Garmin receiver 18X LVC

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Component for NTPd / GPSd Projects 01/21/2015

This review is from: Garmin receiver 18X LVC

Pros: Exactly as other reviews state: PPS, and my units also did not require a factory reset. The length of the cable was approximately fifteen feet, and the box was sturdy.

If you're looking for a GPS antennae for an NTPd/GPSd backed time clock on your home network it is a perfect fit.

Cons: You will need the RS232 connector and a spare USB plug to complete this component (and a PC that takes serial).

Soldering can be tough if you've never done it before, I'd highly suggest getting extras on the RS232 connectors if they're plastic and you've never done it before.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent product! 05/18/2014

This review is from: Garmin receiver 18X LVC

Pros: Exactly as expected. Unit ships with an odd connector (4 thin wires, yellow - white - green - black; and 2 thick wires; red - black).

Did not have to factory reset the unit as others had mentioned might be needed (on other sites). The receiver has a very nice long sleeve for the cables - easily fifteen feet.

Also had a magnetic base which I wasn't aware of, but was somewhat amused/happy about.

Wonderful addition to any network for accurate time keeping.

Cons: None, although for some reason newegg's price is considerably higher than others....

Other Thoughts: If you want to make your own stratum 1 server you will most likely want a few of these: Assembled DB9 Female Solder D-SUB Connector with Plastic Backs

My soldering skills aren't the best, and a shaky hand doesn't help - so get extras if you're in the same boat.
