If you're anything like me, you'll enjoy that sigh of relief after spending a couple of hundred of dollars in gadgetry and finding that it actually works.
On Friday I received my iBlue PS-737 GPS Receiver
, hoping that it would work with CoPilot 6 which I have installed on my trusty iMate JasJam
. Setup was easy, just made sure that Bluetooth was switched on, paired the iBlue PS-737 GPS receiver
, then also paired it up inside the CoPilot 6 app on my Jasjam. In no time, with the aid of the satellites in the heavens, it was telling me to head straight then turn left with the route set to "home".
Some personal comments about the iBlue PS-737 GPS receiver
: it's tiny so less likely to be noticed by passing-by-car-thieves, takes a Nokia mobile phone battery, power efficient and considerably cheaper than GPS receivers with the same attributes.
For anyone contemplating a GPS solution for their JasJam or Dopod 838 (same machines) I can personally say that the Travroute CoPilot 6
and iBlue PS-737 GPS receiver
make a great combo.
For those who want a slighter cheaper solution, Darrell in the office is using Route 66 GPS software
instead of Travroute CoPilot 6 with his iBlue. Says it works really well tool
See you on the roads (without my old clumsy Melway).
