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 customer applications.

GPS 18x USB and NMEA GPS Applications:
GPS GateThe 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.

About 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."
