There is a multi-PLATFORM. It supports the following: Linux, Windows, and the like. Plug and play is supported by the Stratux project. 7 ft. cord is used for remote mounting. The new chip is the U-blox 7. It's durable. IPX6 is dust-tight. It's durable. IPX6 is dust-tight.
👤I've bought 2 of these over the course of 2 years. I use them for my gps device while flying. The gps is very good. I get 10m position accuracy and it locks onto a gps position. The wire near the plastic gps housing developed issues such that the wire would no longer provide a signal. I had to open the units and bend the wire on the end near the housing to find a wire position that would allow the serial port to communicate again. I wrapped the wire in electrical tape and placed it in the bent position. Both of them continued to work. I'm going to try a braided cable for my Stratux and a G mouse for a test to see if I can get something that will last longer.
👤I found a gps receiver that will work on my pi network time server. It took me several minutes to get a minimum of 3 satellites required by the software on theRaspberry Pi, even though my other gps was ok. I had to fuss with it because it wouldn't remain locked. After plugging it in and starting the gps server, it would lock onto several satellites within seconds and remain locked to those satellites. I monitored the operation for several days using U-Center windows software and found the gps to be fast and sensitive, picking up and locking onto over 4 satellites within seconds. The gps is 5 feet from a window. It is even faster outside. My NTP server is up and running because of its default output. My computer time needs to be accurate to milliseconds, and an accurate NTP server is needed for my ham radio equipment.
👤I bought this to use in a data logging project I'm building for my car. It's great to have support out of the box. It's very easy to get data from third party applications. Works well with Kismet. I mounted it to the roof of my car and it has not had any issues moving around. It is easy to route through weather stripping and door mold for a hidden wire installation with the built inusb cable.
👤If the internet goes down, I wanted a time source for the pi. I didn't have to move my pi because it has a nice long lead. I could put it in the window. I don't know why it says "suction power", it doesn't have a cup on it, but it has a magnetic base.
👤It works well on the boat even when it's inside on the navigation desk, because I bought this to use with OpenCPN. It was easy to setup. If you find that the unit can't acquire enough satellites, you could mount it on the deck in a waterproof enclosure.
👤It is easy to find satellites, and interface nicely with OpenCPN. Plug it in, start xgps and then replug in a couple of seconds. Within seconds, it will start acquiring satellites, because it wakes up xgps to a device being attached. The old one I used was ten times worse than this one. It's a great example of how things have improved over time.
All of the following models are compatible with the ASGPS NMEA adapter: SOLIX, HELIX, HELIX 10, HELIX 9, HELIX 8, HELIX 7 G2N, and G3N. HD DI combo, 959ci. HD XD combo, 1159ci HD combo, 1159ci HD DI combo, 1199ci HD SI combo. The receiver has a 3.25" diameter, 1.5" high and comes with 20' cable and a stem with a 14 thread count. The compatible Humminbird product requires software that is at least 6.570. The ASGPS NMEA cable is required for connection to SOLIX and ONIX Series. The ASGPS is required by APEX. InterLink will not work with this gps receiver. It is 1.5 inch high and comes with 20' cable. Fast position fixes are accurate within 2.5 meters.
👤I bought this unit to make my Solix 12 position information more accurate. It was mounted on a Ram D VHF antenna mount, which was perfect for my bass boat. There were no interference problems. I am using it to map the bottom of a historically significant bay. It allows me to run a parallel track with close spacing to make sure my DI and SI collections are fully covered.
👤Works as advertised. I put my Helix 12 SI up front. I now have a stationary heading indicator. The online video shows you how to program your Helix to use the external sensor instead of the internal one.
👤I mounted this unit on the rear deck. The chart is easy to navigate, and I am certain that the craft is going in a certain direction. It is worth owning. The only way to get there is with an antenna. I secured mine to the rear deck with a simple method. The satellites are able to see the antenna from several hundred miles above you. They can see over your shoulder.
👤I use my Helix 7 on my trolly motor to keep my heading on point.
👤Before drilling holes, be sure to try out the install location on your boat. The unit has a magnetic compass, so any motor, speaker or magnet will throw it off.
👤The accuracy is increased to within a few feet.
👤I have mounted this on my Polaris Ranger for ice fishing and will purchase a second for my boat. I was hoping for better accuracy in the gps, heading sensor, and speed areas.
👤Happy husband, happy wife, happy life? It was a good purchase. It is what it says it is. If you use Graphs to find the fish, you need one.
👤The product is authentic. Excellent price.
Menu is used to get the data from the gps receiver after instialled U-CENTER V8X. The software can be downloaded from the official website. It's compatible with Win 11/10/ Win 8/. Win 7/Vista/XP/98/CE. The software is free. All-in-view tracking on 56 channels. The U-BLOX 7 Chipset has a Magnetic base, high sensitivity and Strong Singal. Tracking sensitivity is high. IPX4 water resistance, dust-tight, cable length is 6.5 Ft. OpenCPN can be supported on the Raspberry Pi. One year warranty.
👤I was able to get the gps receiver to work with OpenCPN on my cheapo Windows 10 tablets. I plugged the receiver into the port that was provided for it. The driver was installed by Windows 10. I opened the "Option" menu, selected "Connections", and then clicked to look at the available COM ports. In my case, I chose the newCOM7 for me, and chose a buad rate of 9600, which is the same as the standard 4800 default. I clicked "Apply" and voila! The satellite logo in the upper right corner of the screen turned red to green when my boat appeared on the chart. The Ublox program is not needed. The big take-away is that Windows 10 will automatically download the right driver, but it is only for the serial tousb part of the receiver. It shows up on Windows 10 Device Manager as a new COM port, not as a "GPS Receiver" or something similar, but as a new port under the "Ports (COM & LPT)" header. OpenCPN can receive and decode the "GPGSV" and "GPGLL" sentences if the receiver spits them out.
👤I wanted to use Open CPN as a navigation software and install the U-Blox 7 gps sensor. Not this year. The "sensor" is not compatible with Windows 10 without uploading a Virtual Comm Port. On the U-Blox website, they offer the VCP with an.EXE extension, but it is not an exe file, but something called a 10 file. I think you understand the picture. The internet is full of people who are experiencing the same issues. All necessary charts are downloaded and plug-ins are available. If your computer isn'tGPS enabled and you are using OpenCPN, I would suggest you use another antenna. Why 2 stars. I was able to get the software they give to see antenna performance to work, and the lat and lon were correct. I have been trying to work around the difference between a device and a sensor for over four hours. I sent emails to both of them with no response.
👤This device was bought with the intention of cannibalizing it. Attach it to a port and read the output for accuracy. The device I tested used a /dev/cu* device instead of a tty. The time and gps information was accurate. The internal device was in the shell. I had to destroy the shell. There aren't any screws. The RF shield fell off. It had to be re- soldered back on. There are five The Ubx-G7020-KT is the "standard" grade device. The more rugged G7020-KA is not what it is. There is a small battery on the board that can be used for a real time clock. This would allow for quicker signal acquisition. I would expect this device to fail after a few years. I wouldn't recommend this device for harsh environments. The manufacturing process used is flawed and no gasket are used to stop the flow of water. The manufacturing process was not enough to keep the shield in place. There are three The chip is not rated for harsh environments. It was a bargain, but don't trust it if safety or cyber security is ever going to be an issue. The battery was a pleasant surprise, but I wonder why the low end device has this.
The link to use the template is in the description. The gps module will not search for signals when the weather is bad and it will not search for stars indoors. Please make sure that the gps module is in an open location when using it. The main module of the GT-U7 needs to be set to 9600 instead of 4800 to drive a hardware high precision clock. The phone data cable can be used directly on the computer point of view, and the default distribution of active antenna can be quickly positioned with the IPEX antenna interface. The host computer-owned serial port function allows for the sending of IPX interface active antenna without the need for an external serial module.
👤The U-Blox Neo 6m is a clone of this chip. There is a It's a device that uses 5 volts. Both 5v with Rx and Tx. The Baud rate is higher than typical modules. Once you are connected, it works with TinyGPS and AdadfruitGPS libraries. The U-blox U-Center software can be used to interface directly with the chip. The U-center is complex and daunting. Since the device is a clone not every feature is guaranteed to work through U-Center but many useful settings do. The software is a direct software. The baud rate may be different for the serial and theusb connection. It costs me a lot of pain to learn, so I'm going to try it out. I am using several of this module. It gets a fix very fast.
👤The unit is a great value. It appears to use an authentic U-Blox chip under the metal can and white label. Most U-Center software functions seem to work. I made an NTP time server using theRaspberry Pi 2. Accuracy can be reached down to a few 10s of seconds. This requires configuring the Pi to accept a signal from one of the pins. I used the "GPSD" and "NTPD" packages to interface with the unit. When first powered up, the gpsd appears to update the time and other parameters that allow a quick "cold fix" when the TX and RX serial lines are connected. There is a word on power and levels. The module on the board is 3.3v. The board has a 3.3volt regulator that can be used to power theusb port. The Vcc pin is connected to the input. This is the updated version. The Vcc pin is the only one that can be used to power the module. The Vcc pin on the onboard voltage regulator is not functioning properly. It appears to function normally, but will be subject to very frequent dropouts of 3D lock and other erratic operation. Also. If a computer is connected to a computer and the board is operating from 3.3v on the Vcc pin, the device providing power to 5v on its 3.3v output would be required. Be careful. 3.3v is the logic high input/output levels of the TXD, RXD and PPS pins. The link in the listing clearly states these interface pins are not 5 volts. If you use a device that uses 5v as its logic "high" to connect to an input on this device, you will damage the chip. It may work for a while, but it's stressing the chip beyond the maximum ratings. The data on the receiving device will be very sensitive to noise and corrupted data, so the data on the outputs is not damaged. It may seem like it works, but you should invest in a cheap 3.3v level conversion chip for a few dollars if you want to connect to an auderc. The device is exactly the same as the pi.
👤I love these things. It works beautifully with the TinyGPS library and is 5V friendly. You can modify the ublox u-center software if you hunt it down. I've been using them for custom clocks. Don't set the time! Even from a cold start in the basement, aGPS lock can be achieved in minutes.
Add Gps. You can strengthen your Gps signal on any device by connecting via wireless. The free downloadable app provides accurate gps coordinates, position update rate change, and much more. Being able to add accurate gps to your device will allow you to use hundreds of available apps. The Gps receiver has a battery life of over eight hours of continuous use and comes with a usb charging cord. That will stick to most surfaces.
👤It works better than I anticipated. I have an older WiFi only iPad Mini that I wanted to use for navigation but it doesn't have built-in gps. When I connected my iPad mini to the dual XGPS105A via a wireless connection, it asked to download the accompanying app. The app is useful. It tells you the number of satellites you are connected to, the signal strength, position information, and the battery status. I turned it on in the house because I couldn't wait but I was able to connect to multiple satellites with ease. I thought I would have to go outside. With the gps locked and loaded, I tried out some maps. Both worked well. My weather radar map is now location enabled. Awesome. I have taken it down the road a few times now, about 100 miles total, without issue, but I will update this review once I have a longer road trip under my belt. I didn't expect to see the app mentioned in any of the reviews or forums. This thing is special. I can't wait to try it out against other devices, like a newer iPad, windows tablets, and some surveying equipment. I will report back, but so far it's been good.
👤Don't buy anything from AXXERA or DUAL. The unit will work for 25 times, then the internals will short out, killing the battery, but they will sell you another battery. Next year there will be some other name. They changed their names to keep up with consumer fraud. Don't buy anything made by these people. You will be sad.
👤I bought a gps receiver for my Jeep. This product works in conjunction with my Apple iPad and provides pin point accurate gps for any app you are using. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to connect to my iPad via BluTooth once I turn on the puck. This could be my fault. Overall very pleased! It's easy to charge up at home or in your vehicle. Very easy to use. I stuck a piece of tape to the back of the vehicle and it still works.
👤For almost two months, use the dual XGPS150A with my iPad 2. Since the iPad 2 didn't have a gps receiver installed, I decided to use the dual XGPS 150A, which is described in the technical documentation to receive 12 gps and up. The dual XGPS15A is a free navigation app that has a very simple and minimalist design. The dual XGPS150A receiver is small and has Haptics very pleasant. The gps is green. The Bluethooth connection is created relatively fast after switch on, but the GLONASS satellites are not supported, but they are displayed in the app, but they are crossed out. It happens in dense forests on winding roads and in large cities close to tall houses. When you're on foot in New York, Boston, and Chicago, the pressure point is non-tactile, so locating is almost non-existent. The dual XGPS150A would no longer splash water and dirt if you removed the plastic cover and cut a hole in the non-slip pad.
The LVC sensor has a bare wire connection. High SensitivityGPS was enabled by the WAAS. A receiver. The end can be attached to a CMOS for original applications. Storage of configuration information can be done with nonvolatile memory. The raw measurement output data is used for customer applications.
👤I use this puck as a high-precision time source. The LVS models have a 1PPS output with a nominal 1uS accuracy. The price is less than the one that it replaced, which was bought a decade ago for $75. The 18x is said to offer better reception. Where I have it placed, it only sees part of the sky. I hoped that it would do better than the other way around. The 18x sees more satellites than the 18 but the accuracy of the signal is not better than the 18. It's good to have a spare and I'm fine with that.
👤Over the years, I have purchased many of these units. It has always exceeded my expectations. For many years, this unit was stuck to the roof of a vehicle, and it worked for many years. It is waterproof. I don't think many vehicles could achieve a speed that would peel this off a roof, and it has internal magnates. If you want to bolt it down, there is a spot for a bolt mount. At least the paint on my vehicles is not discolored. It has an internal battery that can be used to power down for a period of time to help with acquisition. It would always have very fast signal acquisition upon power up, which was less than a minute, and it would work everywhere, including underground parking garage signals. The internal power will run down after an extended power down, and it will take a few minutes to get a good fix. It survived all the seasons and never failed. I purchased several others for balloon mounted APRS trackers, and they worked well, where other gps units would have a hard time dealing with the signal bending effects of a hot air balloon envelope. Several more were purchased due to the 1PPS out signal to create an array of several gps timed NTP server for some product development use, that proved to be so reliable, accurate and stabile. The waterproof hockey puck is a must have. The units have been stuck on the roof of a metal building for many years and have not had any issues. If you need a WAAS enabled gps unit for a project, this is the one. You need a Windows PC with serial to run the configuration/firmware update utility if you want to change any of the unit's options, and you need to solder them to something to use them. The ones I've purchased have always been advertised as connectionless, but they have a non waterproof test connector that can easily be removed.
👤I have a serial card in aSqueeze box that is attached to the 18x LVC gps. The time is not accurately set by the gps units. I use a specific serial card to power the 18x LVCGPS unit. The card can be configured to supply either 5 or 12 volts on pin 9 of theRS-232DB-9, and can draw power from the PC power supply directly via the onboard Molex floppy power connector. The latter option was used by me. Setserial recognized the card as having a 16550A UART with a baud base of 921600 once the jumpers had been set. The best option is to install the unit outside, as the gps unit is mounted on the chimney and the satellite signals are weak. The location gives the gps a clear view of the sky, but the serial cable is not long enough to reach the computer inside the house, so I replaced almost all of the original cable. The wires are very thin, especially the three signal wires. I cut the original cable close to the unit and extended it with my own cable which runs all the way back to the computer and is terminated with a serialDB-9 connector. Remember to use a shielded cable if you do this. There are five wires that need to be used for the serial connection: Measurement pulse output (PPS) from theGPS is yellow, transmit is white, receive is green, and ground is black. I used a shielded CAT 6 cable and joined the pairs together at both ends to give me four of the connections: transmit, receive, and power. I used the drain wire as the ground to connect the black wires together at the end of the cable, and then used the DB-9 to pin the black wires together at the other end. There is a threaded brass recess on the underside of the 18x LVC. I have as well.
There is a gps receiver for windows 10. There is a gps receiver called the g-mose. Windows 10,Vista/XP/CE are supported. The reference coordinate system is called the WGS. Tracking sensitivity is.
👤It works on Windows 10 and the Pi. It will take some time and technical ability to get it going. It is not possible to use gisnass with gps/waas simultaneously. It's limited use for most. Don't abuse build quality, you will be fine. --- The review is for technical users. Instructions, software, drivers, etc. are not included in the VK172. It uses the u-blox 7020 chip and outputs a stream of standard messages. Special configuration messages can be sent/received without the software, but it's not as easy. I used Windows 10 for initial testing. It was assigned a serial comm port after plugging it in. It depends on what drivers you already have installed. I used PuTTY terminal software to connect to it after using device manager to find the correct comm port number. It showed the sentences immediately, even though the baud rate was set to a different standard. I downloaded the UBLOX "u-center for windows" software to see if it worked. Within a few minutes, I had a lock on my position and the blue led started to flash. This was not near windows. After a while, it picked up a signal from the WAAS and was receiving satellites. I felt the device was barely warm after 20 minutes. I tested it with a real time gps mode and it worked just fine. It took nearly 5 minutes to get a 3D fix after I tried it again the next morning. It may be that night time RF signals get less interference or that it didn't retain the ephemeris data. At night it was around 2 and at day it was over 3-4. When moving the receiver close to a window, two WAAS satellites were picked up. The daytimePDOP improved to 1.3-1.8. A full cold start in this location took 5 minutes and 20 seconds to get an initial fix. A hot start took less than a minute. A warm start took 31 seconds. It isn't too useful in reality because it's advertised as working with Glonass satellites. The configuration through the software seems to show that Glonass isn't enabled. The documentation states that neither gps nor qzs can be enabled. After disabling all other systems, I was able to enable Glonass. The only advantage would be if it received both at the same time. Since it doesn't, there is no point in bothering with it. I did a quick test on the Pi 3 after playing with Windows. I connected to the serial port using the putty program. I watched the expected strings. Gpsd seemed to work after a bit of effort. I looked inside. The ublox G7020-KT gps chip, ft25h03s 4Mbit serial flash, small battery like component, and patch antenna are notable components. The battery is just over 1 watt. The markings are obscured, but I think it's an XH414 which is a battery-operated device that can be used for a hot start. The soldering was good, except for the mechanical contact points which had not flowed properly, the signal pins were fine. I did not need to touch up the weak solder joints. It is a decent unit if you don't need the two things at the same time.
There is an optional atenna stem with a 1 inch 14 thread count stem. It is made of high quality material. This is a car antenna that is compatible with many brands of cars. This antenna improves the positioning accuracy of your car. The antenna has a magnetic base which can be applied to any metal surface. It is easy to connect a computer and add software.
👤I attached multiple systems, including a PC laptop and a Macbook. None of the systems detected it when it was plugged in. Send back.
👤I bought it for the cable. I tried it on my computer. Neither device recognized it. It tried plugging in to 3 different ports on my Rpi, but each time I tried to use a port, it was empty.
👤This item is not compatible with my in dash navigation system.

If you lose your Airtag in a 20-story building, the Airtag won't be able to tell you the height of the building or the floor, even if they're in the same building. If the Airtag is too far away for my phone to connect with it, you are standing in a dead spot. You need to walk around until the Airtag can connect with your phone. The Airtag only works if there are Apple products in the area. Only the 11 and above versions of the Apple device are able to use the precision location feature. There is a Some countries will not work for Airtags, even if there are iPhones around. I was told that countries like Russia and Indonesia can be updated, but I need to keep an eye out. There is a The less remote you are, the less reliable the Airtag is. There is a If you have an Airtag, good Samaritans will reach out to you. This depends on where you live. The device is helping three types of people. The other is the one that keeps losing their stuff in public places. Two, the ones that lose their stuff at home every day, such as keys, purses, and stuff you can't leave the house with. A mix of both. The Airtag is not a real-time tracker. Don't attach this to your dog because it only works if the iPhones are in the area. You will get scratches on it as well. The tracking technology that is out there is similar to the precision location feature. It has the same flaws as well. The Airtag is an effective tracking device, requiring nothing more than an Apple device, which most already own. The layout was responsive, accurate, and useful. The precision location feature is a lifesaver if you need to find something quickly. I have a thumbs up to Apple in regards to the privacy issue. The fear of someone knowing your location is dead. Privacy is important for a device like this. The device is only built for the Apple community. I hope I helped you. Honest reviewer.

👤I am skeptical about this purchase. Buying from a small unknown company was a bit of a gamble for me, as Stratux is a do-it-yourself kit. I ordered it anyway, and I thought that if it didn't work, Amazon would be fine with that. I couldn't get the thing to sync up to my Ipad after it charged the battery pack. I thought it was impossible. I called the number listed on the instructions sheet to see if I could get help. Straight to the phone. I got a call back as I was about to go through Amazon's return policies. The guy is doing a great job. A military pilot and instructor. He just loves aviation. I was helped out over the phone. Highly recommend this company. He does it for the joy rather than the money. It was well spent.
👤This product is amazing. I can't emphasize enough how many times the Stratux has saved me and my students by helping us avoid traffic, as a CFI who flies 7 days a week in some of the busiest airspace in the country. Let's talk about the price first. The Stratux is the best deal if you're on a budget. If you can get all the features you need for less than half the price of a Scout, for example, why would you want to spend $500 or more on something? I have never had an issue with ForeFlight's internet connection. I haven't had an issue with the card since I had an issue with Sean, who resolved the problem in the most expedient manner, which is rare these days. I have flown for hours in the Texas summer weather and have had no issues, even when the weather is close to freezing. I bought another external battery just in case, because the external battery will power the unit throughout the day. The Stratux is a good choice for peace of mind and safety. I refuse to fly without my Stratux because it's an incredible tool that adds a massive layer of situational awareness. The CO2CREA Hard Travel Case is a must have for the Stratux to prevent it from getting damaged.
👤I was contacted by Sean at Crew Dog Electronics within an hour after some initial issues were thought to be related to the Stratux. I didn't even consider getting a resolution from Crew Dog Electronics because I had been over 30 days since I purchased the Stratux. I thought I had issues with the Stratux, I was on my own. I was mistaken. Sean at CDE was quick to assess the situation. Since the last update of the Foreflight platform, there have been some serious connection loss issues with the devices such as the Stratux and the Stratus 2. I'm not the only one who has lost their gps signal with an ADS-B receiver that is used in conjunction with Foreflight. Some of the people with similar issues are looking for other EFB platforms because this is a Foreflight issue and not a Stratux issue. Sean at Crew Dog Electronics offered to inspect, repair or replace my Stratux if there was an actual problem with the internal gps, and of course also addressed the loose antenna connection issue I mentioned in my initial review. I was pleasantly surprised. It's clear that Sean is passionate about his product and is quick to address any potential issues with the Stratux, even though he has had several email conversations with him regarding this issue. You can't beat that kind of customer service, even if it costs you about $1,000. After receiving the unit back from Crew Dog Electronics a few days ago, I was able to fly with it yesterday and it worked perfectly! The ForeFlight update was released after many complaints of loss of signal, but not a single issue post update. Crew Dogs Electronics included their new mount for the Stratux, which went on without a hitch on the flying lawnmower. Crew Dogs Electronics has total professionals and on top of their game. Cheers.
A built-in gps patch antenna. A built-in roof mount Magnet. There is a serial port interface. Slim Profile Housing. It is compatible with most software. If you are using a laptop, you will need a cable set.
👤The Uniden SDS 100 works great with this, you just get the cable from Uniden, and you save $25+ compared to buying the Uniden gps kit. The radio will detect it if you connect the cable.
👤I use this to connect to my mobile radio. The radio needs aGPS to function properly when it's on the go. None of the other gps receivers worked for me. The serial gps device works for the TM-700A. I made a box that converts the 6 PIN DIn to the 5V DC that I can use to plug in a 5v DC transformer. The gps came up and locked when the radio was plugged in.
👤The Uniden rebadges is completely interchangeable with the Uniden gps puck, including the 6-pin DIN connector. It picks up a usable signal in my basement, and has good sensitivity. The data is industry standard. When searching for satellites, the LEDs blink when they get a fix. Here's the wiring diagram for the black and shield. The ground. Red is required for 50mA and Green is required for 50mA and White is required for 50mA. In, but not needed for most applications.
👤The GlobalSat BR-355S4 is the one I bought that has the PS/2 port, not the one with the plug. You need to provide a separate 5VDC power source for it to work. The attached picture shows the radio with "GPS Data OK" on it, along with the pinout information for both modules. Attach GlobalSat Pin5 TX to Uniden Yellow. Attach GlobalSat Pin1 GND to Uniden Green and a 5V ground. Attach GlobalSat Pin2 VCC to the power source and you'll get 5V across the center two conductors. There is a pinout on the internet. You probably have something in your junk drawer. Plug it into the cigarette charge and then find the two wires with 5V on them using a volt meter. You can find more information on the GlobalSat's website, but you can probably do it from the picture. You can solder wires if you can read pinout diagrams. I was very happy that this came together quickly. The radio now displays lat, lon, course and speed in knots with one button push. It was pretty slick.
👤The unit has worked well with several Icom radios. An interface cable is trivial. The unit is in the side of my house. It's easy to work with. If I needed another such unit, I would recommend and purchase again.
👤I attached this to my Uniden SDS-100 scanner and it registered 'GPS' on the screen. I had a Plug & Play installation. The reception seems to work well with this receiver.
👤Overall rating is 3 stars for erratic output and cost. The price of the bare clone modules is 3x the price of the puck and cabling. The output is not ttl, it's rs232 which is inverted and the voltage on mine is - 4.5v to + 7.7v. There is an added converter. Couldn't get a fix. There are twelve sv in view. Thenav rcvr warning is V. After being off for 12 hours, the device gets a lock and is powered up. GPRMC messages are emitted in a staccato fashion, making gps use as a clock with a seconds indicator a little troublesome. The pattern is around 1100ms, 300ms, 800, 800 and then repeating. The bare $10 gps modules are not a problem with this.
