For our testing purposes, Globalsat sent us the retail package that includes:
- the BT-359 GPS receiver itself
- a mini USB cable (for charging via USB interface)
- a cigarette lighter adaptor with USB interface
- and finally a CD-ROM with corresponding software and user's Manual
The current price for the product has not yet been announced, and it will be a while yet until the product hits the store shelves.
The BT-359S is significantly smaller than the BT-338 and much more eye catching:
The battery can be accessed easily by removing the plastic back plate. It is rated at 3.7V with 1300mAh capacity:
The only available jack is the USB power port, located at the right of the device.
Under the battery, we find a label with various information such as the device S/N, certifications, handling instructions. Note our device's #SN, 1 ;-)
The external dimensions are 82.0 mm x 41.0 mm x 13.4 mm with a weight of <70gr, making it truly portable. On the front, there are three LEDs showing the status of the GPS, Bluetooth and Battery.
