Belkin releases Bluetooth GPS Receiver
Designed to connect quickly to a PDA or laptop, the Belkin Receiver displays the user's position in real time. It shows your progress as you travel, illustrating your current location in relation to your destination. Belkin plans to begin shipping the new GPS device in North America on 15 January 2004.

The Bluetooth GPS Receiver model F8T051 has a suggested price of US$299.99. Belkin claims 10 meters accuracy. The bundled software covers any city in the US and Canada. Routes can be calculated and viewed immediately, and automated voice prompts instruct when and where to turn.

The Receiver also features a high-sensitivity mode, which allows it to function in previously inaccessible environments, such as severe urban canyons, parking garages, through dense foliage, multilevel freeways and, in many cases, indoors.

Special Features of the Belkin Software
  • Lets you choose destinations by address, intersection, point of interest, or contacts
  • Offers dynamic reroute and detour options
  • Provides 4 types of map views
  • Alerts user to speed level
  • Records your trip for future playback

    Features:
  • Includes a CLA charger (that is compatible with Dell Axim and iPAQ PDAs), USB charger, and DC charger
  • Uses removable, rechargeable lithium-polymer battery to provide up to 10 hours of continuous operation
  • Tracks position using data from 12 satellites, with an accuracy of up to 10m
