Halfway there for a first production run!

Today, the number of voters who want a GPS module for their iPhone and/or iTouch has hit 500! This is great and since some people even want more than one module, it is more than half way to those 1000 pieces that are required for a first production run.

I am currently working on finishing up another PCB design which will bring you an even smaller form factor of about 27mm (W) x 19.5mm (D) x 8mm ! (H). This will be a universal module for both the iPhone and the iTouch and it will have a similar dock connector as is present in the iPhone/iTouch so that you can use your standard Apple cables/chargers.

Whether this will be the ultimate production design will be dependent on whether satellite tracking performance is acceptable after I build a prototype. This new prototype is using a chip-antenna instead of a patch antenna and I will have to test if the chip-antenna performs as well.

Stay tuned....

I did buy the Holux slim, but I would probably buy yours also cause it will plug in directly. a bluetooth version would be great, but I asume that is not going to happen anytime soon. can you give an estimate on how much your module will run? Thanks.

When you say...

"will have a similar dock connector as is present in the iPhone/iTouch so that you can use your standard Apple cables/chargers."

...does this mean it will plug into the dock connector and also have another dock connector on the bottom of the unit? In my opinion this would be perfect, so I could still sync my iPod as well as listen to music through the dock.
