Pocket Size Portable Rechargeable Bluetooth GPS Reciever for use with mobile phones, laptops, netbooks etc.

The CoPilot BT GPS comes with SiRF IIe/LP support and can run in both NMEA and SiRF mode. It's size is virtually the same as the Emtac/Socket BT GPS Receivers which means it is small and lightweight. The CoPilot BT GPS also sports an external MCX antenna socket on the right hand side of the receiver, and below the LED's is a whole for a safety strap. One thing Lutz does is have the GPS Receiver hanging on a cord around his neck when outdoors (there's a little opening for that on the receiver similar to the way you can carry digital cameras around). On the base of the receiver are two non-slip rubber strips to help keep the receiver in position when traveling in-car.

Connecting to the GPS
Getting the Pocket PC to connect to the CoPilot BT GPS was straight forward, creating a Bluetooth bond/pairing the Pocket PC and BT GPS together using the passkey 0183 created a successful bond.

Surf Star II is an old chipset as far as I'm aware .So, you might well need to use the external arial socket that's built in to this unit if your using it inside a car . The Surf Star III will work inside your house , mine does . This Morgan one is ideal for outside use , say , to link to your PDA running Memory Map or TomTom.

How does this unit actually work. Does it have maps pre installed.? Seems very cheap if thats the case.

No, you need to buy software & maps separately.

It's allows you to use GPS apps on a phone or netbook that does not have a built-in GPS receiver but does have bluetooth.

Thanks nick1austin
