    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 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 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.

    It is the model number for the GlobalSat series of GPS recievers. You can check out more about the product by going here --

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