    Recommendations for interior gps receiver

    Im trying to find a GPS receiver that I can put inside the car instead of outside. I was pulling a navigation unit out of a toyota, and they had this little tiny GPS receiver under alot of crap in the dash, so I figured there has to be something that good that is USB. Ive read some forums about mounting on the windshield, which Im going to try, but wanted to know what people are using for the interior of the car. Someone tried to wrip mine off. Ive been using a BU-303, and happy as hell with it, but I need a new one now.
    thanks for any help

    I'm using the BU-355 and it works great inside my car. 8/8 to 10/10 in..NYC. Ask anyone, that's hard to get in New York. The 353 works the same too but I usually put my pc into hibernate so I can resume quicker than fully booting up all the time. Let me know if you need any.

    the dash is mostly plastic.. i have mine under my dash and it works fine.. somehow when its raining i get better signal though.. but usually it pulls anywhere between 4-6 satellites in any one location, but in rain it pulls like 8 sats.

    omg...i hate that thing. Well besides going through the DeLorme, Navsync, Rikaline 6010 and the bu303. The 355 works awesome. No offense. I'm glad that that reciever works for you. btw..i have the 353 and 355 if anyone is interested plus, i have two rikaline 6010's and one delorme for sale if anyone wants to try their luck.

    i think i know what you mean by hate it. but for the price you cant beat it. i think everything else was much more expensive, or had even more problems. mine for example wont run in SiRF. after you cut power to the thing it resets to defaults. 4800baud NMEA
