For our tests, Globalsat provided us with the BTA-806 retail package, that came as part of Globalsat's Entertainment Pack (BTA-806, BTH-820 and BTA-830). The retail package for the BTA-806 is very small and includes the BT Dongle itself, a CD with drivers and a printed manual.

The BT dongle is very small, so small in fact, that you need to be especially careful not to lose it ;-)
