I bought a few used to try cross flashing to HOLUX RCV3000 (not RCV3000GL [which is MT3329 vs MT3333]) as they have the same pid vid and other fun identifiers to pickup a second constellation. On windows the CP210x drivers (as you would for ESP8266 12E) indicates as much.

I have a few bluetooth GPS receivers.  So far the ‘best’ one for me is the GNS 2000, but its battery is toast mostly.  There is a new version with firmware for three constellations: GNS 2000 plus.  Best is not requiring BT BLE, and having BT SPP for android.  Does a modern iPhone own you?  Then your phone needs BT BLE capable  GPS receiver.
