Inside a TomTom Navigator/Leadtek 9531 GPS Receiver

27th October 2002

Article by Dave Burrows, Photos by Phil Grant (Gadjet)


Our Inside articles have been showing quite popular, and people have been wanting to see what really is inside those small GPS receivers.  Since I installed my TomTom Navigator, I've been wanting to de-install the wiring from the car so I could take some great inside photos of the Receiver, but with the flow of things, I just haven't found the 2-3 hours spare it would take me to do this.


Thanks to Phil (Gadjet), he's just pulled apart his Leadtek 9531 which is the same receiver that TomTom use, and we have some great exclusive inside photos of the GPS Receiver.


A note to all those skeptic's out there who said the TomTom Navigator and Leadtek 9531 doesn't have a battery ?  Think again!  Phil's highlighted the fact with a nice big arrow! :)

Please do not try to open up your GPS Receivers, be it Pretec or another manufacturer, as this will invalidate your warranty, and in most cases it is plainly obvious that a Receiver has been opened or tampered with.


Take a look at some of these photos.
