Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 

The USGlobalSat BU-353 is a completely self-contained and waterproof GPS receiver that easily connects to your mini-ITX computer through a USB connector. With non-slip on the base and its compact deasign, the BU-353 can be utilized in a variety of applications that may require magnetic mounting with a waterproof configuration. It incorporates the latest SiRF Star III GPS chipset and an active patch antenna so you receive the highest degree of GPS accuracy.

Includes a driver to convert the USB port into a virtual COM port so it can work with most NMEA compliant mapping software on the market today.

Since the BU-353 includes both the antenna AND receiver in one unit, all you need is GPS software. You can either purchase a stand-alone GPS program, or you can purchase a software front end that includes GPS data.
