIII. Awesome reception and almost instantaneously gets a lock. And it glows blue!

            2k1Toaster, is the GPS puck signficantly better than my delorme earthmate? What about the $80 waterproof job they sell at the mp3car.com store? I'd search myself, but I don't have time at the moment...I'm studying for a board exam, so'd I'd appreciate your input.

              I don't know how good your gps puck is, because this is the only one I have used. But I read about "gets a lock in under 20 seconds" and that and I am confused. It is me pushing "Start GPS tracking" then maybe 1-2 seconds, and boom! It's got me on the map. That is right after a cold boot. It is not waterproof but you can spray that clear plasticdip stuff on it as mentioned somewhere.

                I just switched from the Earmate to the one they sell in the store (BU-353). Huge difference but I think its because the BU-353 is a SirfIII type. The Earthmate had trouble getting signal through glass/inside my car. And since it wasn;t waterproof I never ran it outside of my car.

                Is this one a SirfIII? The 2007 verions is a SirfIII.

                  Yes this version is a SirfIII. If the earthmate isn't then yes this is a significant improvement!

                    The Earthmate is not SirfIII...it's old school. Trust me, there was a huge difference.

                      Does this have a magnetic base?

                        No, but some magnetic strips can be had for a couple bucks at HomeDepot along with some clear plastic spray.

                          Thought it didn't as I couldn't find specs anywhere that said it did. I think I'm ready to upgrade mine and this is a decent deal I think. Ready to pull the trigger on the "I want one!" button.

                            Thanks for the input, guys. I found the following at Gizmodo.com:

                            The company says the GPS device now uses SiRF star III technology that's 10 times more sensitive than the GPS device included with the Streets and Trips 2006 version.
                            So, it's still probably a good deal for those without ANY GPS puck, but not for me. I think I'll wait and get the BU-353 when I can.

                              Well I thought I had been using SirfIII, and it sure seems like it. It is accurrate and fast to lock. If it isn't then I have no idea how to improve upon it!

                              To give an example, I can clearly see my self when zoomed in on the map in the correct lane. For instance on a 3 lane road, when I shift lane, the arrow moves too. It is incredably accurate. I highly reccommend it, and for that price, why not!
