External GPSr with 5Hz

#1 Post by pohkf » Sun Sep 14, 2008 6:36 pm

Just get a External GPSr with 5Hz.

99.9% of GPS units are 1Hz, they update the position only once per second. This unit is 5Hz (5 times per second), meaning it provides accurate, real-time position information compared to other GPS units.

All the time using HTC Touch Diamond with internal GPS, but the result gave me slow respond. So just bought above GPSr with 5Hz.

Hope can give me accurate and real-time position information for my Dopod 838Pro and HTC Touch Diamond.

Yup... I saw it now... good job he did as he responded after my submitted post (Check the times >> my post and his edit). :thumbsup:

I did saw this key-chain item in an earlier recent review but after what brudder MyGis once informed me, for my situation, it doesn't serve my Nuvi nor help in anyway my GMPC with 20x ext. antenna but it sure comes packed with nifty stuffs and that can't be denied, its a "multum in parvo" with this key-chain... :thumbsup:

Could you please share with us why this MTK chip is not good enough and not good enough for what? Why is the SiRF Star III chip better.

Thank you.

So it is a hearsay of hearsays and above all the hearsay of hearsays that you quoted tends to indicate that the MTK is slightly better than the SiRF Star III. I have both GPS units and I had "flown" then off against one another for quite a while and I am still unable to form a definitive conclusion. If any, the MTK seems to be slightly quicker with TTFF than the SiRF Star III on more occasions than the SiRF Star III did against the MTK.

As for the MTK running in 5 Hz it is definitely much more superior to the SiRf Star III at 1 Hz when it comes to instant speed display and accuracy as the resolution is much, much better at 5 Hz. Of course my 10 Hz Performacebox is even more superior in this respect. I am making these statements based on first hand trials not hearsays but I still love both of them as the apart from speed display and track logs, I find it difficult to conclude that one is better than the other when used as a navigation device.
