USB GPS Receiver

The BU-353 GPS Receiver can be utilized in a variety of applications which require GPS signals to be received and decoded in your Windows laptop or tablet PC, and for Mac users, their iBooks or Powerbooks. Compatible with most all NMEA compliant third-party software, the BU-353 is suitable for use in vehicle, marine and aviation navigation, as well as commercial and municipality applications such as fire trucks, police cars, buses, GIS data collection and much more!

The BU-353’s slim profile housing is completely water resistant and incorporates an active patch antenna for the highest level of GPS accuracy. With a 60” cable, placement of the GPS receiver anywhere within the vehicle will usually get sufficient GPS signal reception, but in those rare occurrences when towering high-rises offer challenging satellite reception, simply place the BU-353 on the vehicle’s roof (attaches with its built-in magnet) for improved reception.

Since power and data are transferred through the same USB cable from the BU-353, there’s no need for batteries or any other external power source.

BU-353W Package Contents:
* BU-353RB USB GPS Receiver
* (1) Suction Cup

* CD-ROM (User Manual & GPS Info Test Utility)
NOTE: The BU-353-RB and BU-353-W are the same GPS receiver, but packaged in different retail boxes. The BU-353-RB is geared for the Mac user because it includes a demo version of the "Route Buddy" mapping software. The GPS receiver comes with both WIN and MAC drivers on CD-ROM in either style packaging.

Compatible With Windows XP/ Vista/ 7

Just plug it in and you're LOCATED!! Works with every mapping program I've used (Google Earth, Marine Navigators, Microsoft Streets, etc.) The small size and magnetic bottom make it easy to slap on top of your car and use your laptop as a HUGE GPS system. I usually just throw it on my dash and have no degradation in signal strength. HIGHLY recommended.

The gpsinfo.exe is NOT good. It can not find the GPS, yet the GPS does work. The text boxes and other display boxes are over-lapping. I have the BU-353. Also had some problems with the PC crashing but this may be a conflict with old Delorme serial emulator which I disabled. We will see as I use it day to day.

This is the fastest lock GPS device I have used, and I have used about a dozen. One thing though-I was having trouble with it crashing my Vista laptop after a couple hours of use. I Solved this by going to Control Panel->Hardware and Sound->Device Manager->Under Ports->Select Properties of Prolific USB-to-Serial...->Port Settings->(Change Flow Control to Hardware) then->Select Advanced->Change both buffers to 1. And that totally solved the blue screen issue I was having. Great product, best available USB GPS. -Thanks
