Plug this USB GPS Receiver into your laptop USB slot and you’ll instantly convert your computer into the most expensive sat nav device in the world. It’s totally USB powered, accurate down to 1.5 metres and uses the ubiquitous SiRF Star III chipset to chat to those valuable little navigation satellites. You’ll need to add some compatible map software, but we’re sure you’ll know where to get that from. A cool little tool for just $23.46/£14.70.
To ensure up-to-the-second accuracy, the receiver tracks up to 20 satellites at a time, re-acquires satellite signals in about 100 milliseconds and updates position data every second. Data output by this GPS receiver include: (1) latitude/longitude/altitude; (2) velocity; (3) date/time; and (4) satellite and receiver status. An internal rechargeable Lithium-ion battery sustains the internal clock and memory and is recharged during normal operation.
