For our testing purposes, F-Tech sent us the retail package that includes:

  • the Solar 7GPS receiver itself
  • an AC power adaptor with USB female plug
  • a cigarette lighter adaptor with USB female plug
  • a mini1394 to USB cable
  • finally a CD-ROM with corresponding software and user's Manual

The current price for the product is around US$100, around the net.

The F-Tech Solar 7 GPS receiver is the largest device of its type that we have reviewed. We would say its almost twice the size of the BT-338.

Comparing it with a Sony Ericsson K750i, it still looks big.

while a credit card looks much smaller :-)

Looking at the bottom, we can find some information about the product, like its S/N and the exact model identification (FGPSBT02)

The battery is rated 1000mAh 3.7V

There are two LEDs, indicating the following conditions:

On the top, we find the charger interface (mini USB), the power on/off switch and the two leds. On the left side, we have the external cable jack (MMCX compatible). Both inputs are protected by a rubber cover.

The package, as we saw earlier includes two chargers, one for AC/DC and one for car. Since the device is USB compatible, it can also be powered by a PC USB port!
