I then decided to put the unit to a real test to see it’s capabilities. What does it look like? Accuracy is subject to change in accordance with the U. Later on I was trying to get connected to my iPAQ with the Emtac next to me in the centre of my lounge which is at least 3 yards if not 4 from the nearest window and I found that I had a 5 satellite fix.

The only thing I can assume is that somehow Bluetooth is multiplexing the serial ports, I have not worked out which end is doing the multiplexing, other than knowing that it is not the Emtac. The synthetic screen displays on the PDA in this manual and on the package description are for demonstration purposes only. That said it is cutting edge technology and will probably come down in price in time.

Built-in Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery Antenna Type: A notation of relative unit such as the satellite signal strength received. For information about Pocket PC operation and application software installation, please refer to the documentation that accompanies each product.

Make sure the GPS application installed completely and correctly. The constellation of the GPS satellites is not geostationary. Rmtac particular series of watches uses a GPS receiver to calculate speed and distance. He started I4U News back in and evolved it into vibrant technology news and tech and toy shopping hub.

Accuracy of position fixes longitude, latitude and altitude can be affected by alterations made to the GPS satellites by the U. This optional active antenna is embedded magnet in the bottom for easy mounting on metal surface, be caution not put near to materials are sensitive to magnetic field, such as magnetic storage media like floppy diskette.

Its parts, like connector pin and jack, can be damaged. When the CF LP GPS warms up to its normal operation temperature, moisture can aggregate inside it, which may severely damage electronic circuit boards inside.

I am not really sure if utopia is ever achievable, but you really cannot get much closer.

The pattern created by the relative positioning of a GPS satellite network is designed to achieve a emtwc high probability of global satellite coverage even in the event of satellite outages.

I was amazed at the number of satellites being fixed by the receiver: The position data is then converted within the receiver to latitude and longitude coordinates, which is usually provided in the geodetic datum on which GPS is based WGS The Author and Pocket GPS accept no responsibility for accident, loss, damage or injury however caused.


I thought that emtav something was wrong, or maybe it was a specially clear day or something.


The screen image to the left shows a differential fix in OziExplorer, taken with the receiver on my office windowsill. Would I buy one? Open Sky and Ematc Reacquisition: Conclusion Almost GPS utopia but not quite.
