I tried one on recommendation. I was very disappointed at the very slow response. After any elevation change it would take upwards of thirty seconds to show a stable reading. Hopeless for tracking, but maybe OK to indicate the elevation if you don't need to move the antennas very often and the wind isn't moving things around. Fail!
