How Does It Work?
The portable GPS and battery cradle works with all iPod touch 1G, 2G, and 3G models. The GPS receiver provides location information to most any GPS-aware app available in the App Store.*
The high-sensitivity GPS receiver is built directly into the cradle (not the windshield mount), giving you GPS capabilities on the iPod touch wherever you go. The GPS receiver provides location information to most any GPS-aware app that requests it, enabling dozens of new uses on the iPod touch.
The cradle's rechargeable battery can power the GPS receiver for approximately 10 hours of continual operation. You can also use the battery to recharge the iPod, doubling the life of the iPod battery. Charge the cradle's battery via your car's cigarette lighter or the USB port on your computer.
Navigation on iPod touch*
The GPS receiver will work with most any car and boat navigation app available in the App Store, including apps from TomTom, Magellan, and Navigon. A built-in amplified speaker loudly delivers navigation voice prompts. When in a car, you can also easily connect the cradle to your car stereo and play your music and navigation voice prompts through your car speakers.
Secure Docking for Car or Boat
The included windshield mount securely docks the cradle with the iPod and attaches it to the windshield for easy viewing and access. The mount is fully adjustable, including portrait and landscape positions. It has a built-in DC power jack for charging the cradle's battery from the car's cigarette lighter, as well as a 3.5-mm audio out to connect to a car stereo. Ideal for use with car navigation apps as well as marine chart plotter apps.
Easy Charging and Syncing
The cradle features a mini USB port for charging the rechargeable battery and syncing the iPod without having to remove the cradle. Mini USB to USB cable is included.
Apps not included. The cradle works with most apps that are available for the iPod touch and do not require a network connection. Navigation apps must have built-in maps. The XGPS251 model does not work with the Dual NavAtlas app. Please visit GPSCradle.dualav.com for more information and to review a list of tested apps.
