The XGPS150A by Dual Electronics is a Multipurpose Universal Bluetooth GPS Receiver that is arguably faster than a phone's built-in GPS. It can be paired to a user's phone or tablet via Bluetooth for more accurate use of GPS-requiring apps involving aviation, golfing, geocaching, hiking, and more. The free GPS Status Tool shows user location, the number of satellites the device can see (plus their signal strengths), the receiver's battery level, and connection confirmations. The non-slip pad is useful while in a boat/cockpit, and the included armband comes in handy while outdoors. The USB-chargeable battery lasts up to 8.5 hours and recharges in under 3 hours.
