Default Holux GPSlim 240 Wireless Bluetooth GPS Receiver (SiRF III)

Please Login to Remove!

The HOLUX GPSlim240 Bluetooth GPS receiver (called GPSlim240) is a fully integrated GPS receiver. It includes a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, GPS antenna, and Bluetooth connectivity. It also incorporates a third-generation chipset designed by America's SiRF Technology for low power consumption. All features are fully integrated into one unit to meet the rigorous demands of consumer's professional and personal needs. GPSlim240 is a dual-function GPS receiver. Not only does it transmit satellite data through a PDA or notebook with Bluetooth interface, but it is also a traditional GPS receiver that can deliver a satellite signal through a data cable to a device without Bluetooth interface.
The compact, stylish and handy GPSlim240 is easy to carry and can be worn across the chest. It attracts modern young women and young urban professionals who pay attention to their personal style. This device meets a range of needs such as car navigation, security, mapping, surveying, and agricultural applications. To use the device, all you need to do is to face the sky. It communicates with other electronic utilities via Bluetooth, USB-compliant interface, and has a built-in rechargeable battery to save such satellite data as the status of satellite signal, the last location, and date and time of previous use.
With low power consumption, GPSlim240 tracks 20 satellites at a time *, re-acquires the satellite signal every tenth of a second and updates position data once a second. The power saving mode (Trickle-Power) allows the unit to operate a fraction of the time. It also provides a time and position fix function (Push-to-Fix) that will switch on the unit at a designated time, even when the receiver stays off.

I have used it with a 7105t, 7130c and now 8100. Pairs and works fine with the bbs I have used. Small and last a long time.

By the way, check out the gps section on this forums for other opinions.
