I bought one of these to replace a Garmin GPS-18 serial which finally died
after almost 10 years exposure to Southern California's highly-corrosive ozone
and SO2 laced air. The Argent works fantastically -- far more sensitive than
the earlier-technology original GPS-18.
I assume the SiRF-III-based Globalsat will have essentially identical
performance. but for direct USB-interfaced application on my netbook.
