I just received my globalsat bt and so far the results are looking good. I do need to find an in car stand for my tablet but that will be another review. Staying on the subject of power but moving to the battery. The BT comes with a car and wall adapter to charge the device. There is never quite the ideal solution to this, but GlobalSat have moved closer to it. So just about three weeks in with the Globalsat bluetooth GPS and one long trip under my belt.

If you install the BT with a permanent USB power connection then it will not automatically switch off after 10 minutes of non-activity. Android Apps and Games.

Awesome, I’d like to get one of these. The Bluetooth range is perfect for that. Some of these have seen production others have fallen by the wayside.

It is certainly very convenient as all modern PCs have USB ports and I suppose that it also represents an overall cost saving for the manufacturers as they no longer provide a mains power supply. If the receiver does not detect a connection then it will automatically power itself off after 10 minutes of inactivity. This setup makes for a flexible powering solution. Just wondering if you or anyone knows what all these things are, which one would be the serial pad?

No trouble pairing, won’t connect. Amazingly this didn’t affect the performance of the GlobalSat BT too gssat. The underside of the BT has a removable battery cover which is surrounded by a non-slip rubber ring. The metal boxes covering components are soldered on. Read on and find out To get the GPS data, you can connect a bluetooth-to-serial module, if you have, to Arduino.

The BT handled this better than the BT as you would expect.

Sharing the same technology they differ only in the design of the casing. I bt-3599 have Globalsat BT This changed with the award winning BR and now the new BTW and BTS Bluetooth receivers have had some thought put into gaat design of the outer casing as bt-3559 as the internal electronics However I can get the serial monitor started, then start bluetooth and use, say, GooPs which then stuffs your location into google earth to read the nmea hsat bluetooth, like the device was intended in the first place lawl.

I was wondering if it where possible to disasemble a Globalsat BT Bluetooth GPS, wich uses a bluetooth module to send its gps strings trough the bluetooth protocal SPP serial dataand read the gps string with the arduino.

It is now a bt-39 resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. This seems to be an emerging standard for GPS receivers now.


The route walked was exactly the same, but the BT was somewhat more accurate I was walking up the left side of the street.

I am fortunate gsar that I live in an area where the buildings rarely rise above 2 stories, which is not a good place to test urban canyons. The BT comes with a removable mAh battery which GlobalSat claim gives 11 hours of continuous operation.

The Arduino can read the GPS data from the serial port. As usual the casing just happened to erm accidentally fall open in my hands. The google navigation app worked very well with the combination.

I’m running BackCountry Navigator and Copilot for road navigation. If not, maybe you remember what’s on the other side? Thanks for letting us know!

It obviously will not get a fix in the carpark, but on emerging into the open sometimes it can take 5 minutes or more bg-359 get a fix.
