F-tech Solar 7 Solar Bluetooth GPS Receiver
F-tech Corporation of Taiwan is launching a new GPS receiver that has integrated Bluetooth and a Solar Panel to make it an obvious choice for those who slap a GPS receiver on the dash of a plane or automobile.
The non-slip backing will make it right at home on the dash. The solar panel helps prolong the life of the batteries, but does not take the place of battery power. Still, the manufacturer claims that the battery life can be extended to 30 hours with the use of the solar panel. The folks over at DigitalReviews.com have put it through its paces in the car and in a plane. Their conclusion was:
My slogan in life is: Happiness is No Wires. Bluetooth is great for that. Integrated solar panels even more so. The Solar 7 delivers on both fronts with a sensitivity that is state of the art. Priced at around USD150 to USD170 I predict a bright future for f-tech Corporations latest offspring.
