    I'm happy to hear that 'got', I was one of the few unfortunate ones. It's especially hard esp. living in the big apple with all the obstructions.

    My BU-353 is lying in the trunk next to my computer. It always gets at least seven sats and resumes very well from hibernation. Highly recommended.

    How does your BU-353 come out of hibernation? I've tried that numerous times and it NEVER works. So I got the 355. I'm still curious.

    I just got the 353 4 days ago after living with the BU-303 for over a year. Wow, what a differernce. I've zeroed in on the hibernation thing as i've heard people talking about going serial vs. USB for that reason, but I've had zero issues with this USB one. ONE time it took 30-45 seconds to lock; all others, it's already locked RIGHT when it comes out of hibernate.

    I also placed this one in my back window, which has metallic tint on it, vs. the 303 which i had in the center of the dash i.e. front window. I've had zero issues with it being under the metallic tint. I'ts always 8 or 10 satelittes, 3D-fix.

    I'm pretty amazed by this unit, and a bit irked i let myself live that long with the 303. Sorry - no idea why hibernate is not working for you. I do have it plugged into a USB port on the PC vs. a hub but i've done nothing special to enable the success with hibernation.

    Mine worked out of the box. I've done nothing to make it work out of hibernation. It has its satellites immediately upon resume. Plus, it's plugged into a USB hub. I don't know why mine works and yours doesn't.
