The GPS part of the device is based on the SiRFstarIII high sensitivity GPS chipset, providing fast and accurate positioning, and it comes with European or North American mapping.
The device can also be used as a MP3 music player or as a digital photo viewer.
The Globalsat GV-201 is also compatible with Bluetooth mobile phones, and can be used as a handsfree car kit.
