    Royaltek Sapphire GPS any good?

    I found this deal from the iGuidance website:

    IGuidance & Royaltek Sapphire combo

    I was wondering if A) this deal is any good or if anyone knew somewhere that I could find an iGuidance + decent receiver combo any cheaper and B) is this GPS receiver any good?

    I searched and could only find scattered recommendations for this receiver.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    I have one(serial type)
    My friend have one(usb type)
    Works great behind my windshield(5 - 7 satellite)!

    My old BU-303 only have (3-4 satellite) behind the windshield.
    But if you put the BU-303 on the roof(outside). It has (7-9 satellite).
    I haven't try to put the Royaltek Sapphire on the roof because there's no need to.

    I've got one (USB). I'm running it behind the windshield on the dash. It's the only thing in my entire setup that was hassle free and hasn't had to be fixed more than once!

    Love it. Gets great reception, works just fine.
