Will these Puppies work with OS X Mac ? I just bought a new iMac Recently, and getting it all loaded up...my brother showed me that type of GPSbefore, but as with a lot of Hardware; it can be difficult to find something that works.

This USB GPS receiver is cheap and very sensitive.  It will pick up signals
indoors where other GPS receivers won't.

It works great with Windows and Linux including a Raspberry Pi.  It shows up
looking like an ordinary serial port but the speed (baud) setting is
ignored.

Here is one example of how I used it, not just for getting location, but
also to set the real-time system clock.
