The GlobalSat BR in use. Firstly it all goes together very easily. Once again the GPS re-fixed after a couple of seconds. When we got to Basle the motorway suddenly disappeared underground, Whoops GPS does not work down here. Well at least partially.

You really only need 4 or 5 satellites fixed to navigate on globalat roads and this GPS receiver delivers more than that.

OK so those of you who know me know that I am a die hard outdoors guy albeit with a large paunch and my GPS emphasis has always been towards mobility, gglobalsat and battery life.

The GlobalSat BR in use. Now all of you who know of Switzerland think of Chocolate and Cuckoo Clocks. At no point did I have any problems with the GPS, it was just the driver and passengers who overheated.

All in all I am very happy with the GPS and will continue to use it on a daily basis. On one side of the receiver is a small red LED which is constantly lit when there is no fix or flashing when the GPS receiver has a fix.


There was plenty of cable for me to install it anywhere I wanted in the front of the car. This is not a problem as it is more than enough for accurate navigation.

One of my concerns was security, not that you could see globalwat of cabling or anything outside the car, but a box sitting on the dash looks tempting. An excellent test of all the equipment. Warm starts are pretty fast as well. Throughout the traveling time the only problem I encountered was with Destinator. I use a Brodit Active mount in the car which I thought would be a problem with the GlobalSat connector.


I have mine positioned in the far left corner of my dashboard, right up against the windscreen. Another issue brought to the fore recently has been the performance or failure bd GPS equipment at high temperatures.

We did about 2, miles over 15 days towing glibalsat caravan through France, Belgium. The only slight delay was when we had exited the Gotthard Tunnel going northbound where the GPS did not re-fix for about 45 seconds.

What appeals to me about this setup is that you just get in the car, start the engine, then put the PDA in it’s cradle.

This then means that I have just about all the cables hidden perfectly. Submit A Support Request. Cold Start 48 sec. I managed to tuck the cables away very well as described above. Useability Robustness Overall Rating
