BS4100: GPS for any Bluetooth device

BS4100 GPS For Bluetooth

GPS software exists for multiple platforms at this point, including cellphones and PDAs. While the latter might soon change, not everyone would care to replace their phone just to add positioning. There may be a solution in RoyalDigital's new BS4100 receiver. Its sole purpose is to act as a GPS receiver through Bluetooth for any hardware that can make the connection. The receiver uses Bluetooth 2.0 and can receive power through a USB cable. RoyalDigital makes no mention of price or availability; the only option is to submit a quote request. Still, this could be instrumental to users who want accurate map data beyond a dedicated GPS unit.
