Columbus V-700

Until the day rolls around when mobile devices of all kinds have GPS technology built in, external and add-on GPS receivers are the only options.  A Chinese company by the name of Fuzhou Victory Technology (FVT) has introduced a diminutive GPS receiver called the Columbus V-700.  Weighing only 33 grams and with dimensions of 53.5mm high, 32mm wide and 13.9mm deep (2.1"H X 1.25"W X 0.55"D), the V-700 is extremely tiny and fits just about anywhere.  The Columbus is Bluetooth Class 2 compliant, includes a Li-Polymer battery of unspecified runtime and uses the popular SiRF Star III chipset.  Offering WAAS, the V-700 is accurate to within 1.5 meters and is capable of connecting to as many as 20 satellites.  More details and a few reviews of the Columbus V-700 are available on FTV’s website, provided you can read Chinese.

The V-700 is listed at $199 USD provided you can find someone selling the little bugger.
