Globalsat BU-353 vs i-Blue GM-2
For months I've been wrestling with Win7 32bit hibernate isues and the BU-353. Figuring the first was bad, I went out and purchased another one with the same issues. After much troubleshooting with GPS Gate, xPort and drivers, I decided to try out the i-Blue GM-2. The first thing I noticed is that is locks almost instantaneously when compared to the BU-353. Additonally, it has a 5hz setting to make the map display much smoother. Over the past two days, I've tested this device repeatedly from startup and hibernate. It resumes everytime with both xPort and GPS Gate. If any of you are having the same hibernate issues with Win7 and the BU-353 I recommend this device to you. This is NOT intended to influence anyone away from the BU-353. Many on this forum have used it for quite some time without issue. The GM-2 is just a better experience for me.
