My window to the world


Globalsat BT359W Bluetooth GPS is here!

Nice... FedEx has just delivered a Globalsat BT359W Bluetooth GPS receiver and I couldn't wait to pair it with my desktop for testing.

This GPS will be reviewed later, but for now it's sitting in my window sill. And even with the bad positioning and awful sky (it's really overcast here in Wellington today), it manage to get five, sometimes six satellites over our heads.


This is my first experience with a SiRF Start III chipset GPS, since the other Globalsat devices here were tested by other reviewers, and so far it's been much better than an old generation GPS I had around (an old Pharos GPS).

I will pair with my Windows Mobile Pocket PC later and use it with the Navman software to navigate around town.
