Evermore BT-R900

1. Introduction

Evermore is a Taiwaneze manufacturer that produces quality GPS products for all categories of users. SiRF III devices are well known to users for their good reception as well as good overall performance. We had the chance to test the BT-R900, a SiRF III enabled BT GPS device, and compare it with other similar devices. First off, let's see some background information about Evermore.

- Evermore background

Evermore was founded in 1998. Head-quartered at Taiyuan Science Park, Hsinchu, TAIWAN, the company mainly concentrates on GPS related technology "...EverMore identify itself not just a follower but a customer-oriented leader. We can meet customer’s requests and changes in the short time by our strong innovation ability and dynamic support teams.

- Evermore BT-R900

The Evermore BT-R900 is a high performance Bluetooth GPS receiver that is both compact and portable. With the BT-R900, you can now add full GPS navigation capabilities to your PDA, smart phone or laptop at minimal cost while enjoying performance that rivals dedicated GPS navigators. By employing the SiRFstarIII chipset, users will enjoy unsurpassed positioning accuracy and performance.

Powered by Li-ion rechargeable batteries with an impressive battery life, the BT-R900 is as easy to carry around as your mobile phone. Date transmission and connections via Bluetooth eliminate any need for wires, and the Bluetooth transmitter allows GPS data to be transmitted to your PDA, smart phone or any other Bluetooth enabled device within 10 meters. The high-sensitivity GPS receiver will pick up the weakest of signals, allowing you to place it anywhere without compromise, and enabling you to begin navigation immediately with the very fast Time-To-First-Fix.
