Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS Receiver Data Logger Announced

b_240_240_16777215_00_digitalreviews_images_news_2007_gosget.jpgAnother day, another GPS receiver manufacturer, rebrander, it seems.

Ever heard of the name Gosget?  Me neither. 

There is no excuse for ignorance so we looked up some details for you. 

 

The brand is being launched by SeeYou.com in Taiwan but their website doesn't seem to be operational yet.  They are launching three Bluetooth GPS receivers:
Gosget MB-588 Bluetooth GPS receiver
Gosget MB-688L Bluetooth GPS receiver + Data Logger
Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS receiver + Data Logger.


A couple of the units look very much like some of the Qstarz receivers that we recently reviewed (Travel Recorder) and it also seems another reincarnation of the i-Blue range, like the 737 and 747.

You can find the details of the solar unit below.
