Globalsat SDIO GPS Receiver

Posted in Gadgets and toys at 11:44 am by siddey

Taiwan’s Globalsat has released the SD-502 GPS receiver. Designed to fit into your PDA’s SDIO slot, SD GPS receivers have been available for a couple of years, however, this new release is more efficient, compact and rugged than its predecessors.

If you are interested in extending your PDA’s capabilities to the world of LBS, consider one of these devices instead of the more common Bluetooth variety. This integrated option effectively means one less thing to carry around in your pocket (or to lose under the seat of your car). The device comes with 512MB of on-board storage so that you are not deprived of memory capacity (another improvement over earlier GPS-only SD products).

At less than AU$250, this is a good option for extending the life of your existing PDA. Just add map software to get up and running with in-car satellite navigation at less than the price of buying a new PDA based navigation device.
