Globalsat Bluetooth GPS Receiver BT359C

Discontinued. Try the GlobalSat BT-368i instead >>

The GlobalSat BT-359 contains the latest SiRFIII Low Power Chipset for high sensitivity. Now available in black (formerly: silver wave, BT-359W), it communicates with host platforms, e.g. PDA, laptop, etc. via Bluetooth Serial Port Profile. With Bluetooth version 2.0 and built-in ceramic patch antenna, the BT-359 provides faster acquisition times and improves accuracy in urban canyons and under dense foliage.

It contains a replaceable battery with a large capacity, which enables the BT-359 to operate for up to 11 hours. A sliding battery lid makes it easy to remove and replace the battery without the use of tools. It also supports WAAS and EGNOS for even greater accuracy.
