Incorporating a SiRF IV GPS chipset with built-in patch antenna you get an acutely accurate GPS system that's able to perform well even with low signal levels. Data output contains latitude, longitude, altitude and velocity, which can be used to plot your path on Google maps or even Google earth. Tracking multiple satellites at a time and having a 0.1 second reacquisition time as well as a fast startup it can easily give you a true live feed of your précised movements. The Altitude limit is 18000 meters and velocity limit exceeds 500 meters per second which is faster than the speed of sound which is fairly impressive for such as compact device.

So whether you’re driving across the country, traveling around the world or just going to the local store this USB GPS receiver is a serious contender for the best and most convenient portable GPS unit.
