Turn your laptop PC into a powerful street navigator with the GPS 18 - a GPS sensor bundled with nRoute and City Navigator software that automatically guides you with turn-by-turn directions and voice prompts to get you safely to your destination.
Similar to Garmin's MapSource software, nRoute features an easy-to-use interface, making it intuitive to operate so you can focus on driving. It offers auto-routing and voice-prompting capabilities to virtually any address.
The GPS 18 package also includes City Navigator North America map data with detailed maps of the United States and select cities in Canada. This data is fully unlocked, and map detail includes highways, interstates, business and residential roads, with turn restrictions, speed categories, and other navigation features. It also features more than five million points of interest including restaurants, lodging, attractions, shopping, emergency services, post offices, and more.
The GPS 18 includes a 12 parallel channel, WAAS-enabled sensor, available with either a PC or USB connection. The receiver includes an integrated magnetic base and is less than three inches in diameter.
Traveling with your laptop on business or vacation? The GPS 18 is a simple, convenient, inexpensive way to turn your PC laptop into a personal navigator to get you where you're going.
Features and Tips
|Here is a listing we have put together of some of the common |
GPS 18 USB Deluxe features,
along with a few user tips that you may find of help for this particular item.
• WAAS-enabled; 12 parallel channel GPS receiver
• Weight: 100.4 g
• Size: 61mm dia. x 19.5mm height
• USB 2.0 full-speed interface (also compatible with USB 1.1 Full Speed hosts)
• Powered through the computer's USB port
Very Important Note:
The OEM 18 GPS Series all require different input voltages (see list below):
• 18 USB: 4.4 - 5.5 Vdc
• 18 PC: 8 - 30* Vdc (Automotive supply from cigarette lighter jack)
• 18 LVC: 4.0 - 5.5 Vdc
* It should be noted that the OEM 18 PC unit has a cigarette lighter adapter end that converts the 12V DC (from the cigarette lighter power source) to the input voltage required by the GPS unit. If you remove the cigarette lighter end and then hard wire the GPS to the 12V power source, you WILL burn out the unit.
To review the Garmin OEM 18 Series units, take a look at the Garmin GPS 18 Specifications Page.
USB Drivers for Garmin Software:
To use the Garmin GPS 18 with Garmin MapSource Software, you require the Garmin USB driver. You can download it from the Garmin Updates and Downloads Page. You will also need the compatible mapping programs from Garmin. For use on your PC you will need mobile PC or enRoute with a copy of compatible garmin mapping such as City Navigator North America NT. Please note that the software needs to be unlock to the GPS unit before it will work.
USB Drivers for Non-Garmin Software:
To use the Garmin GPS 18 with Non Garmin Mapping Software (Third Party), you require the Garmin Spanner USB driver. You can download it from the Garmin Updates and Downloads Page.
