GPS Receiver

The Garmin GLO™ brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS/GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth® technology so you can enjoy precise position information on your iPad, iPhone or Android device.

The Garmin GLO™ can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone. This allows GLO™ to lock on to satellites approximately 20 percent faster and remain connected even at high speed. What’s more, GLO™ updates its position information at 10 times per second — that’s up to 10 times more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices.

Using Bluetooth technology, GLO™ wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just set GLO™ within range of your mobile device, and in moments you’ll be receiving GLO™’s position data. It has up to 12 hours of battery life to keep your position on long trips, and charging GLO™ between uses is easy with the included USB cable or optional 12/24-volt cigarette lighter adapter. The optional friction mount keeps the receiver safe on your dashboard and in full view of satellites.

A custom holder is available for the GLO™ receiver. The custom holder mounts easily to the vLoc2 series receiver and provides easy access to the GLO™ receiver.
