  • Bu-353 or PCMCIA?

    I've read good things about the Globalsat Bu-353 for navigation but to prevent too many wires running around inside my car I was wondering if anyone is using a pcmcia gps receiver without problems?

    The advantage to using the bu-353 is that it will be sitting on my dash inside the car as opposed to the pcmcia being inside my laptop sitting underneath the passenger seat. Any recommendations?

    The BU353 is great.
    I'd think the reception on a PCMCIA unit under the seat would be less, simnply because of it's location.
    The receiver needs to "see the sky", which is kinda difficult buried under a seat.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      Thanks! I think I'll go ahead and order one then. Other choice would be a bluetooth receiver but from what I've been reading the bu-353 has better reception than those as well.
