Look out Garmin, Navman GPS announced today it’s newest addition to the family, Jupiter 30, “an ultra-high sensitivity surface mount GPS receiver designed for rapid position fixes in low signal strength conditions that brings breakthrough acquisition speed to GPS industry” (in English that means this GPS receiver works indoors just as well as outdoors).
Our quick lookie revealed the same form factor and extended software messaging as it’s older brother Jupiter 20, though the newer Jupiter 30 provides a risk free upgrade path for any customer, using an active or passive antenna.
Apparently, Jupiter 30 GPS delivers an unprecedented minus 160 dBM tracking capability, bringing standard GPS functionality to previously impossible locations; such as inside buildings, parking garages, shopping malls and other indoor environments; inner city urban canyons; areas with dense foliage and in vehicles with UV-coated or athermic windshields. Wow!

Sprint spokeman claim that itís not about GPS tracking nor monitoring. Critics though view this as more GPS tracking and monitoring and possible infringements on freedom of privacy. For kids with overprotective parents, perhaps having a cell phone with GPS won’t be so much fun anymore. For parents with a GPS Child Locator, they’ll be able to know the whereabouts of their kids. Sprint becomes the first U.S. wireless provider to sell its own GPS Family Locator (GPS Child Locator) Service which rolls out Thursday.
