First SD GPS receiver with pocket PC 2003 drivers for the i730.

Stellus System, Inc., a leading system integrator of wireless communication products, announced that their StarNetTM GPS SDIO receiver – a high-performance, rugged GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver with a SDIO (Secure Digital Input/Output) interface is now compatible with the Samsung i730 Smartphone. Simply plug in the StarNet GPS receiver into your i730 and you can use it for in-car navigation, recreation, surveying or other location-specific information applications.

“The i730 Smartphone is growing rapidly in popularity because Verizon Wireless is offering it, and because of its unique design and technology features,” said Craig Conkling, CEO of Stellus Systems. “The i730 has Wi-Fi connectivity as well as cellular, and together with Stellus’ StarNet SD GPS receiver, can promotes additional location-based services such as location-specific traffic or weather and other information,” he added.

StarNet is a GPS accessory that puts navigation and find-and-locate capabilities for home or business addresses, ATMs, restaurants and recreational activities (such as golf, boating and hiking), at your fingertips – a map-in-your-hand that helps you get where you’re going. The Pocket PC handheld market is expanding its market share, and with the growing use of Smartphones, Stellus’ StarNet SD GPS receiver is poised to enable additional functionality and services.

Stellus’ innovative design combines a high-performance GPS antenna and receiver, with a SDIO interface IC (integrated circuit), in a compact housing that fits in your brief case or pocket and weighs less than one ounce. StarNet consumes less than 200 mW in tracking mode and has an accuracy of 3 meters (CEP – 50% of the time) and 6 meters (2DRMS – 95% of the time).
