Now, since the GPS receiver is attached to my keychain, I'm quite sure that I will have it with me 99 % of the time which makes sense. I always have my keychain and my mobile phone with me and this is the perfect combination.<p><a href='http://www.theunwired.net/?item=review-proporta-freedom-keychain-gps-sirf-iii-receiver' target='_blank'>http://www.theunwired.net/?item=review-proporta-freedom-keychain-gps-sirf-iii-receiver</a></p>

I was very impressed with Proporta's Freedom mini-GPS keychain. Not only was it the easiest to use, most accurate GPS device I've used to-date, being the size of a key-fob, it's also the easiest to take along. It's capable of acquiring a signal in your pocket, in your vehicle, even indoors. And with a battery life of upwards of nine hours, the Freedom mini-GPS is an excellent value. I could honestly find nothing wrong with it, nor any way to improve upon it. I wasn't even put off by its $130 price tag...Proporta's Freedom mini-GPS keychain is one of the few products good enough to earn a perfect score of 5 out of 5.<p><a href='http://www.computingunplugged.com/issues/issue200711/00002080003.html' target='_blank'>http://www.computingunplugged.com/issues/issue200711/00002080003.html</a></p>
