The Spectec SDG-810 GPS Receiver Unboxed

After all of the excitement caused by my December 23rd post, it was almost anti-climatic to receive the Spectec SDG-810 SDIO GPS Module today.

Almost! 😉

Included in the box are the driver disk, the module and a nifty plastic case.

The module comes with a 128MB microSD.

And I think that it looks pretty odd hanging out of my Treo 700wx. 😉

When the GPS module is installed and the PDA is turned on, an LED indicates that it is operational.

Nope, it doesn’t look any smaller on the HTC Universal. It’s okay though…an all-in-one GPS device may be worth the worry of a 2″ protrusion.

Or is it?

I’m sending this one to Chris; he can tell us more once he’s had a chance to put it through its paces. 🙂

Still no word on pricing, though…

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
