I'm using this with Mappoint 2006 and it works flawlessly. Plugs right in and just works. Can't say any more. Seems to pick up all available satellites and provide good, repeatable position info. Impossible to recommend product more.

Received Rev. 2 GPS

by Jim on 3/30/2007

I was concerned after reading an earlier review of this product which cited some accuracy problems with the Rev. 1 product (which is what Buy.com said it is selling.) Yet when the product arrived I was pleased to find that a Rev. 2 model was delivered. I used this unit with MS Streets & Trips 2006 and, as advertised by Ambicom, it works great with this software. I think this is a great product (regardless of price - I got it for about $30 with a rebate.) I had been using an older Garmin self contained GPS unit with my laptop but was interested in a USB model because it draws its power from the laptop's USB port. I had experiencing difficulty with my Garmin's battery running low. Nothing could be simpler: easy to install driver, compact unit with strong magnet for dash or rooftop mounding, long cord, flawless performance. Oh, I forgot - LOTS of FUN!

Great Product

by alnielsen on 4/2/2007

I use Microsoft Streets & Trips. I purchaced this after the GPS reciever, supplied with the software, wouldn't work any more. It works great. The magnet, in the base, is strong and it shouldn't blow off even at high speeds.
