The CoPilot Live Pocket PC GPS package came with everything in the pic (Bluetooth GPS receiver, mount, power adapter/cable, and software).
The discs were actually double stacked on the same side. We didn't really like the way the disc holder worked. It had a long central stem to hold both discs and we had a little bit of trouble getting them out.
The GPS receiver is about the size of a typical cell phone. The power slider is at the top of the unit, along with the indicators light, power connector, and the external antenna jack.
Since this is a Bluetooth unit, the Pocket PC must also be able to communicate via Bluetooth to work with this GPS. We have a pretty old iPaq (HP 3850 running PocketPC 2001), but after checking around a bit, we decided to see if we can upgrade it to work with this GPS. Based on the listed system requirements, it will take a little work, but we think it is possible.
We couldn't resist opening the unit to take a look at what was inside. We didn't really know what we were looking at once we opened it, but we thought some of our readers may...so here you go.
Clearly the rechargeable battery is on one side and all the electronics is on the other. We would guess that the SiRFstarIII chipset is the stuff in the middle of the gold rectangle. The Bluetooth module appears to be on the other side of the circuit board (right pic). Both of the bright silver sections are probably antennae...one for the Bluetooth module and the other for the GPS.
Most of the newer GPS are now using the SiRFstarIII chipset because of its high performance and small form factor.
We are eager to put this unit to the test. We'll be updating this project over the next few weeks as we try to get this state of the art GPS receiver to work with our discontinued iPaq 3850 PDA :-) It is a perfect RainyDayProject!
