The GPS receiver is powered either by your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, or over USB from your computer or wall charger.
How do we differ from the competition?
Emprum's UltiMate GPS provides a real 5Hz location update rate for app store apps. The competition may claim a 5 or 10Hz update rate, but only works at 1Hz with app store apps. The UltiMate GPS also uses a dependable and proven GPS engine that is known for its high accuracy and fast lock times.
The receiver comes with the free UltiMate GPS App available on the App Store with which you can fully control your receiver, including its LED indicators. The UltiMate GPS App provides compass and satellite views, satellite signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), firmware updates and more.
Visit the Emprum website for full product and user manuals for the UltiMate GPS receiver and the UltiMate GPS App, and for drivers for your PC.
This receiver is enabled to use AGPS data (available from the UltiMate GPS App) for even faster cold start lock times down to 15secs. The receiver is designed around a well-proven MTK chipset that has 51 satellite tracking channels and that is DGPS enabled (SBAS, WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS) and the receiver retains most recent satellite data after power-off.
The included USB cable with quick-connect button is custom designed by Emprum and allows for a full 2.1A charging current (which is e.g. required for your iPad).
This receiver works on all iPod touch models (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation), all iPhone models (iPhone,iPhone 3G and 3Gs,iPhone 4 and 4S) and all iPad models (iPad,iPad 2,iPad 3) as well as your PC.
Note: This receiver does not provide internet or WiFi access and is best used with applications that do not require a continuous internet connection.
