Well I tried it & it works with my apps (sort of). So far, the problems I have encountered are:
1) Every time I start nRoute, it tells me that the gps clock & the computer clock are significantly different; the gps clock being as much as 24 hours or more behind actual time. (Currently I'm in Pacific Daylight Time zone — if that makes any difference.)
2) It responds very slowly. Sitting still, it gives the correct position, but as I drive, the gps is about 1-3 minutes behind my current location. If I stop moving, the gps will eventually catch up & display my correct position. This happens in MS Streets & Trips 2006, Delorme Topo, & Garmin nRoute 2.6.1.
3) Elevation is always displayed as 0 ft.
