SiRFstarIV version of BU353?
« on: April 04, 2010, 07:49:57 pm »

Hello everyone :)

We all love BU-353, but it has been out since 2005 if my memory still serves me well. I wonder if another GlobalSat BU-3?? with the new SiRFstarIV is on your road map. The same form factor, the same magnetic base, just the new chipset inside. Could you share some info? :)

According to our engineers, there is no SiRFstarIV version of BU353 available at this time. As of now, they are still in the process of developing the said chipset.

USG_TECH10, thanks for looking into it. Much appreciated. GlobalSat was the first one to come out with USB GPS receivers based on the SiRFstarIII five years ago, and I'm sure you guys will also be the first ones to come out with USB GPS units based on the new SiRFstarIV. It's just a matter of time.

Ha ha :-) It's time to update this two year old thread. It seems BU-353 is in fact going to be equipped with the new generation chipset:

SiRF Star IV USB GPS receiver Globalsat BU-353 S4 available soon

Could we get some inside info, ETA, anything? :-)

Based on our website, the BU-353S4 should be available in the first quarter of 2012 (http://www.usglobalsat.com/p-688-bu-353-s4.aspx#images/product/large/688.jpg). Also, please keep checking our website for new announcements.

Thanks! It's been a while since some new and exciting hardware was released. I'll do some side-by-side testing with the old S3 and the new S4 version of BU-353 as soon as I get my hands on the new one.
