WAAS
« on: November 19, 2012, 02:53:46 pm »

Does the BT-368 use WAAS?
The FAQ says:
Yes, the device is WAAS enabled by default, that are sold by USGlobalSat, Inc and its Authorized Dealers . Note, receivers with firmware 3.1.1 and above are WAAS enable out of the box.
But it also says:
SiRF StartIII currently does not have WAAS enabled, not that this matters unless you intend on relying on it to operate a plane.

Which is it?
I intend to use this in a plane.

Hello,

Welcome to the forums! If you purchased the BT-368 directly from us or from one of our authorized resellers (http://www.usglobalsat.com/s-5-find-a-store.aspx), the unit is WAAS-enabled. If you did not purchased the device from us or from one our authorized resellers, then, the device is not WAAS-enabled.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you for the fast response.
If purchased from Amazon.com, will it be WAAS-enabled?

To make sure that you have a WAAS-enabled unit, you can try purchasing this device from one of our authorized sellers, called Semsons: http://www.amazon.com/GlobalSat-BT-368i-Bluetooth-GPS-Receiver/dp/B0018YZ836/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&m=A110MBRL8XO94E&qid=1353357711&s=electronics&sr=1-3
