The Garmin GLO Wireless GPS Receiver lets you navigate with Garmin-caliber GPS data on the mobile device of your choice. The Garmin GLO GPS Receiver combines the high technology of Garmin GPS/GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth technology, so you can enjoy precise position information on your iPad, iPhone or Android device. The Garmin GLO Receiver can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone. This allows the Garmin GLO to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and remain connected even at high speed. What's more, GLO updates its position information at 10x per second - that's up to 10x more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices.
Using Bluetooth technology, the Garmin GLO GPS Receiver wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just set GLO within range of your mobile device and in moments you'll be receiving GLO's position data. The device features up to 12 hours of battery life to keep your position on even the longest trips, and charging GLO between uses is a cinch with the included USB cable or and optional 12/24 Volt cigarette lighter adapter. Garmin's optional friction mount keeps the Garmin GLO GPS Receiver safe on your dash and in full view of satellites.
