Again, I got a whole bunch of replies and don't want to flood peoples
inboxes with short answers. So here is a summary.

Spoiler alert: Robin decided on the BU-353

I have a Garmin 18 USB, which works under linux as well.

The Global Sat BU-353 has treated me extremely well, fast to lock, great
support, all around awesomeness. Just fyi, it was the one given out by
SANS 617 when I took it two years ago.

I just checked and I got the BU-303 in my SANS pack. Having done some
reading I've ordered a 353, it should be better at getting a signal,
this one took 10 mins sat (literally) in the middle of a field before
getting a lock which it then lost when I walked off the field!
