Garmin Portable GPS Receiver
Navigate with Garmin caliber GPS data on the mobile device of your choice. The Garmin GLO™ 2 BlueTooth GPS Receiver brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS and GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth® wireless technology so you can enjoy precise position information on your iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device. Great for iPads that do not have a built-in GPS receiver, or if you are looking for a more accurate and reliable GPS receiver than the stock receiver in your phone or tablet.
The Accuracy of GPS and GLONASS
The Garmin GLO™ 2 BlueTooth GPS Receiver can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone. This allows GLO 2 to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and remain connected even at high speed. What’s more, GLO 2 updates its position information at 10 times per second; that’s up to 10 times more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices.
Set It up and Go
Using Bluetooth technology, the GLO 2 receiver wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just set GLO 2 within range of your mobile device, and in moments, you’ll be receiving the GLO 2 receiver’s position data. It has up to 13 hours of battery life to keep your position on long trips, and charging GLO 2 between uses is easy with the included USB cable or optional 12/24 V vehicle power cable. The optional friction mount keeps the receiver safe on your dashboard and in full view of satellites.
