It only came with the BlueTooth GPS receiver without any other accessories or instructions.
Charging up the device is easy because I have some mini USB cables/USB car chargers from other purchases. All I need to do is to connect a mini USB cable to the USB port of a computer.
Instructions can be downloaded from the Internet, but there was not much information about how to use this device with an Android Phone. Many GPS Bluetooth software downloaded from Play store did not work with this device, but I found one eventually that worked well with it. Here are the steps:
1. Paired up the GPS receiver and the phone via Bluetooth using the code '0000'.
2. Download Bluetooth GPS (GG MOBLAB) software from Play store. Select the Bluetooth GPS device to connect, click connect and enable Mock GPS provider option in the software,
3. Use your own GPS Nagivation software without turning on the internal GPS of the phone. The nagivation softwore should be able to read the data from the GPS receiver.
I have tested it successfully with COPILOT GPS - Plan and Explore. It has been able to keep track of the position accurately without delay.
right). After a minute or so of operation it is really quite accurate. Despite the usual occasional
swings through tens of metres, it's usually much less variable than that, even in a poor-reception
location indoors, and the OS official converter gives a very good match to the National Grid location.
The product has a sticky residue on the back, as though it had been mounted on something and then
removed, and there is an unexpected score-line across the back too. The finish on the front isn't
perfect, but it's not really intended to be looked at. The battery seems to be new - it still has
a "pull me" bit of plastic on it - but this may be false too, as the plastic doesn't cover the
contacts, but is on the other end. Presumably the battery was in circuit all the time, though
it wasn't exhausted when I received it. Charging has worked normally since (though that doesn't
cover much time).
It's really a BT-359 from GlobalSat (see http://www.usglobalsat.com/ for user manual and
support tools), re-badged as "CoPilot". The BT-359 variants differ only cosmetically, and
this re-badged version doesn't quite match any of those used by the original manufacturer.
The bluetooth pairing code is 0000 (clever, that): it needs a secure link.
I'd give it four stars - especially considering the price - if only it was really new.
I suspect it's not really second-hand either, but part of a job lot which was mounted on
something and then unmounted before being sold.
I did receive all of these items, so no complaints there.
The GPS is a compact device, that can fit comfortably into a pocket, it aquires satellites quickly, and unlike my previous device works through the windscreen of my car.
The battery is removeable. Not sure of the price or availability of a replacement battery, but the unit was only £20 anyway.
Not sure i want to do this as it is a new phone.
All I wanted was a GPS receiver to work with my phone it states it works with most smart phones. What it should say it doesn't work with one of the most popular phones sold!!
Very fed up
