The GPS supports both standard NMEA-0183 and SiRF Binary protocols.
The LR9805ST is packaged as a compact 24mm x 20mm x 2.9mm module to allow quick and easy integration into a wide range of applications such as PDAs, pocket PCs, car and marine navigation, fleet management and asset tracking. The RoHS compliant device features a cold, warm and hot start time of 45, 35 and 4 seconds respectively and a signal reacquisition time of 0.1 seconds.
