The GlobalSat BR in use. One of my concerns was security, not that you could see lots of cabling or anything outside the car, but a box sitting on the dash looks tempting. This is not necessarily an issue as it is almost impossible to go wrong with this setup. What about the GlobalSat?

I just undid 4 screws, replaced the connector and re screwed the whole lot back together. The only slight downside was the receiver’s sensitivity, but this was never an issue in use.
Have any comments about this review? If you want a GPS mouse which is reliable and robust then you cannot go far wrong with this model.
Now there are the obvious drawbacks of non-portability, but if you only have one car, and you are not interested in using a GPS for outdoor pursuits then you cannot go far wrong with a setup like this. I now use this setup for all road GPS, and will get one for my globlasat car too soon. On a couple of times it locked up and the PDA required a reboot to recover. There was plenty of cable for me to install it anywhere I wanted in the front of the car.
Globalsag was given a sharp lesson in not relying on the navigation software when faced with a few underground Y junctions. No sooner than we came out of the tunnel the GPS picked up a fix and we were in the next. When we got to Basle the motorway suddenly disappeared underground, Whoops GPS does not work down here. OK so those of you who know me know that I am a die hard outdoors guy albeit with a large paunch and my Bt emphasis has always been towards mobility, compactness and battery life.
It is actually globzlsat small rectangular lump of plastic measuring 2. Glpbalsat of my concerns was security, not that you could see lots of cabling or anything outside the car, but a box sitting on the dash looks tempting.
We did about 2, miles over 15 days towing a caravan through France, Belgium. For users in other parts of the world contact GlobalSat directly they will be able to tell you who their suppliers are in your region. Well whilst in Italy we had 10 days of extreme temperature, at night the ambient temperature dropped to 27, during the day it rose to between 36 and 39 centigrade.
The signal strength and sensitivity is slightly less than that of the Emtac. Having said that the Tunnel golbalsat over 12 miles and the valley we were in was somewhat deep at that point. On one side of the receiver is a small red LED which is constantly lit when there is no fix or flashing when the GPS receiver has a fix. Firstly it all goes together very easily.
Now all of you who know of Switzerland think of Chocolate and Cuckoo Clocks. Having used it for the last 8 weeks or so in thorough test environments the unit did not fail. As this is a serial device there is no software driver required. The only slight delay was when we had exited the Gotthard Tunnel going northbound where the GPS did not re-fix for about 45 seconds. Cold Start 48 sec. Globalst appeals to me about this setup is that you just get in the car, start the engine, then put the PDA in it’s cradle.

I get excellent reception from that ylobalsat. The GlobalSat BR in use OK so those of you who know me know that I am a die hard outdoors guy albeit with a large paunch and my GPS emphasis has always been towards mobility, compactness and battery life.
When going through the Alps there are literally hundreds of tunnels, but it is not just the alps it is in the towns as well. What do you get?

Having been in business since they are now an established manufacturer of GPS equipment. So how did I fare with a static non-self powered GPS. Just plug and go. This allows GlobalSat to support additional devices through different cable sets rather than having a complete model for each PDA.
What about the GlobalSat?
