Wireless GPS Takes Flight
New Sky Products offers Dual Brand XGPS150 – Wirelessly Add GPS to iPad®, iPod touch®, iPhone® and other Bluetooth-enabled Smart Phones and Tablets.
Lafayette, IN (April 20, 2011) – New Sky Products, LLC announced today that the company is expanding its product line to include mobile GPS Solutions with the addition of the Dual Brand XGPS150 Universal Bluetooth GPS Receiver. The product adds GPS capabilities wirelessly via Bluetooth connection to the iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, and to other smart phones, tablets and laptops, which support the Bluetooth SPP.
Kurt Ave, New Sky Products founder, states “We are excited to showcase the Dual Brand XGPS150 as our featured product in our lineup of aviation products. The XGPS150 is the perfect solution for pilots who want to use the full power of the Apple iPad and iPod touch devices in the cockpit. By complementing these devices with the wireless GPS capabilities of the XGPS150, pilots can take full advantage of GPS-enabled aviation apps. What’s more, the Dual Brand XGPS150 opens up a world or possibilities outside the cockpit. For example, it allows these devices to be used with software and apps for car and marine navigation, as a range finder on a golf course, for geocaching, fitness apps, social networking and more.”
The XGPS150 by Dual measures about 2” square x 3/4” thick, has a built-in high-accuracy GPS receiver and a rechargeable battery to power the GPS. Owners of the iPhone and other smart phones will benefit from the GPS’s reliable accuracy, compact design, long battery life and a long, 65-foot (20m) Bluetooth signal range, allowing it to be positioned in a spot with a clear view of the sky.
The built-in GPS receiver is WAAS compatible and delivers location information with +/- 3m (~10 feet) accuracy, which makes it significantly more accurate than the reported GPS accuracy of the iPhone and some smart phones. The rechargeable battery powers the GPS for at least 8.5 hours of continuous use, and recharges via a USB connection within 2.5 hours. The auto power-off feature saves battery when GPS is not in use.
The Bluetooth auto-discovery feature makes it easy to pair the XGPS150 with other devices. The product comes with a non-slip pad, which holds the Dual XGPS150 securely on a car’s dashboard, boat console and other surfaces. An adjustable armband is also included for outdoors and fitness applications. The XGPS150 also comes with a mini USB to USB cable and 12V cigarette lighter adapter.
The XGPS150 is compatible with all iPad®, iPod touch® and iPhone® devices with OS3.1 or above and with other smart phones, tablets and laptops which support Bluetooth® SPP (Serial Port Profile). The product will be available at retail in early 2011 at an estimated MSRP of $99.99.
