When we were at CeBIT earlier this month we saw a new SDIO GPS receiver from GlobalSat. At the time we had no information about it other than it had memory included.

GlobalSat have now provided us with more information and we can now reveal the specifications of the receiver. We now know that it will be a SiRF StarIII receiver with up to 512Mb of memory on board.

This should be available in stores early summer.

Hi all.
We are all very excited about this new product.

Quick update:
Our initial launch date is May 2005. This is subject to change.

A review copy will no doubt be winging its way to the guys at PocketGPS before then.

No pricing yet.
It is expected that compatibility will follow the same lines as the SD-501 with your PDA requiring an SDIO Now! slot.

We have a list of devices that have been tested with the SD-501 on the following page...

So am I. I am in regular contact with GlobalSat though and as far as I can work out they are going through their final QA processes at the moment.

I'm sure you're sick of this question but could someone hazard a rough guess at the price?

Strangely I was speaking to GlobalSat today and they are talking about October, hopefully in the first week.

The specs and design of this look great, but they wont let us get our hands on an early sample for review.
