Would it work with a Kindle Fire tablet?
« on: May 10, 2012, 12:51:26 pm »

Unfortunately, the BU-353 would not be able to work with this tablet. Since it's running on Android OS, we do not have any available drivers for it.

We have our own application for Android-based phones and tablets, but we are not sure if that would include the Kindle Fire, as the Kindle Fire is technically based off of Android. However, there might be some "missing" parts that are required for the BU-353 to work on it.

Android has the built-in drivers for our USB GPS Receivers in it's Linux kernel (PL2303). If your device is running Honeycomb and above (Android 3.1 ~ Android 4.2), then, you can use the "UsbGPS4Honeycomb_MR1_alpha" app to get the USB GPS Receiver working. Please download it from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=32851757&postcount=58

This app was created for us by a developer in France and it appears to be working, although, we cannot guarantee that it will work on all Android devices, like the Kindle Fire HD.

We would like to suggest to take a look at this video created by the developer that shows how to use the app: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scDqVFPN9lU
