I was able to run the device with several free map apps but I could not get Microsoft streets to recognize the device. Installation was straight forward. The only time it refused to get a fix was when I tried it on my desktop computer A great reliable and portable GPS receiver! I picked this particular unit because of its technical specifications; it draws power from USB and is smaller than the other receivers I own. Since most of my use would be outdoors sailing or driving I decided to give it a try. No biggie as this is the only thing you will probably need to change.

Skip to main content. No biggie as this is the only thing you will probably donglle to change. When trying the NDS on my Ubuntu In conclusion I’d have to say this thing deserves top marks.
Worth the money Good product.
This GPS receiver is a compact device, which gets easily plugged into your laptop. The only time it refused to get a fix was when I tried it on my desktop computer More items related to this product. This item doesn’t belong on this page. Nd-100s was able to run the device with several free map apps but I could not get Microsoft streets to recognize the device.
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! I also found it works better when its away from the laptop on the usb cable than came dongel the device.
Compared to other devices I own, I find that the time to lock a position is about average for a GPS device these days. The package arrived safely in Australia with a thank you note and some instructions for those who m ight’ve been unfortunate enough to receive damaged goods. If you’ve never used a USB type GPS before you might be a little intimidated by the setup required to get 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.
GlobalSat ND-100S Handheld GPS Receiver
It quickly acquires satellites for almost instant tracking. For the record I’m using Windows 7 Professional. If you’re a Linux or Windows user, the NDs is definitely a worthwhile investment for anyone looking for a trouble free, easy to use GPS solution. 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.

I picked this particular unit because of its technical specifications; it draws power from USB and is smaller than the other receivers I own. Since most of my nc-100s would be outdoors sailing or driving I decided to give it a try.
It’s good to see sellers are valuing customer satisfaction. A great reliable and portable GPS receiver! I did not spend much time trying to get it to work with streets, so it may bd-100s a user issue problem. This device is one of four other devices I own.
For some reason probably Windows it seems to default to baud instead of the that most programs seem to like. Once the NDS is up and running, there seem to be far fewer dropouts in built-up areas or on cloudy days etc I am running win 8 64 on my laptop and it picked up the device with no problem.
Installation was straight gpps. I was a little sceptical about buying this receiver as it got a few bad reviews The quality of donlge is superb. Additional Product Features User Interface. I couldn’t be happier. A well priced, easy to use, quality product.
