Product Specifications

If you have a Pocket PC or other device enabled with Bluetooth, now you can take advantage of your device's Bluetooth capability to wirelessly add GPS positioning technology. Whether you're a traveler and need to navigate your journey, or whether you're a field service worker and need to report your location, this is the perfect solution for you. It's great for both consumers and corporate users to benefit from the many positioning applications now available for Pocket PCs. Use it for vehicle tracking, marine navigation, aviation, topography or street-level navigation. If you have mobile Internet access, you can even combine GPS with online maps. It's easy to add Bluetooth functionality to a Pocket PC via Socket's Bluetooth Connection Kit (SDIO or CompactFlash). Pair it with Socket's Bluetooth GPS Receiver and a Bluetooth phone, and you can benefit from a real-time navigational system with access to maps on the Internet. Before, adding GPS to a Pocket PC meant using an obtrusive GPS receiver or troubling with messy cords and antennas - reducing the portability of your Pocket PC. Besides adding bulk and weight to your Pocket PC, these solutions also consumed power from your Pocket PC. Plus you had to assemble the different gadgets every time you used them. Using Bluetooth GPS eliminates all of these inconveniences. No cables also means you can position the Bluetooth GPS Receiver for optimal satellite reception. You can keep the Bluetooth GPS Receiver in your coat pocket or on your dashboard while you use it - as long as there is a direct line of sight to the sky. This lets you devote your hands to using your Pocket PC or driving your vehicle, instead of juggling devices. The unit is small and lightweight for maximum portability. The recharge-able battery lasts for six hours of continuous use.
