  • Help:Specific Needs in a GPS unit

    Does anyone know of a GPS receiver with the following items:

    Bluetooth (USB LAST RESORT)
    Able to connect to an external antenna (So that the receiver can be hidden)
    No Display (Since this will be connect to a mac in the car)
    Powered by the vehicle (not by lighter but actual wiring to the car)
    12 channels or higher

    MAJOR EDIT.

    I should have said in the begining, but what the hey.
    The GPS Receiver.
    http://www.socketcom.com/product/GP0820-521.asp
    The datasheet.
    http://www.socketcom.com/pdf/gps/BTGPS_datasheet.pdf
    The antenna with power connector.

    It's only about $300.00 (Where is the jaw dropping icon, that would be appropriate as well [/)

    Enjoy.

      As I said USB can be used as a last resort. But it must be wired to the car for power (unless if I have to go with USB and it can be power via the usb bus) and have an external port antenna. What type of OEM solutions are you referring to? The ones with the built in display?

        Nope. Do a search on th eforums for OEM GPS, and you will see what I mean. However, check my post. I MAJORLY edited it.

            Ok I did the search and OEM GPS resulted in cars that come with gps? Is this what you are getting at? The vehicle that I will be getting 2006 Mercury Mariner does not have Navigation as an option.

                    That will work for you. An OEM system with external antenna will run you about 150. Not bad considering a USB version runs about 100.00 to 120.00.

                      Sorry for being a PITA. I have a Magellan Sportrak now (POS) and didn't realize there was now OEM GPS. I thank you for your help and patience!

                        No Worries. I would just suggest you read all the FAQs on the board (I believe there is one for GPS) and search allot.
