Compact Flash GPS receiver
Compact Flash GPS card for the Zaurus The Billionton CF-GPS card is one of the smallest GPS receiver available on the market. The card looks very robust and is filled with high tech. Battery power consumption is low with 160mA and only 20mA in stand-by mode.

Compact Flash GPS card for the Zaurus In the box: GPS card, external active antenna with appr. 2,5m cable and a driver CD. The CD is only needed if the card is to be used in a PC. The Zaurus accepts the card without installing any drivers first.

You need GPS-software to use this card with your Zaurus. Links to appropriate software is listed in the "Informations" box.

If you have installed the card and some software on your Zaurus and are wondering (like we did) why there's no position or satellites displayed, you should go out in the open. Concrete is a fine shield and you'll have not much luck with testing inside a building.

During our tests the Billionton GPS card was pretty precise and fast in position updates. The power consumption is acceptable and the ease-of-use for this card is perfect. We were also very satisfied with the external antenna and the long cable that is already bundled in the box.
