The BR-355 GPS Receiver can be utilized in a variety of applications which require GPS signals to be received and decoded in your Windows laptop or tablet PC; and for Mac users, their iBooks or Powerbooks. Compatible with most all NMEA compliant third-party software, the BR-355 is suitable for use in vehicle, marine and aviation navigation, as well as commercial and municipality applications such as fire trucks, police cars, buses, GIS data collection and much more.
The BR-355 has a slim profile housing that is completely waterproof and incorporates an active patch antenna for the highest level of GPS accuracy. It does require either the USB or Serial RS232/PS2 cable set to function (sold seperately).
Placement of the GPS receiver anywhere within the vehicle will usually get sufficient GPS signal reception, but in those rare occurrences when towering high-rises offer challenging satellite reception, simply place the BR-355 on the roof of the vehicle with its built-in magnet for improved reception.
Since power is transferred through your PC's USB port or the (PS2) keyboard port, depending on which cable set is connected, data is also transmitted to the USB port or the RS232 port depending on which cable set is used.
