The Mouse that ROARED!

Cracking gadget, extremely sensitive and relatively easy to set up. As I sit in my lounge typing this with the GPS mouse connected I can see that it has a 'fix' with no less than 8 satellites ... INDOORS! Magnetic base, decent length cable and a useful window sucker attachment. An outstanding product at avery good price.
