Product Description

The BR-355 GPS Receiver can be utilized in a variety of applications which require GPS signals to be received and decoded in your Windows laptop or tablet PC, and for Mac users, their iBooks or Powerbooks. Compatible with most all NMEA compliant third-party software, the BR-355 is suitable for use in vehicle, marine and aviation navigation, as well as commercial and municipality applications such as fire trucks, police cars, buses, GIS data collection and much more. The BR-355's slim profile housing is completely waterproof and incorporates an active patch antenna for the highest level of GPS accuracy. The BR-355 requires either the USB or Serial RS232/PS2 cable set to function (sold seperately). Placement of the GPS receiver anywhere within the vehicle will usually get sufficient GPS signal reception, but in those rare occurrences when towering high-rises offer challenging satellite reception, simply place the BR-35r on the vehicle's roof (attaches with its built-in magnet) for improved reception. Since power is transferred through your PC's USB port or the keyboard port, depending on which cable set is connected. Data is also transmitted to the USB port or the RS232 port depending on which cable set is used.BR-355 Package Contents: BR-355 Serial GPS Receiver. CD-ROM (User Manual & GPS Info Test Utility)

I got this unit because it was recommended for a Nikon GPS project. The instructions required this puck to be ripped up and the working innards to be relocated to a tiny project box along with Nikon's MC35 cable innards. I am happy to report that this is a snappy SIRF Star III device which now contributes to lat long and UTC time stamps on the EXIF data on my Nikon D300..

I bought this little guy to use with my Kenwood TM-D710A dual band ham radio. After cutting off the PS2 connector and soldering on a 1/8" headphone connector (and wiring up a 5V regulator in my car) I was good to go. This thing draws so little current, I just leave it on all the time and I don't have to wait for a lock time when I head off.

Works perfectly with my APRS setup and should work well for other things too. I will probably buy another on later this year for my high altitude balloon project.

I should also note that the receive did come with a wiring diagram with wire colors and pin locations called out, so you could use the connector or cut it off easily.

Compact SiRF Star III-based GPS mouse. Works with SiRFDemo PC program as well as other host GPS packages. This is firmware flashable. Serial and USB versions work equally well. The serial version has a serial cable yet it still requires some kind of power cabled to this serial cable. You can modify the cable and connector or purchase an adapter dongle that provides a DB-9 and power feature. The USB version needs no additional cables or connectors- just plug it in a USB port.

All,
With a little bit of effort they work great for ham radio APRS.
Good solid unit. Recommend them to my clients.

Good sensitivity, better than many other units. Works well in amateur radio APRS service. Does not have RF interference from 2-Meter band radio energy. Works very well.

I bought this unit to use with my Kenwood D-710. Once you have the power supply worked out, it's plug and play with the D-710

I bought this unit after I read the other review about using it with a TM-D710A. This unit works superbly, and acquires FAST. Really fast. All you need to do is provide it with 5V and hook up the serial lines to the radio's 3/32" GPS cable, and you're good to go.

A 7805 regulator is cheap and easy for providing 5V from your vehicle's DC system. I used a small breadboard to wire it all up and stuffed everything in a small plastic box. Works like a charm for my mobile APRS/Digipeater setup.

(Edited to Add): The magnet in the base is not very strong at all, so be aware of that

I bought this to use as the speed sensor for a boat cruise control with an Arduino Mega 2560 board as the controller. It took me a while to figure out that this spits out a 5V RS232 signal (-5V to +5V) and my Arduino can only read TTL (0V to +5V). I added an inexpensive RS232 to TTL converter between the two and everything came to life. I am able to read and manipulate any piece of GPS data that comes out of the serial stream.

Here's a link to the converter I used. I removed the 9-pin connector and hard wired it for my own selfish purposes.

I have this one for testing and installed the GlobalSat MR350P permanently through a hole in the fiberglass in my boat. I love these things. I can switch back and forth between the two and my Arduino doesn't know the difference.
