Chris, June 25, 2012 I installed this unit in a cuddy boat and got excellent
reception under the fiberglass foredeck. The time to first
fix was especially impressive, it had a solid fix before
the computer booted up. It is paired with the Panasonic
tough book running seaclear and it just works, first time,
Seth, March 6, 2012 This little guy worked great with my laptop. I used it to
interface with ArcMap 10 as I had a crop survey project I
needed to complete and needed to edit data realtime as I was
driving around. Ive used trimble units before, and they are
amazing, but I wanted to edit data directly in the ArcMap
environment without having to worry about any data transfer
or conversions. I did need to use Franson GpsGate 2.6 so
ArcMap could see it, but once it was found, worked like a
charm. Excellent if all you need is a general idea of where
you are in the world. Definitely NOT mapping grade but will
get you with 5m of your location every time at speeds from 0
David, April 5, 2011 Turns out this GPS does not output a format that I needed, so
it it useless to me. If it is a Garmin, I am sure it works
great, but I will never know.
KQ4KK, February 11, 2011 The new 18x is very fast to aquire, very acurate with WASS.
Very easy to setup fo use on HAM APRS or the new Uniden
Scanner HP-1. The price is hard to beat.
This is a true RS-232 serial port GPS. It is also a 5vdc
GPS, which Garmin has solved by putting a Cig lighter 12vdc
adapter on the end. DO NOT CUT OFF THE CIG LIGHTER ADAPTER
AND PLUG INTO 12VDC DIRECT. YOU WILL BURN OUT THE GPS.
