So I bought this unit for the CarPC to replace the Deluo BT GPS of mine that went out after 2.5 years of excellent service. After months of using it, I'm happy to report that in my daily usage, the chipset in this device does acquire a fix much quicker than the SiRFIII chipset in my old Deluo. To my suprise this unit actually allowed me to use BOTH the USB and the bluetooth simultaniously. This means, my carpc can establish a much quicker connection to the unit over USB, and at the same time, I can pair my phone with it over bluetooth to have access to location aware Windows Mobile applications such as Bing Search. My old deluo, wouldn't even connect over USB, it had a mini-USB port that was only used for charging the battery.

I am also completely amazed by the 5hz operational speed. Since I log my driving tracks, this really allows me to keep a smoother track of my driving, especially around turns and my navigation programs are more precise when they tell me how soon I need to make a turn.

The battery life for this unit is extremely good for its size, however I usually leave it plugged into my carPC, and leave it in operational (bluetooth listening) mode all the time. This seems to work great, because it charges automatically when I boot my CarPC, and pairs quickly when I get into my car without having to fiddle with the on/off button.

Great device! Great price.

Oh, and for those of you who would like to know why I didn't just buy another Deluo device? I mean I was very happy with it before it went out right?

This QStarz GPS just didn't work for me. I was able to establish a bluetooth connection with the Blackberry Curve 8320 phone, but when I left the GPS outside on the balcony pointing straight at the sky it found satellites a couple of times, but then lost the connections shortly afterwards. I tried twice, for approximately 15 minutes each time. When I did establish brief connections in various other positions my location was given as much as a block and a half away from my actual location, and the location varied, and in a couple of cases the mapping software on the Blackberry reported that I was moving at about 8 miles an hour, when in fact I was stationary. I bought this because I wanted the smallest device possible to pair with this non-GPS phone: The GlobalSat BT-359 is only slightly larger though, and it works well, and gets a satellite fix even inside on my desk, just as the Tom Tom 720 GPS I recently bought does. It also reports my actual location down to the correct building in the mapping software. My understanding is that the Sirf III chip it uses is the current standard for GPS devices, and is known to be sensitive and fast (it's also the same one used in the Tom Tom 720 from what I've read). What distracted me when I was originally looking for the correct device is that the GlobalSat GPS has been available for a few years, while the QStarz device is much newer, and since it was newer technology, that's the one I wanted. In this case though the general rule was broken, and the older device is by far the best.

As far as purchasing I did the transaction straight through the BuyGPSnow Web site, since they were offering a couple of accessories as add-on purchases not available here--a wall charger and a USB cable.

The GPS antenna seems to be more sensitive on the side that has the "QSTARZ" and swirls and indicator lights on it, so that side needs to face up at the sky. The unit achieves a lock in about a minute or less by the south window of my house without a full view of the sky. The unit works well with both my Nokia N800 internet tablet and OQO model 02 ultra mobile PC running Windows Vista Business and Delorme Street Atlas USA 2010 Plus, with the GPS receiver set in the GPS options as a Generic NMEA device, COM40, with 4800,8,n,1 serial port settings. On the Nokia N800, the QSTARZ device has to be paired with the number 0000 in the Control Panel and works with the Map software that came with the Nokia N800 in the, "My selection," area. You have to download the full map data separately if you want it all stored on the Nokia N800 instead of using the map software's download function, which will time out.

I have this GPS for 2 days now that I use with my Blackberry Storm and my PC and I'm really happy with this purchase!

The configuration of the GPS on the Storm is a bit tricky and you need a good software (mgmaps works well). All the issues I had were because of the softwares. The bluetooth link works well without connection drops, just issues sometimes when I start my Blackberry and it cannot connect to the GPS but just power off/on the GPS and you're good.

Charge time is 1 hour for 12 hours (from constructor) of use. Used it in the train and the precision/track was really good, except the altitude but who use it really?
USB cap is not hard to open (you absolutely don't need a needle).
AGPS mode/5Hz supported, software package is available on the website of the constructor and easy to use (just need to figure out on which COM port your GPS is connected to).
