Add accurate GPS reception to your laptop or other device
Going mobile with your laptop, ham radio, or other device? If it's got a 9-pin serial connector, the Garmin GPS 18x PC receiver can supply precise location data along the way. This compact waterproof receiver features a 12-volt power supply that plugs into your vehicle's cigarette lighter or power port, and a DB-9 connector that plugs into your device. The GPS 18x PC outputs its positioning data in the industry-standard NIMEA 0183 format, as well as a proprietary Garmin format that can be used in conjunction with optional Garmin software (available only for Windows® computers). It logs one report per second of your precise location, for reliable tracking and informational purposes.
Despite its small size, the GPS 18x PC features powerful receptors that lock onto satellite signals and hold on for dear life. The 2-meter power cable gives you plenty of flexibility for installation. It's a great companion for outdoor types, surveyors, and amateur radio enthusiasts who demand real-time positioning and logging they can count on.
