Staying on the subject of power but moving to the battery. If this all would be possible it would be great since the gps module only costs about? One item of note is the GPS has some heft to it. Okay I finally found the baud and testpoint after lots of noobish trial and error, so here’s for the benefit of the community: Interestingly both devices show errors towards the top where I turned left.

Globalsat BT-359 – GPS receiver module

Substratum The ultimate, most complete theming solution for Android. The main new feature of the GlobalSat BT is the design of the receiver. Is your gTablet stock? The power connector is very conveniently a mini USB connector.

GlobalSat BT-359 GPS Receiver

This seems to be an gsst standard for GPS receivers now. I do need to find an in car stand for my tablet but that will vsat another review. It is somewhat unusual for a manufacturer to be conservative with these sort of figures, but my testing proved to get over 15 hours from a charge.

GlobalSat quote it as 11 hours continuous usage. To get bt-3559 GPS data, you can connect a bluetooth-to-serial module, if you have, to Arduino. Even in this position the GPS receiver was still able to pull in signals from 7 satellites and provide more than adequate positioning data to navigate by.

The GPS retained the fix inside the store. Conclusions GlobalSat have done it again with the new generation Bluetooth GPS receivers, more functionality, smaller size, and now they look good too Awesome, I’d like to get one of these.


Some of these have seen production others have fallen by the wayside. I am about to buy it, but I can’t find the picture of the other side of the internals anywhere: Okay I finally found the baud and testpoint after lots of noobish vt-359 and error, so here’s for the benefit of the community: Of course the first bend I went round resulted in the GPS taking a very abrupt excursion to the floor.

The BT handled this better than the BT as you would expect. Since all it should do as bluetooth is to replace a RS wired interface.

I balanced the GPS on my dash to take this photo and forgot to reposition it in the corner of the screen where it normally sits. I’m a bit leery of buying the unit and it not connecting to the tablet. Google navigator and maps works very well with the combination of software and hardware. The Bluetooth range is perfect for that.

XDA Labs Labs is an independent app store that gives developers full control over their work. I must confess that I have not had a requirement to use any hsat charging as the battery life of the GPS is more than adequate for the traveling I do. It looks good in real life but is quite difficult to photograph.

Globalsat BT Bluetooth GPS receiver review

I don’t have any accurate scales to weigh the GPS receivers, but certainly in the hand the BT feels considerably lighter. If this all would be possible it would be great since the gps module only costs about?


If you install the BT with a permanent USB power connection then it will not automatically switch off after 10 minutes of non-activity.

Also the range from the GPS is about what you would expect for a good bluetooth device.

GlobalSat have been amongst the frontrunners in the manufacture of Bluetooth GPS receivers from the day they launched the legendary BT You can see from these images to the right that the BT is about a quarter of an inch longer than the BT If you should need to charge the receiver whilst away from a PC on the road then you can plug in the car adapter and the USB cable fits into the socket on there.

As mentioned above there are two designs for the casing, which move the GPS receivers from the realms of Techno Devices to vsat electronics with street cred Traxonja, my presumably ht-359 older model has a ceramic antenna gsa an antenna port. The BT comes with a car and wall adapter to charge the device.
