GlobalSat BC-337 Compact Flash GPS Receiver Review

 

This is one of the latest releases from GlobalSat, and it certainly lives up to expectations. The results were very nice, and the unit outperforms the LeadTek CF 9534 unit I reviewed last year, mainly because of the use of the SiRFstar III chipset.

Excellent unit. Definitely worth purchasing. The LED's indicate the state of the GPS. Top feature. It also works beautifully under trees.

Product Specifications

Unlike traditional GPS receivers, which require separate antennas or wires, the BC-337 is an integrated receiver with a built-in patch antenna designed to fit directly into the Compact Flash or PCMCIA slot. The BC-337 was designed in SiRF Star III with wireless consumer applications in mind; it will give accurate readings from up to 20 channels. The BC-337 has an exceptional accuracy of WAAS, which makes it ideal for detailed turn-by-turn mapping. The BC-337 is an inexpensive, flexible alternative to traditional navigation systems. The BC-337 is truly transportable. Insert it into your PDA and place it in a convenient spot in your car and enjoy the benefits of using your additional mapping software for intelligent route calculation and voice-prompted, turn-by-turn navigation instructions.
