Product Description

The Universal Bluetooth GPS Receiver is very simple to use. There is a quick set up process that includes pairing your device with the Receiver. Once this is done, the Receiver will automatically connect to the device it was last paired with, and you will be able to use it with hundreds of apps that require location information. The GPS Receiver includes a non-slip pad for use in a cockpit, car or a boat. The non-slip pad will stick securely to most surfaces, including vertical walls and windows. The Universal Bluetooth GPS Receiver is not waterproof, but it will withstand light splashes when it is seated properly in the non-slip pad.

I just used the Dual XGPS150 on a recent trip, and found that it worked very well indeed. The only issue I have encountered is potential incompatibility with specific applications that, by the express intent of the provider of the application, are not compatible with external GPS receivers. This is the sort of thing that many people would not anticipate, because it is counter to common sense, but it is real. I recommend that prior to purchasing any external GPS receiver, that you start by identifying the particular application that you expect to use, and that you confirm with the supplier of that application that the application is compatible with external GPS receivers. I'll discuss this further in a bit.

I did not encounter any issues with the Bluetooth connection between the iPad2 WiFi and the Dual XGPS150a. The XGPS150a did not exhibit any problems with maintaining continuity of satellite reception or continuity of its knowing its precise location. It was highly accurate. I am particularly pleased with how quickly it figures out its location after having been powered off for a while. It does this within just a few seconds, which is a small fraction of the time that my high-end Garmin Nuvi needs to figure out where it is.

There is a competing device that hangs directly from the docking port, and I just think that this is a very dumb idea. Yeah, there is nothing about the docking port that prevents this sort of thing, but it is suitable only for cables and cradles. Nothing should be attached there in the way that that thing does. It is only a question of when, not whether, you snap it off, ruining the accessory at least and possibly even damaging the port on the iPad or iPhone, which I expect would be a costly repair.

Just wanted to let folks know that this product does indeed work with the newest iPad, the one that came out (in the USA) in March, 2012.

I have a wifi-only iPad version, and the Dual Electronics works great with it.

This device pairs easily and quickly with the iPad. It also has great battery life.

The Dual Electronics device works with my iPad's navigation software. In specific, a Navigon North America navigation application. (Its great having a huge screen to view your map - the screen of the iPhone just can't compare and nor can dedicated GPS devices.)

I downloaded the free app "Dual GPS Status Tool" onto my iPad and it gives all sorts of detailed information about the GPS device (e.g., battery life) as well as about the satellites to which its connected.

To test the Dual Electronics device, I drove my 52 mile-roundtrip daily commute in the Washington, DC area. During these drives, the Dual Electronics device had no problems maintaining a connection to the satellites, to my iPad, and as a result the Navigon app on the iPad worked great.

Its great not to have to worry about holding the iPad a certain way in order to get GPS - this external GPS always sits on your dash.

I use, in addition to this Dual Electronics device, the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 3G Mobile WiFi Hotspot Modem, Refurbished (Verizon Wireless) so that I can connect the iPad to the internet and get the latest traffic reports while using the Navigon app.

I fly a Boeing 777 for an Asian carrier. I've brought at least ten of these DUAL 150 / 150A units back from the USA for other local pilots. The units purchased a year or two ago work ok most of the time - maybe 75% of the time as long as the flight level is FL 350 or lower. None of the 150A units will lock on or function at or above FL 370. If you are willing to move the 150A out of the cockpit and can find an available passenger window you have a good chance that the unit will work about 50% of the time if you are below FL 350.

Recently, over the last several months I've purchased five more of the 150A units and not one of them will work in the cockpit of a jet / 777. All of these non functional units have firmware version 1.0.34 which is an older version of the firmware. Apparently, Amazon is closing out this model and the 150A units now being sold are from old stock and being discounted. Units purchased a few months ago have firmware version 1.3.2 which does work in the 777. The DUAL website offers a firmware version upgrade to ver 1.2.6, and I did make the firmware upgrade offered but this version also will not work in an airplane at high altitude and speed. For some inexplicable reason DUAL will not supply the latest firmware 1.3.2 - probably because the older units I bought a month ago won't accept that new firmware.

The older DUAL 150 units (not 150A) had a decent battery life of six or seven hours, the new units I received have a battery that lasts three to four hours. More indication that the Amazon supplier is dumping old stock. Be careful!

This unit will not even lock on when behind any window of my home, even on a clear day with a 180 degree view of the southern sky.
