I have n iBlue 737 bluetooth GPS receiver. It is amazing. I was using the unit sold by Belkin before, but that unit had issues pairing with my bluetooth and it would sometimes require a system reboot to get it to work. This has been pretty flawless so far. Once it locks onto satellites, it sticks to it even under crappy conditions.
i have the delorme unit... but you don't have it under the vote... sad, its a really good unit, i've been using it for the past two years, and its now on my second setup .. still working great. and i just dump that thing into my glove compartment with my carputer under my seat. it have great reception even in my glovebox under the airbag module.
I have had the now discontinued Garmin GPS 35 since I started this journey...roughly 1998.
All in one unit, weatherproof...but I have mine mounted inside. Quick locating, maintains signal except in the worst conditions (tunnel).
Mandatory NEMA output via Serial cord...about 10' long...can take input voltage from 6 to 40 volts.
A rock solid unit.
Too bad you can only find them on ebay...if you are lucky.
I guess they also have USB models now...
I bought a No name one off ebay that supposed has the MTK chipset which they are claiming to be better than SiRF III -- we shall see about that. It should arrive next week I will post up with some reults.
Mark I eyeball and a map. It always works and does not depend on Sat locks. ;)
I have 2 Garmin GPS USB 18.
I am very happy with the accuracy, and the maps are very good that come with the gps. I hate how the gps and the maps are locked so they only work together. Maybe if these companies would spend a little less worrying about pirates, they could make the product cheaper. For a little over a hundred bucks for the unit with maps, the price cannot be beat.

thanks you :confused:

My question for owners of the system: What map software are you using with the GlobalSat BU-353?
