    Since it is NMEA, it should be compatible with 99.9% of GPS software. Additionally, it supports the SiRF binary protocol, so there are extra things you should be able to do with it using special software.

    The cable is roughly 3-4feet long and is non-detachable. Also the demension is roughly 2"x2". Again its been working great for me, I live in the NYC area of the USA. I paid about 70us dollars shipped on ebay, watch ebay good, and u can get it for cheaper.

    The seller I bought mines from was located in the US, fyi.

    i tired it with MS street and trips 2001. and it didn't work for me. i guess the software is too old. nmea 2.0 is what street and trips uses. i think the reciever is using 2.2. some correct me if im wrong.

    i guess im gonna have to find new software....but dont know what to look to now....as ive liked using streets and trips

    Hopefully someone will be able to use soemthing in the pic as a size reference.


    The cable is about 5ft.

    As far as being weatherproof, I doubt it. resistant maybe, but not water proof without some good sealing. I have one on my car in the rear deck(right on top of the 3rd brake light, I have 5% tint so you can't see it at all), and I use one when I fly for my flight logger. For software I flipflop, sometimes Mappoint with AGPS plugin(it adds auto routing functions and tracking to MP) or Delorme Street Atlas 2004(finally they make the maps readable and the routing function is great, voice comms are excellent as well). I like the little GPS mouse so much I bought one for a friend for xmas(he loves it, he's a private pilot as well and it's fun to plot your tracks), and one for my mom so she doesn't get lost(since I live 3000 miles away it's hard to give her directions lol)

    As far as the transmissiveness of materials, fiberglass is ok there is a slight loss, carbon fiber is a little more loss over fiberglass(depending on the weave and the exact compound).
    I loveeeeeee that mouse you have in your picture. If I had a lot of money I would get the Bluetooth version MX-900. I like my corded MX-500 good enough though.
