Here is my final review with this kit with all the components hardware included on this kit. The installation was straight forward easy to do specially those who are at minimum level of skill. This unit has default baudrate of 9,600. But it can be adjusted to 4,800baudrate permanently or back & forth. On my area at ground floor level of my apartment on which also sorrounded with an apartment building I can fix 3-4 satellite in a few seconds. I can't compute how many seconds as I already stuck/(rusty) on cutting fish, Lol. I've already forgot the right formula on computing the electrical transient (need a thourough review on academic). On the outside of my little porch I acquired 7 satellite fixed almost instantly and i can compared it to em408, holux, sanav, mtk, gstar and delou on which this u-blox is more faster to acquire a satellite signal. All of the mentioned gps module, I had on hand before thats why I can tell which of those are faster to acquire a signal. On a moving vehicle: In a open area, I will say it is the way to go. the signal never drop down to the lowest instead it acquired more and more signal from the satellite. On an urban area(downtown Vancouver), it is also capable of retaining its good signal and it drop down to only 2-3level of it signal level from 35-40.
The gps module manufacturer has there own utility to use and its way way better than other gps viewer utility that I have used before. Other gps viwer like the navigator, gpsviewer and the like don't like it. It will give some error. I don't know the other viewer right there but as to what I've mentioned. Its all rejected. Only u-blox utility can be use as far as I know. The utility include your direction, altitude, your position, your speed and much much more. i am not yet finnish experimenting this utility as i am busy on my day job and few toughbook to work on. For futher info of the module you can go manufacturer website and download the complete pdf file for your reference.
I used the MS street and trips and delorme atlas for navigation at 4,800 baudrate without any hitch or problem. So, I can assume that it will be fine to use those navigational software for much longer period of time on the road or whatever. I don't know the other software as I don't have those but I can say it will be safe also.
Bluettoth: the bluetooth range from 5 to 10 meter distance as it was eclosed to a magnesium case. All the bluetooth accessories like your phone, mouse, keyboard and others will only be ideal to the distance mentioned.
This review was only based on to what I have experienced and the testing result that I have conducted on to this kit. This is only a reference and info. I am not responsible to any damaged to property ot anything involved due to irresponsible used of the said equiptment. Thank you.
PS. Accuracy: I never yet tested the accuracy of this unit so, I will lay it down to you guys.
