VisionTac Bluetooth GPS

VisionTac this weekend said it would adapt a new Bluetooth-based GPS receiver, the VGPS-700, for the US market. The adapter adds mapping to PDAs, phones, and other Bluetooth-equipped devices that lack the feature. However, the company stresses that its receiver is small and light enough at 2.1 inches long and 33 grams to be carried easily in a pocket alongside its host. Despite this, it uses the current-generation SiRFStar III chipset accurate to within 1 meter and also sports its own lithium-ion battery for between 8 to 12 hours of active use. An external battery pack will extend that time to between 18 and 20 hours. VisionTac has not committed to a launch date or price but promises a low cost thanks to the VGPS-700's minimal design.
