When trying the NDS on my Ubuntu I also found it works better when its away from the laptop on the usb cable than came with the device. The only tricky thing you might find is that there is no really easy way of determining what port number has been assigned to the GPS unit which might make it a little frustrating for non tech-savvy users. Worth the money Good product. No biggie as this is the only thing you will probably need to change.

If you’re a Linux or Windows user, the Donvle is definitely a worthwhile investment for anyone looking for a trouble free, easy to use GPS solution. I couldn’t be happier.

Once the NDS is up and running, there seem to be far fewer dropouts in built-up areas or on cloudy days etc It’s good to see sellers dognle valuing customer satisfaction. I was able to run the device with several free map apps but I could not get Microsoft streets to recognize the device.
No biggie as this is the only thing you will probably need to change. G;s device is one of four other devices I own.

I am running win 8 64 on my laptop and it picked up the device with no problem. If you’ve never used a USB type GPS before you might be a little intimidated by xongle setup required to hsb the unit working with whatever program your using but the manual is pretty clear and the main thing you need to do is go into the Windows Dev ice Manager and set the port settings to whatever your program requires.
Additional Product Features User Interface. In conclusion I’d have to say this thing deserves top marks. Installation was straight forward. It doesn’t need a battery and drains very little power.

I was a little sceptical about buying this receiver as it got a few bad reviews The quality of manufacture is superb.
A great reliable and portable GPS receiver!
For some reason probably Windows it seems to default to baud instead of the that most programs seem to like. Since most of my use would be outdoors sailing or driving I decided hd-100s give it a try.
From there all you need to is specify the serial port number the operating system has allocated to the GPS receiver and away you go! It quickly acquires satellites for almost instant tracking.
I did not spend much time trying to get it to work with streets, so it may be a user issue problem. Compared to other devices I own, I find that the time nd-10s lock a position is about average for a GPS device these days.
