  1. Review by Robert - EXCELLENT PRODUCT verified purchaser

    Great product. 1 PPS signal output very useful. Good receiver sensitivity, no trouble getting satellites through the window of the house. Handy having a long antenna lead. Serial output from USB works reliably into Linux and Windows system. Works well with Raspberry Pi.

    Only shortcoming was I could not find out how to use the Blue Tooth. My phone would not connect and there are no instructions on how to use it that I could find.

    Overall the best and most versatile GPS module I could find. (Posted on 13/10/2014)
