Not only did it end up right in the passenger footwell, but it managed to flip over and the antenna is facing down. Both of the devices are the same width, but the BT is almost half the depth of the BT Sharing the same technology they differ only in the design of the casing. Some of these have seen production others have fallen by the wayside. I’m a bit leery of buying the unit and it not connecting to the tablet. It is certainly very convenient as all modern PCs have USB ports and I suppose that it also represents an overall cost saving for the manufacturers as they no longer provide a mains power supply. If the receiver does not detect a connection then it will automatically power itself off after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Is your gTablet stock? I’m a bit leery of buying the unit and it not connecting to the tablet.
GlobalSat BT-359 Bluetooth GPS Receiver
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. If not, maybe you remember what’s on the other side? I was wondering if it where possible to disasemble a Globalsat BT Bluetooth GPS, wich uses a bluetooth module to send its gps strings trough the bluetooth protocal SPP serial dataand read the gps string with the arduino.
Some of these have seen production others have fallen by the wayside. Thread Deleted Email Thread Page 1 of 2 1 2. Maps also worked as you would expect it should. Two of these designs have now been developed and are now available for purchase. This receiver uses the tried and trusted ceramic patch antenna which is located directly under the metal shielding.
In fact is is quite amazing how little space there is for the GPS and Bluetooth components in the receiver. The GPS module and the bluetooth module create a wireles bg-359.
And if this where possible use the bluetooth module wich should listen to serial data from the GPS, as a link from the arduino to the PC. Staying on the subject of power but moving to the battery.
I was also testing a number of other GPS devices so I had a short trip that I recorded on each device from my hotel to the Tourist Bus stop. It looks bf-359 in real life but is quite difficult to photograph. It is also compatible with all of the GPS software that I have tried. GlobalSat has responded with a receiver that in my opinion is better than the BT in all aspects with the exception of battery power, but who needs more than 15 hours anyway? There is no indication if the car adapter is 12 volt or volt.
Android Apps and Games. Make sure the arduino and BT share ground, ie connect the arduino ground to the -ve battery terminal sorry for the impending screen rape by this huge pic.
Globalsat BT Bluetooth GPS receiver review
I know it is possible with a globalsat BT from a tutorial i found online google “globalsat arduino” i cant post the link yet, bot restriction i gues.
Gsqt of the features that a lot of people ask for is a receiver that will remain powered and active when installed permanently in a car.
GlobalSat have been amongst the frontrunners in the manufacture of Bluetooth GPS receivers from the day they launched the legendary BT Do you know what’s under the metalic boxes I see on this picture you took? I don’t have Globalsat BT The metal boxes covering components are soldered on. Gsaf the receiver does not detect a connection then it will automatically power itself off after 10 minutes of inactivity.
As mentioned above there are two designs for the casing, which move the GPS receivers from the realms of Techno Devices to fashionable electronics with street cred Interestingly both devices show errors towards the top where I turned left. However I was able to prise the edges up and take peek at the internals. However you will have to connect it to gsar always on power source.
I use tom tom mk2, works well with bluetooth gps app, and wireless tether app from your phone, vegan gb 7 only works with google maps 5. GlobalSat have made a stylish, well designed GPS receiver, which is ht-359 packed full of features.
Substratum The ultimate, most complete theming solution for Android. I have also tested a wide range of software applications and not found one that failed to use the GPS receiver correctly. If you install the BT with a permanent USB power connection then it will not automatically switch off after 10 minutes of non-activity.
