Many years ago I reviewed the first ever Bluetooth GPS made by Emtac. That was an impressive bit of kit back in 2002... The latest Bluetooth GPS device from Emtac, the mini-S3, features a SiRFIII chipset, and has sufficient power for 8 hours all in a package that is 33% smaller than the original receiver.

When the first Emtac Bluetooth GPS receiver was released I rightly raved about it. It was a great GPS receiver which stood the test of time. There were lots of BT GPS devices released in the year after, but the Emtac held the lead until the SiRFIII devices started hitting the marketplace. Lets hope that the mini-S3 puts Emtac back up there at the top of the market again.

Looking at the pictures the mini-S3 is a compact receiver fitting snuggly in the palm of your hand. It has a standard mini-usb power connector which allows it to be charged in a number of different ways without having to resort to using a dedicated adapter. It also has a replaceable battery which will extend the working life of the device.

Priced at $100 it will be available worldwide through Emtac distributors and retailers. Check out http://www.emtac.com/about/partner.html for your nearest Emtac partner.

Transplant GPS introduces the EMTAC mini-S3 Bluetooth GPS Receiver.

Rochester, MN (USA) December 6, 2006 – Transplant GPS, the worldwide distributor of EMTAC brand products, today announced the release of the EMTAC mini-S3 Bluetooth GPS Receiver (mini-S3).

Nearly a third smaller than its predecessor, the mini-S3 easily fits into a pocket or purse and is perfect for almost any application. From hiking and geocaching to vehicle and marine navigation, the mini-S3 shines in nearly any setting. The mini-S3 is powered by the SiRFstarIII chipset for fast acquisition times and the ability to maintain a GPS fix, even in tough conditions.

Weighing in at 60 grams and measuring a mere 67 x 48 x 18 mm, the mini-S3 is a high performance, low power consumption, and very small Bluetooth GPS designed to compliment Smartphones and other Bluetooth enabled handheld devices. Its rubberized, non-slip coating keeps it from sliding around on the dash or slipping out of your hands.

Compatible with Bluetooth enabled PDAs, SmartPhones, Handheld PCs, Notebook PCs and other Bluetooth enabled mobile devices, the mini-S3 allows you to receive GPS data wirelessly. By transmitting GPS position data via Bluetooth, the user can position the receiver for the best possible reception.. The SiRFstarIII chipset provides superior sensitivity, enabling the user to enjoy clear reception in difficult environments like urban canyons, in the mountains, or under dense foliage.

The user replaceable, Lithium-Ion battery allows for eight hours of continuous use and is easily powered and recharged by the included home & car chargers. Recharging takes only one hour and the mini-S3 can be used while charging. Plus, the mini-S3 utilizes a mini-USB charging plug, eliminating the need for multiple charging systems and making it possible to charge the unit practically anywhere.

The EMTAC Bluetooth mini-S3 receiver is available through EMTAC resellers worldwide at a suggested retail price of $99.99 USD. For additional information, visit www.EMTAC.com or www.TransplantGPS.com.
