The GPS 35 TracPak design utilizes the latest technology and high-level circuit integration to achieve superior performance while minimizing space and power requirements. Utilizing Garmin's own proprietary chipset, all critical components of the system including the RF/IF receiver hardware and the digital baseband are designed and manufactured by Garmin to ensure outstanding quality and capability.
The GPS 35 TracPak is housed in a black, water-resistant case and designed to withstand rugged operating conditions. While the GPS 35 TracPak is designed as a "plug 'n play" GPS solution, the minimum system must provide a source of power and a clear view of the GPS satellites.
The system may communicate with the GPS 35 via two RS-232 compatible bi-directional communication channels. Internal memory backup allows the GPS 35 to retain critical data such as satellite orbital parameters, last position, date, and time.
The GPS 35 LVS includes attached 10-foot power/data cable with bare wire ends. Accepts power from unregulated low voltage power supplies between 3.6 and 6 VDC. Asynchronous serial data interfaces via 2 serial ports with true RS-232 voltage level outputs.
