Last year we reviewed the Solar Bluetooth GPS receiver from F-Tech. Back then the receiver had a weirdo 8 Channel Xemics chipset that was both low power and low performance. But the device deserves the credit for being the first commercially available solar BT GPS.

Technology has moved on, and we now have a much bigger choice of Solar receivers. F-Tech have upgraded their original model with a SiRF III chipset version and a MediaTek MT3 chipset version (both called 2.3 Series). They have also brought out a smaller receiver, dubbed the mini-Solar (or 2.5 Series), also with a choice of SiRF III and MediaTek MT3 chipsets.

I've got a cheap solar gps QSTAR, 8 Channel. I was quite surprised that the battery regularly lasts in excess of 16 hours, Which is plenty for a full days use. The previous BT gps I had hardly managed 8 hours.
