4 Star Review   By member Alvmaia - Feb 20, 2008   

Strengths: Small, locks a fix very fast.

Weakness: None at this moment.

This a very nice portable GPS. It works great with my Palm T|X and my Blackberry Pearl cellular phone (with Google Maps). Is is also very practical because of its tiny size. I was also impressed how fast it locks a fix position from satellites.

Tiny GPS receiver
5 Star Review   By member qqqcj - Feb 16, 2008   

Strengths: Size is extremely small. Bluetooth connectivity is excellent. The best part is the USB connection which is quite rare for tiny GPS receivers.

Weakness: Battery life is not long enough but what you can expect for such small receiver. Of course using USB cable can solve the problem.

I am very happy with this receiver. We are using the GPS for applications where weight matters very much. This tiny receiver fits our needs very well. The additional USB connection is really a PLUS, which is really convenient for us.

5 Star Review   By member Attritor27 - Jul 10, 2007   

Strengths: Works great. Compact, stylish, and good battery life.

Weakness: None found so far.

The GPSlim 240 Bluetooth GPS Receiver is a great device. I've been using it for approximately 2 months with my Blackberry Curve. The device paired easily with my phone and works flawlessly. I love the compact form factor, the stylish good looks, and the excellent battery life. So far I have found nothing to complain about the GPSlim 240. I would highly recommend that you consider the GPSlim 240 if you are looking at bluetooth GPS receivers.

3 Star Review     

Strengths: Quick satellite acquisition; tiny and light in size

Weakness: Non-replaceable battery

All in all a very small package that yields lightning quick satellite acquisition times. Bluetooth pairing was a breeze. However, I have not been successful in using the USB cable to hard-connect to a laptop instead of using the bluetooth connection; not sure if that is possible.

5 Star Review   By member fiero11 - Jun 27, 2007   

Strengths: Small convienent size. Easily mates up to bluetooth devices. Holds charge as stated or better. Excellent satellite reception.

Weakness: No weakness noted except possile life expectancy of the Lithium-ion internal battery.

Device was extremely easy to set up with my Blackjack cellular phone and provides very accurate and fast aquisition to the stellites (less than 30 seconds). I am extremely pleased with the units performance and would highly recommend it for its performance and price.

Takes some time to lock onto satellite signal.
2 Star Review   By member Elrond - Jun 13, 2007   

Strengths: Very small. When it works, it works well.

Weakness: Tempermental.

I've been using this blue tooth GPS receiver with my Palm Treo 700 and TomTom Navigator 6. It can take anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes to find a GPS signal. Sometimes it doesn't lock on at all. Overall, I am not very pleased with this device.

great gps
5 Star Review   By member shadowkwarrior - May 24, 2007   

Strengths: compact, quick, sensitive

Weakness: short battery life?

This is my first gps, so I don't have anything to compare it with. However, it seems fairly accurate, quick enough when using with a Palm T|X, does not lose bluetooth signal, but does lose gps signal when going under highways. Signal acquisition is fast, but needs to be stationary for for a while. Otherwise, it may never acquire a signal. Battery life is good for the size, but it does not get a full 8 hours, it is more like ~6, slightly over 7 if lucky. This is really not that bad, considering it includes a car charger. Overall, a great gps, and I am very satisfied with it.

5 Star Review   By member zhisc - May 23, 2007   

Strengths: Sensitive, fast acqisition, long batery life

This is a great device. The sensor is very sensitive. I usually leave the receiver in my glove box, it works perfectly fine. Can't be more happy with it. I own a Treo700. With built-in BlueTooth, the receiver gets recognized by my Treo in seconds. The GPS data transfer has been very smooth. Usually it takes the device only 15-60 seconds to acquire satellites, which is pretty impressive.

compact size, great price
4 Star Review   By member cskowronski - May 23, 2007   

Strengths: Blue Tooth, short aquisition time, slim design

Weakness: Sometimes it takes much longer then usual to acquire the satellite.

I have owned this device for over a month. The experience is so far so good. I love the compact design. This device fits easily in my pocket. Acquisition time is relatively short. However, sometimes at the same spot, it takes the device much longer than usual to acquire a satellite, even though the sky is clear...I don't know what caused this. Otherwise, this is a great GPS receiver.

Holux GPSlim 240
5 Star Review   By member Prathiraj - May 20, 2007   

Strengths: Small, SiRF III, position fix is faster

Weakness: only 7 hrs battery life

Pairing was easy and it fixed the position in about less than a minute when switched on for the first time. Subsequent fix were faster about 20-30 seconds. It is small and you can easily carry, but at the same time you can misplace it too. I recommend to hook a lanyard! I use it with a Windows Mobile smartphone and pairing is easy. The step to create an outgoing COM port is missing in the guide but if you search around the net, you'll find it.

I've used this GPS for about 2 weeks now and it works very well for such a small package. It pairs with my devices just fine and is small enough to fit anywhere.

Holux GPS
4 Star Review   By member dporsche - Dec 20, 2006   

Strengths: Strong signal

Weakness: Connection gets lost

This gps unit is very impressive and accurate. The gps signal get locked on quick even during cloudy weather and stays locked on when you go into an underpass or tunnel. My only concern is that the bluetooth conection gets lost from time to time which is very inconvenient because I have to stop and connect it again to my computer. Other than that its great.
