OP TONI, I have not paid over $100 for either of the two Bluetooth GPS I have bought. Nor have I bought a battery
. The newer one has a phone battery
and has a 5v charger that I have unbundled and have through a switch supplying power from the roof circuitry in the car, so no wires, no clutter and the powered LED I can see when I need. Heaps better than a wired mouse GPS.
Andrew, I agree that 20, 22, 30 channels are pretty irrelevent but having operative quality information isn't. I am more interested in 12 solid channels of data than getting a maximum of eight that was the case in the past. I know I can get to see what side of the road my car is on rather than one of the roads of a dual carriageway. The more channels of quality data, the more likely hood your position is correct on the GPS.
After all of that, I have now gone integrated and the Bluetooth is superfluous, but not in this discussion.
