The GlobalSat BU-353 USB GPS Receiver has improved accuracy by utilizing WAAS- and EGNOS-enabled GPS positioning when connected to your computer's USB port. Travel positions are updated in real-time on your laptop or tablet PC with the use of most mapping software titles (sold separately).
The GlobalSat BU-353 is waterproof and totally NMEA-compliant. It has the powerful SiRF Star III low-power chipset imbedded into its internal design requiring up to 75% less power to operate than comparable technologies. Features quick cold-start times of only 42 seconds while enhanced technology also provides improved tracking in weak signal areas.
The GlobalSat BU-353 is a 20-channel GPS receiver which includes a built-in LED that indicates satellite acquisition status: Solid RED indicates searching for satellites, while flashing RED indicates satellites are in view and data is being received.
The GlobalSat BU-353 is designed to plug into most any laptop PC's USB port without the need of an additional power source! Forget dealing with extra batteries, keyboard pass-through cables or 12VDC cigarette lighter adapters, because power and data are both transmitted through a single cable connected to the USB port! The 5-ft. cable with a suction cup clip and the water-resistant housing with a built-in magnet allows flexibility for in-vehicle or external placement.
The GlobalSat BU-353 includes a driver to convert the USB port into a virtual COM port so it can work with most any NMEA-compliant mapping software on the market today.
