Very Nice!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have one of these and I am very happy with it. I have wired it directly to my Pockettracker with excellent results. I bought the PS-2 version, sawed off the connector, added a 7806 inside the DB9 for safety and we were off to the races. It will put out TTL or RS-232 levels, depending on your needs.
Very low power consumption, a built-in magnet and a led indicating satellite lock.
Compared to my Delorme Tripmate, it is wonderful.
