'[OT] Cheap GPS revisited'
1999\08\13@184651 by Henry Carl Ott

picon face

 I Just stumbled onto this site.
 I know there was a lot of interest in the cheap gps boards that were
briefly available from BG-micro, and I thought that this might be of
interest to anybody who missed out.
 I have not ordered any, and I don't know stock status or have any other
information on using these modules.
 These do not seem to be the same units, but they are cheap and it might
be worth it to some people, if only  for the antennas.

 Happy hunting....

This is a JRC CCA-285 gps module.

I have 60 of the new CCA-291 units with full sheilding.

$20 US for all 3 pieces is definetly a deal!  I wonder if
they are rollover fixed though?

Do  you feel these modules can be made to work?  The docs sure seem to
indicate so.

Sorry to bother you with minutia, but who is JRC?  And what is the regular
price for their units (with and without antenna??)

I conacted Mavin about the week number roll over, who replied

Hi Adam,

The feedback, we have gotten from users, is that it shouldn't be a problem, you
just need to recycle the power to reset, and restart the counter.  By recycle, I
mean remove all power completely...

Hope it helped..

Do these units have a 1pps output or a place one
the board where it could be picked up?

JRC is Japan Radio Corporation.

New JRC builds electronic components and JRC builds HAM radios,
radars, sonars, etc.

The JLR702A, the micro gps, normally sells for about $150 US, but
the antenna is integrated, and cables are extra.  I am selling them
for $100 CAN with the cables.

For the CCA-291 units, I don't know the regular price for them.  I'd
say they probably go for $50 US in large quantities.  I've got 60 of
the receivers for sale for $50 CAN each, but no antennas.

The Mavin ones are about $30 CAN and they come with antennas. They are
the older CCA-285 model though.

Can you tell me about the JLR702A?  do you currently have any for sale?  I
am in Burlingtion, Ontario.
Is the product NEMA compatible?
