Garmin 18x OEM
The GPS 18x is an OEM, high-sensitivity
GPS sensor for use in automotive, marine, fleet vehicle, and electronics
applications that require a small, highly accurate GPS receiver.
It replaces the GPS 18 sensor.
This high-sensitivity, 12-parallel-channel,
WAAS-enabled GPS receiver is available in CMOS-level serial or
USB 2.0 full-speed versions and comes with an integrated magnetic
base. The puck-like receiver is 2.4 inches in diameter and weighs
just a few ounces, making it an ideal solution for applications
where space is at a premium.
The GPS 18x is offered in three different
cable configurations. All three versions of the GPS 18x come complete
with non-volatile memory for storage of configuration information,
a real-time clock and raw measurement output data for sophisticated

18x USB and NMEA GPS Applications:
GPS 18x USB can be used with non-Garmin software which requires
NMEA input if GpsGate is
used. The GPS 18 produces data ONLY in the Garmin proprietary
format and so is directly compatible ONLY with Garmin mapping
products, or other software products that can decipher Garmin
protocol such as FUGAWI software.
GPS 18 and Linux (Customer feedback):
"We were able to get the GPS18 working
in Linux quite nicely!
This driver supports a few other similar units and come kernel
2.6.11, the driver will be included!
I use this setup weekly when setting up wireless networks
or just finding new clients' sites."
