Guys, I've been using my iBlue 747A+ for a while now and it works 
generally very well. As a receiver I've had no issues whatsoever. As a 
logger, it's sometimes a bit tricky, but I can make it work when I rally 
want to :)
Unfortunately our recent trip to the Phils was crippled somewhat by 
non-functional cars (Mitsubishi is a pile of rubbish - never again!), 
but I managed to get some good traces anyway 
(http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Ronny%20Ager-Wick/traces/). Some are 
from places without existing satellite images, which was nice. Virgin 
territory :)
Most of the time (since I had some issues with downloading logs) I used 
it as a receiver and brought my eee PC running eeebuntu everywhere, even 
on a very bumpy trip to bunduk with a 4wd jeep (SSD instead of hard 
drive is practical).

Anyway, I bought my GPS logger here:
http://electronics.shop.ebay.co.uk/GPS-/139835/i.html?_catref=1&_fln=1&_ipg=&_ssn=higheststandardultimate&_trksid=p3911.c0.m282
I ended up paying £23 + £3 postage for it, which I think is reasonable.
If this item is difficult to get hold of in the Phils and you want one, 
I'm happy to get you one and either ship it to you directly, or if 
you're not in a hurry and want to save on postage and customs charges, I 
can put it in the next balikbayan box for you, and my family can just 
send it from the local post office in Magalang. This will take a while 
though, as we're planning on having one box arrive some time before xmas.

Ronny.
