What are people saying about the Dual Electronics Universal Bluetooth GPS

Ratings are average of 4.4 out of 5 stars with over 109 consumers reviews as well as nu-calculated number of people responding to the reviews with 'helpfulness' responses.

Overall reviews are favorable for most uses. The primary disfavored use is in aviation as the altitude readings are less than accurate and have time delays (which could means disaster when flying).

However there are many reviews by pilots who are giving this item 5 stars. The primary factor in those high ranking reviews is iPad 2 (so for aviation we recommend (based on customer review) is used with iPad 2 and the highest rated aviation apps


The following will quote the most prominent reviews by consumers

  • "Turns iPod Touch into a full GPS (5 stars)
  • "iPod Touch becomes an extremely capable GPS receiver with high quality mapping (Scenic Map app) "
  • "Works great with WiFi only Apple iPad for apps like Harry's Lap Timer for amateur racing"
  • use the XGPS 150 in conjunction with the Jeppesen Jepp FD app on Ipad2's (5 stars)
  • Works perfect with built-in Google Maps and with Tom Tom for iPad (5 stars)
  • CON "problem with windows 7 -- works good with "i" devices but not with windows 7 wifi because could not find apps compatible with both the XGPS150 and Windows 7
  • "Excellent battery life (about 10 hours) and recommend using an app that shows battery life and available satellites"

If you are going to use this for aviation you will want to find the best apps and use this with Apple iPad2

Be sure to 'pair' the XGPS150 with the device you want to use it with (follow the instructions) and find the app you want to use. The XGPS150 may not work at all without a Bluetooth device and an application (which you should be able to download from the app store)
