Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dongle works perfectly with the 'You Are Here GPS' app available from the Google Play store. If your tablet or phone does not have built-in GPS, you can use this dongle and the app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very neat and effective. It even picks up a signal indoors much of the time. Good value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Installation of the dongle was not as straight forward as it first seemed. Fortunately the disc had the user's guide with Globalsat's internet address and I downloaded the installation softwear. The disc appeared to be corrupted in some way. Once installed the dongle worked as described.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The item was promptly delivered, I installed the drivers and software without problem, unfortunately the dongle was faulty and even outdoors would not detect enough satellites to operate correctly. A quick trip to the local store provided a replacement which works perfectly as long as the dongle is near a window, the supplied software giving a fairly accurate indication of position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on both windows7, 32 & 64 bit. Drivers installed without any problems, the additional software that came with the GPS Dongle was good and worked well, but at the same it was also kind of pointless because you had to be near to a WiFi hot spot to display your location on a Map, not much use if you are in the middle of nowhere, but do not be put off buying this product has I am currently using RAC route finder 2007 with GPS and this detects this type of dongle and displays your GPS position without the need for a WiFi connection, overall a very good product at an affordable price, when you consider the cost of a portable GPS device, and taking into account that most of us take our laptops were ever we go these days. for this reason I am giving it five stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work well. The enclosed test program is reasonably useful, particularly when within wifi range and able to display a map.
