Maine,USA, 21 March, 2007: DeLorme, the company that provides GPS for laptops and PDAs, has now introduced the Earthmate® GPS BT-20, a uniquely versatile solution for deploying GPS navigation on either Bluetooth-enabled PDAs and touch-screen phones, and on USB laptop PCs.
“The Earthmate GPS BT-20 provides the broadest spectrum of hardware-GPS compatibility on the market,” said DeLorme Marketing Director Caleb Mason. “It supports both Palm OS and Windows Mobile devices, and laptop PCs with or without Bluetooth. Even if you have a Bluetooth-enabled laptop, there are still going to be times when you’d prefer a USB connection. The Earthmate GPS BT-20 gives you that flexibility.”
The Earthmate GPS BT-20 features cutting-edge GPS technologies from STMicroelectronics and DeLorme, with fast satellite acquisition times and superior performance when dealing with reflected GPS signals—a frequent occurrence in urban settings.
The receiver comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that holds an 8-hour charge. A/C and 12-volt chargers are included. The receiver can be used in-vehicle while charging, via either USB or Bluetooth connection.
