    Garmin GLO Portable GPS and GLONASS Receiver Brings High-Integrity GPS Capability to Mobile Devices

    Today we introduced GLO, a portable GPS and GLONASS receiver that brings Garmin’s industry-leading GPS technology to mobile devices.

    “As the first wireless GPS receiver with the ability to receive signals from both the United States’ GPS satellite network and Russia’s GLONASS satellite network, GLO provides the most comprehensive satellite coverage available,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Whether you’re driving through an urban canyon or flying an airplane at any altitude, GLO ensures that your mobile device maintains a strong, reliable GPS signal.”

    GLO wirelessly connects to compatible Apple® and Android™ devices via Bluetooth. It offers a 12 hour battery life and a position update rate of up to 10 times per second (update rate may be limited by the host device). This is 10 times faster than the internal GPS receivers of most mobile devices.

    GLO will be available in August for $99. GLO for Aviation is available today for $129
    Another option for wifi tablet users... or smartphone users who want even better GPS data for their phone... connect to your wifi iPad with bluetooth... or your iPhone to soup-up your phone's GPS capabilities.
