I then got another receiver out and found that that could not get a fix either. Don’t get me wrong the above may sound somewhat negative, but in fact it is very positive. The next section describes my experiences in the deconstruction of the GPS. The controls and indicators for the GPS receiver are all clustered down at one end. What can be seen very clearly is the antenna.

Over the weeks I ran both receivers in parallel on my test bed flobalsat compared the strength of fix, number of satellites fixed, and positional accuracy.
When I powered up my receiver having been sent from Taiwan it managed to obtain a factory fix in 50 seconds. The GlobalSat BT in use Well this is what it is really all about not what globalswt looks like or what is inside, but how does it work in real life.
What can be seen very clearly is the antenna.
With the two screen shots below I was in some pretty extreme locations for GPS reception. I believe that Bluetooth is the way to go certainly for outdoor GPS applications, the only thing stopping globalsar configurations from being perfect is the implementation of Bluetooth on the PDAs. But what about the bits you cant?

The biggest plus point here by far is the battery life, which really brings long days activities into easy reach. Well in reality it is almost identical in size to the Emtac except that it is a bit deeper, this additional depth caters for the extra size of the battery.
It is much more likely a “user” error, as it only happened the once. Have any comments about this review?
One big plus with this package is that the retail box comes with absolutely everything in it. What is is like to use.
This runs on the PDA and allows you to configure a number of items. The right hand shot, using Memory Map Navigator, shows the approach up another tree covered ravine. Finally gpobalsat can see the inside of the case.
So that is what the unit looks like from both the outside and the inside.

These issues may not be the fault of the BT, they may be related to the implementation of Bluetooth in the bt-380 HP have certainly taken a step back with the iPAQ it will be interesting to see what the new Window Mobile implementation of Bluetooth is like. The picture to the right shows the controls and indicators of the receiver. In fact it looks like it is on a raised platform, this is where the larger battery is located.
Interestingly the weight is not something that the manufacturers publish. The left hand shot, from Fugawi UK, shows a gap in reception for about yards, this was taken at the bottom of a steep ravine with heavy Conifer tree globalszt.
Well this is what it is really all about not what it looks like or what is inside, but how does it work in real life. 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.
To fix this problem the battery needs to be completely drained and the unit left switched on for 48 hours after.
What is it like in the field? Read on to find out. This at first concerned me. So that is the controlled lab environment. The next section describes my experiences in the deconstruction of the GPS. Review by Mike Barrett.

Due to the larger battery it also weighs a little more than the Emtac. Having been in business since they are now an established manufacturer of GPS equipment.
This meant that I would take the GPS to bits and probably never get it back together again.
