"AGI-G217 USB GPS Receiver"

... on the USB side of things, it shows up as prolific 2303: PL-2303
USB-to-Serial drivers are a PITA (pain in the backside) to find though
/ the website for drivers changed.

Apparently, the current list price is "$40 USD / wholesale for
cheaper" ... not sure what the deal I got was. Mine might've "fallen
off a truck" or something shady to explain inventory loss. Really not
sure.

oops ... somehow I ONLY paid for shipping. Really can't explain why or
what happened: $6.76 shipped via "sendfromchina.com" and tracking via
"hongkongpost.com"

It's not timing mode though...

As for your second question "low cost timing mode unit?  How about one
with minimal soldering required?"

Basically, "motorola oncore" variants such as the M12+T / M12M ... or
UT or otherwise...

The ones I was originally talking about in this thread / earlier
post... These can KINDA be found for less than $100 and I'm starting
to think that's probably as far down as "low cost" can get for timing
mode.
