I expect you need a computer to tell it to take a survey.  Once that works, 
you don't need a computer if you don't change the location.  (It's actually 
the antenna location that matters.  You can move the unit around in your lab.)

You probably want to keep an eye on it while the survey is happening.  You 
don't need to watch closely, just stick around to see it get started and/or 
peek occasionally to see if it is making any progress.  The status page will 
show you the satellites.  That's a quick sanity check that your antenna is 
good enough.  There is also a progress counter or % or something like that.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
