Tested, works out of the box with openplotter and very cheap
:VK172 G-MOUSE USB GPS/GLONASS USB GPS Receiver for Windows 10/8/7/VISTA/XP | eBay
Tested: BU-353S4 (yours) works out of the box with openplotter.
Tested: High end: Dual-nav from Digital Yatch:Digital Yacht - GPS150 DUALNAVâ„˘ GPS/GLONASS SENSOR
. really, I must admit that I have tested many GPS versions, and most works out of the box when run under Linux
(openplotter for example) either in GPSD mode or as serial
device. For example the VK172 G-MOUSE in the ebay link above was not immediately recognized when using GPSD but worked perfect as a serial device.
USB GPS versions need a little bit more fiddling so they might not be the best option if you are not experienced with linux
I suggest that you try your VK172 G-MOUSE (Ublox 7020 chip) ( with /dev/ttyACM0 and 4800 baud - just confirmed the setting from a running openplotter 0.8 installation
