Garmin GTU 10 is being used by some, but have not heard about much else... Anyone using the PocketFinder by any chance?

I use the GTU-10, picked up a factory refurb for $99 on ebay with one year of service and a one year warranty. I only use the on-demand mode when using it in the 350, in the other modes where it auto updates it's location at set intervals(as often as every 15 seconds in continuous track mode) it can affect the 350's GPS when it's transmitting. Downside to on demand is if it gets "lost" somewhere that the GTU-10 looses either cell or GPS, or it gets damaged in a crash(seems pretty tough though, it has survived a couple crashes that the 350 body hasn't and it doesn't have a scratch) then it will do no good.
Another FYI continuous track is an additional fee, buy by the month, $4.95 iirc. The standard service gets you a max update rate of every 30 seconds. But again for me after testing I won't use any of the auto update modes while flying due to the interference from tbe gtu-10 transmitting via cell. YRMV

Trak-4 is cheap, and only costs about $5 per month. Spytec's monthly fee is higher, but it does better in terms of accuracy and provides more functions, especially the SOS function for those who travel alone. The battery life is about two and a half weeks, which is at a medium level among similar GPS.
