  • In theory anything with support for NMEA 2.0 0183.

    I have had a lot of success with a Pharos BU-353 (Amazon sell it). This is amagnetic puck style receiver with a reasonably long cable. It has a modern chipset, and I've found it even has some limited indoor ability (useful for software testing!). 

    In contrast, many find the "USB pen drive" shaped devices mount too close to the laptop and are subject to interference from the laptop. This is also solved with a cable.
