USB GPS Receiver
Discontinued. Check out the BU-353 for more great features>>
BU-303 USB GPS Receiver has improved accuracy by utilizing WAAS-enabled
GPS positioning when connected to your laptop's USB port. Travel
positions are updated in real-time on your laptop or tablet PC
with use of your own street mapping software. BU-303 includes
a driver to convert the USB port into a virtual COM port so it
can work with these and most any other NMEA compliant mapping
software on the market today.

such as OziExplorer to display
your location on digital topographic maps (such as those supplied
by Spectrum Digital Imaging)
or marine cartography (Digital

is totally NMEA-compliant and has the powerful SiRF II low-power
chipset imbedded into its internal design. This requires up to
75% less power to operate than comparable technologies with quick
cold-start times of only 45 seconds while enhanced technology
also provides improved tracking in weak signal areas.
BU-303 USB GPS receiver is designed to plug into most any laptop
PC's USB port without the need of an additional source for power!
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 60" cable with a suction cup clip and the water-resistant
housing with a built-in magnet allows flexibility for in-vehicle
or external placement.
