PocketGPSWorld GPS Hardware/Bluetooth Menu

 

Bluetooth GPS Receivers are new and first came out in the autumn of 2002. These have their own battery source, so unlike the GPS Sleeves and CF GPS Cards do not drain the Pocket PC or Palm's internal battery.

These are great for in-car street routing, giving you a wireless setup, and are also good for when you are out walking or hiking. The only thing you need to make sure is that you do have a Bluetooth connected PDA. If you're unsure if your PDA support Bluetooth check out our GPS Hardware Comparisons page and look at the relevant table for your PDA.

copilotbtgps.php CoPilot Bluetooth GPS Review
TravRoute recently brought out their new Bluetooth GPS Receiver, and we have a unit here for review. Although the CoPilot Bluetooth GPS Receiver looks famliarly like an Emtac/Socket BT GPS, I have been assured by Alk that it is not, and that it does have a different FCC ID showing it as a different product.

emtac-mini-s3-bt-gps-r1004.php Emtac Mini S3 Bluetooth GPS receiver review
The first Bluetooth GPS receiver that I reviewed was the original Emtac Bluetooth GPS way back in 2002. At the time this was the first Bluetooth GPS and it stood the test of time. Transplant introduced this GPS receiver in the USA. Over the years the Emtac brand has changed hands and is now owned by Transplant. In that time a number of BT GPS receivers have been released. The most recent and the subject of this review is the Emtac Mini S3 Bluetooth Receiver.

globalsat-bt-328-gps-review.php Globalsat BT-328 Bluetooth GPS receiver review
GlobalSat are a renowned manufacturer of GPS devices pioneering the way with the second generation Bluetooth GPS the BT-338 which is a standard by which other devices are measured. Recently they introduced a low cost companion to the BT-338: the GlobalSat BT-328. The GlobalSat BT-328 is a low power SiRF 2 Bluetooth GPS receiver. With a recommended price of 70 it is half the price of the BT-338.

Globalsat have been amongst the frontrunners in the manufacture of Bluetooth GPS receivers from the day they launched the legendary BT-308. The second generation Globalsat BT-338 Bluetooth GPS set the standard by which other bluetooth GPS devices are measured. Previous GlobalSat GPS reveivers worked wonderfully but were not exactly pleasing on the eye. This changed with the award winning BR-355 and now the new BT-359W and BT-359S Bluetooth receivers have had some thought put into the design into the outer casing as well as the internal electronics...

Globalsat were first to market with a SiRFStarIII receiver, the BT338 but there have been many more since then. Guidetek have produced the GS-R238, a nice looking SiRFStarIII receiver which some of you may notice bears more than a passing resemblance to the Holux GPSlim receiver...
haicom305n.php Haicom 305n and 401 BT GPS receiver review
They say that the first impression counts and this is one of the things Haicom scores. Just opening the box, the lucky buyer finds himself with details he/she would probably think of buying extra. Looking at the devices themselves we also find them having very good finishing, CLEARLY better than many plastic boxes out there, that someone “threw in” some circuitry (usually re-branded) that does something (in our case a GPS). Here we talk about a device clearly designed for what it does and implementing some interesting ideas!
haicombtslipper.php Haicom BT-401 Bluetooth Slipper Review
The Bluetooth Slipper is a converter for existing Haicom 303 cards, the 303MMF, 303E and 303S. The slipper will not work with any other Compact Flash cards. What you do is simply insert the card part of the GPS into the BT Slipper and the BT Slipper will power up and start trying to send out a Bluetooth signal, just like a regular Bluetooth GPS Receiver would do.

leadtek-9553-bt-gps-review.php Leadtek 9553 BT GPS receiver review
The Leadtek 9553 is one of the latest (and greatest) generation of Bluetooth GPS receivers designed for PDAs, Smartphones and PCs. Almost all of the receivers have similar performance which is understandable as they are using the same core technologies. The differences mainly occur in the power sources, the antenna and the styling. The style of the Leadtek 9553 is what really makes it stand out from the crowd, but does it back up the style with performance and staying power? Read on and find out what we thought of this sexy little GPS receiver...
