Magellan Systems Corporation, Monrovia, Calif., recently unveiled three products that make use of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology.
The GPS NAV 1000, made specifically for marine application, provides an advantage over some other receivers with its portability. The unit can be mounted in a quickrelease bracket, where it will provide continuous navigation data while connected to ship's power, or it can be carried in hand. It weighs only 30 ounces, including the six AA batteries, and is designed to be rugged, waterproof, and floatable.
The GPS NAV 1000 is easy to use, and the user can even customize the information displays to read in the appropriate unit of measure. If the GPS NAV 1000 encounters a gap in satellite service—that is, if it does not receive three clear signals— then it has the capability to use dead reckoning based on the last satellite fix.
The NAV 1000 PRO uses the same technology, but is basically made for use on land. The accessory kit comes with adapter hardware for a range pole or tripod mount. The NAV 1000 PRO also has an RS-232 port for computer interfacing.
The GPS Receiver Boardset is available to manufacturers interested in incorporating Magellan's GPS receiver technology into their products. A variety of electrical interfaces and software modules are available to adapt the boardset to specific needs.
