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. With a 60” cable, placement of the GPS receiver anywhere in the vehicle is will work most of the time, but in those rare occurrences when towering high-rise buildings offer challenging satellite reception, simply place the BR-355 on the vehicle’s roof (attaches with its built-in magnet) for improved reception. Since power and data are transferred through the same serial cable from the BR-355, from either the host Laptop’s USB port or PS/2 port (depending on which cable set is used theres no need for additional batteries or any other external power source).
