the "cheeap" Ublox dongles form ebay work at least fine under XP and win 7 if you use it as a USB serial
device and lookup the port they are assigned under device management and use this port in Opencpn connections setup. It seems to be a problem to get GPSD to recognize these dongles correctly under Ubuntu or Openplotter, but they work fine if you connect them to a serial
port in opencpn connections. ( ubuntu/Openplotter)
