About the NavAtlas NAV160 SkyPro™
Augment the GPS capability of your devices
Augment the GPS capability of your devices
When you're on the go over sea or land — or even in the air — the last thing you want is the GPS tracking of your tablet, smartphone, or laptop to fail. And if you've got a Wi-Fi® only tablet or iPod touch®, you don't even have that capability to begin with in most cases. The NAV160 SkyPro GPS receiver from NavAtlas not only boosts the GPS capability and speed of your device without the aid of spotty cell service, it also comes protected in a waterproof housing, so you can take it on the water or into inclement weather without worry.
Robust waterproof case
The NAV160 boasts a clear plastic, IP66-rated housing, which means it's protected totally from dust and resistant to high-pressure water jets. That doesn't make it completely submersible, but it'll keep on ticking if you're out on your boat and a big wave comes splashing through or if you take your ATV through some particularly muddy terrain.
Works with all kinds of devices
The compact NAV160 receiver communicates GPS information to your portable device using Bluetooth. It works with a large variety of portables, including:
- all iOS devices with Bluetooth
- iPhone® 3G and newer
- all iPad® and iPad mini® models
- iPod touches 2nd generation and newer
- plus many other smartphones and tablets
It features a built-in rechargeable battery to stay energized. Once you've done an initial setup with your device, this little receiver pairs up automatically so you can get going without any annoying delays.
A jack of all trades
You can use the NAV160 with apps for navigation, geocaching, aviation, golfing, and more. It can pair with up to five Bluetooth devices using the same platform (iOS or Android™) at the same time, so you can get your co-pilot and crew in on the fun. And if reception from normal GPS satellites ever becomes an issue temporarily, the NAV160 can receive signals from Russia's GLONASS satellite navigation system, which provides accurate location tracking around the world.
GPS Status Tool app
The GPS Status Tool app from Dual plays well with the NAV160 — download the app to your device and you'll be able to check the receiver's status, including the number of satellites the receiver is picking up, the signal strength of each satellite, battery level, and device connection confirmation. The app also lets you control the NAV160's automatic route recording feature, which logs your journey details and lets you export them to other devices for review. The receiver includes a non-skid pad for use in the car, plane, train, or boat. Maximum range is 33 feet, giving you plenty of flexibility for placement.
So "appy" together
Once you're up and running, you can use hundreds of compatible GPS- and location-based apps on your device with confidence, as the NavAtlas receiver dramatically improves GPS accuracy. If you're using a Wi-Fi-only tablet or laptop, this receiver supplies GPS info so you can use navigation apps in your car without having to use 3G or 4G signals. You'll find new and exciting uses for your apps, including those mentioned above as well as marine, running, hiking, cycling, and more. A list of fully tested compatible apps can be found at Dual's website.
Ready for adventure in all kinds of environments
The receiver locates your position anywhere around the world in less than 30 seconds when properly placed, and updates position up to ten times per second. Since you're not using your device's built-in GPS receiver, you'll extend battery life on your device when it's connected to the NAV160. Its battery lasts up to 10 hours on a full charge, and you can conveniently power up with the included USB cable or 12-volt adapter. The receiver's also built to withstand extreme temperatures, rapid speeds, and high altitudes.

Bluetooth has an operating range of approximately 33 feet.

In aircraft with heated windscreens, it is recommended to mount the unit on a side window.
