    I have a BU-303 and appreciate the work you have done here on this review.

    One small question, I assume that the car was stationary during both examples.
    It seems that the Lat varied, but the Longitude was the same.. do you know which one was more correct ??

    Admin: this should be a sticky
    Thanks for the compliments. The GPS's were tested in my room actually; I put them both out the window (in the same EXACT location). I believe the Rikaline is slightly more accurate since I know the altitude is 850ft. For the longitude, the BU-303 only measured a couple of inches different than the Rikaline so I wouldn't worry about it. It is pretty amazing that they both measured the same exact latitude; shows how accurate they both are.

    have you looked at the rikaline box at all? I haven't seen one but judging by the little you can see in the picture it almost looks like the magnets that are on a lot of USB cables.

    The Rikaline gps is waterproof and withstands rain and car washes very well.

    Same for the BU-303. I found a website once that showed that it was waterproof and havent been able to prove otherwise. I have mine on the roof of the car for about 6 months
    You can still have something if you have nothing

    My BU-303 proved itself twice to not be waterproof. Both times it dried out eventually and kept working, but it didn't hold up to well, to a car wash (hand wash) and a light overnight rain.

    But hey... who am I to judge.
