This week in GPS — August 3rd, 2013

BHCNav NAVA GPS

Coming to the US?

This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. To get a few of the biggest stories as they break, follow me on Twitter. This week’s lead image shows some handheld GPS receivers from the Chinese company BHCnav, which seems to have some interest in the US market. They say they have US maps, but I haven’t heard back from them as to what type.

    Personally, I can hardly wait to see Garmin’s new Bowling, Treadmill and Stretching GPS devices! The the Billiards GPS looks really cool. 😀
