The BU-353 GPS Receiver can be utilized in a variety of applications that require a magnetic mounting with waterproof configuration. With non-slip on the bottom and the compact design, the BU-353 is completely self-contained and waterproof. It incorporates the latest SiRF Star III GPS chipset and an active patch antenna so you receive a high degree of GPS accuracy.

Combining both design and technology into an iF product design award 2006 winning GPS receiver the Globalsat BU-353 integrates the latest SiRFStarIII chipset into a stylish GPS mouse. This results in one of the most sensitive and accurate GPS receivers on the market today.

Typical application can include marine environments, aviation, commercial use such as fire truck, police cars and utility vehicles and buses. The 1.5m long cable allows for easy routing to your PC behind headliners and side panels and terminates to a custom USB connector for interfacing with one of the available cable kits that is purchased separately.
