It looks interesting alright. Might be worth a test,
though it can be found sub$60 online. It's worth noting
that this unit does support AGPS. That is, one can
download gpsview to the PC and upload 7 days of ephemeris
data to the receiver which should reduce acquisition time
by quite a bit.
So yeah, would be interested to hear from those who have
tested it alongside something comperable such as another
MTK unit or a Sirf3.
A competent navigator is not the skipper who can press a button
and follow a command, but one who uses all the tools at his
disposal to navigate his course safely and efficiently.
