Qstarz bluetooth gps BT-Q818Taiwanese GPS manufacturer Qstarz has launched a GPS receiver that they are calling the “Double 32” : BT-Q818. It has a 32 channel Bluetooth GPS receiver based on the MTK GPS chipset and extremely efficient power management providing a continuous navigation capability of 32 hours…

That is right 32 hours on a single charge in a 1100mAh battery is the claim. Not only that but the device has a smart power function. When the Bluetooth connection has been lost for 30 seconds the GPS enters a sleep mode until a Bluetooth connection is remade. The Qstarz BT-Q818 has a stand-by time of 360 hours… PocketGPSWorld.com will soon be receiving a sample to verify this and test the accuracy of the GPS receiver.

For the technical guys out there the device has he following specification:
Chipset: MTK
Positional accuracy: 2.5M in DGPS mode (WAAS, EGNOS etc)
Channels: 32 all in view tracking
Antenna: Built in patch
Sensitivity: -158dBm
Cold Start: <39 secs
Hot start: <1 sec
Battery: 1100 mAh re-chargeable Li-ion
Charge time: 3 hours
Protocol: NMEA 0183
Size: 27.2x46.5x20 mm

As with a lot of equipment now the device is charged using a standard mini-USB interface allowing it to be charged from the supplied mains adapter, a car charger, or a PC.

The Qstarz has a price tag of €89 approx £60 or US$115. Contact Qstarz for details of your nearest stockist at www.Qstarz.com

The company is now selling the Q818 on Ebay. The units arrive very quickly and work extremely well (more effective than the Fortuna Clip On).

They certainly do work well. I am currently reviewing one and the performance I have seen is excellent beating the SiRFStarIII systems in some respects.
