I have purchased one of these units, the problems is for us who are constantly in the future and use Vista this unit can not be used, The software that comes with it is for XP users, I also have Xp on another computer and the interface software is old and should be updated, I recommend using other Sim card reading software that is more in the 2008 than from 1998. Obviously MI6 uses an older operating system

Is anybody able to recomend a similar and 'up to date' product with these or better features?

It should work with XP and Vista also.


It appears that this product is behind the times. With that being said, is there a computer app that provides the info Bond was abe to obtain in Casino Royale? It appeared as if the app he used was able to map out locations (automatically) where calls originated from and were place to, based on the information on the sim card.
