GlobalSat SD-501 SDIO GPS Receiver review

 

This is quite a cool looking unit with a fold up main antenna that the manufacturers describe as a high sensitivity active type. It works well with a Pocket PC, despite the SD connector.

Small profile with fold-away antenna ; Useful for many PDAs that only have SD ; Very sensitive with X-Trac ; External antenna connector ; Booster antenna included ; Low power consumption ; No need to keep charged; uses host power ; Programmable &...

SD connector in general “not so strong” and doesn't grip firmly ; Uses up SD slot which may be required for a memory card ; No onboard memory ; No onboard battery to “keep alive ; Using host power reduces operational time ; LINKS ; eFrontier.co.nz ;...

Overall, a fairly sensitive and low power unit that, with the X-Trac enhanced chipset, works work well in poor signal environments. A bit delicate for my likings, but that is not specific to this GPS unit but to SDIO devices in general.
