Bill, August 3, 2012 Just returned from Desolation Sound using the GR213 with
Tiki Navigator, and also a Simrad chartplotter, running at
the same time. Used inside the cabin reading through the
cabin top/ glass windsheild.
The Holux provide essentially the same output. SOG was
often very slightly different, likely due to software
Kelly, March 17, 2012 Nice length on the cord, fast satellite acquisition and GPS
differential!! Great buy!!
KLL, May 12, 2011 I bought two of these to replace my recently defunct Ambicom
USB GPS, which was an outstanding, durable and inexpensive
USB GPS receiver. Highly accurate, weatherproof,
ultra-stable. the Holux GR 213 is all of those things,
though it DOES cause my laptop to hang or BSOD once or twice
every couple of days. It also overheats (I'm working in the
Mohave Desert) and has to be reset, occasionally. The
Ambicom never did this.
Sadly, Ambicom no longer makes the USB-GPS or any similar
model. The Holux is an acceptable substitute, though I miss
my Ambicom which worked in all weather, every day for five
Jon, November 30, 2010 Excellent WAAS capable unit. This is my 2nd unit. Using it
in an airplane.
