I'm very happy with the I-blue 737 or the version that's also a data
logger, the 747A. it's both a bluetooth and a usb receiver, so it works
with almost anything. It's got very long battery life, and recharges
from a usb cable; if you don't have a convenient usb source for
charging, you can buy them from electronics stores (special chargers
which have a usb connection as their output). it has WAAS capability
(not all do, but it's becoming less and less helpful as we get more and
more satellites up), and it has a very fast cold start time; it has AGPS
capability for increasing the speed of the cold start time, but I don't
think it makes much of a difference to it.
I bought mine from Amazon, because they usually have good prices, and a
great return policy.
