So yesterday I found myself busting out my Garmin GPS for my car. Then I thought to myself why hasn’t Anker made a portable gps unit for vehicle use yet?! They are the perfect company to make a gps unit. They already make killer portable batteries, their speakers are of good quality and their dashcams are highly rated. Why not incorporate all that into a compact footprint and bring to market a portable gps?! The market for portable GPS is still pretty big. I used to use my phone for gps until I realized the moment I lose cellular signal my “gps” function goes with it. So I bought a Garmin with a built in dashcam which does the job for the most part but it just sticks out in a vehicle already full of Anker
How many of you would like to see something like this from Anker in the future?
If they made it have a quick release mount where it snapped into place and charged simultaneously thus also allowing you to take it with you within seconds and lowering theft vulnerabilty how about then? Would that relieve your fear?
Everytime Ive used my phone for GPS and I lose signal. I lose everything navigation related until service is restored. Weird. I still prefer a standalone unit then a phone. To me it is best to have a gps thats a fraction of the price of a flagship phone hanging from the mount with potential to fall and break.
The GPS on my devices is weak and easily blocked by glass sheet metal ect
I would like Anker to make a Bluetooth gps receiver like the one made by DUAL. it would provide extremely accurate positioning and would be useful for flying drones, Marin and aerial navigation and any other situation where you need accurate gps position.
