INTRODUCTION
1.1. Overview
The GPS 9537 Wireless GPS receiver is a Global Positioning System Receiver with
Bluetooth wireless technology. This wireless GPS receiver allows you to receive GPS data on
mobile handheld wirelessly. By sending GPS position data over Bluetooth, you can position the
receiver for the best possible reception all without wires. The advent of wireless GPS receiver
will become the next level of GPS receivers.
The GPS 9537 Wireless GPS receiver integrates Bluetooth module into GPS device. It
shows the high performance, low power consumption, easily portable, rechargeable &
removable battery function and wireless data transmission. If you have a Pocket PC or other
portable devices enabled with Bluetooth function, for example iPAQ 3870/3970 and SONY
Ericsson T68 mobile phone, you can take advantage of your device’s Bluetooth capability to
wirelessly add GPS positioning technology. When you choose suitable navigation software, you
can apply to personal, vehicle tracking, and marine navigation.
If you use this wireless GPS receiver, you will ignore the messy cords and antenna and
add the portability of your Pocket PC. In addition, This wireless GPS receiver can change the
exhausted battery to full battery like battery of mobile phone.

OPERATION
2.1. Hardware Description
The Bluetooth GPS has two LED light which each has two colors. One is GPS & Charge
status LED, that is named LED 2, and the other is Bluetooth & low power status LED, that is
named LED 1. The status table of LED shows as follows:

<Note1>When the Bluetooth is active and LED 1 lights, it shows Bluetooth RF function. As long
as the Bluetooth RF is transmitting the LED light will flash. When Bluetooth doesn’t connect the
other Bluetooth device, the LED 1 will be flash periodically. Therefore, it means that it broadcasts
message to connect the other device with Bluetooth function. If it connects the other Bluetooth
device and transmits data, LED 1 will flash very quickly and look like bright.
<Note 2>When the battery is charging, LED 1 will show purple-red color and flash. The reason
that Bluetooth is working cause LED 1 purple-red color. If the GPS receiver go to the end of
-3-
charge, LED 1 will show blue color and flash.
2.2. Turn on/off
Turn on
To turn on the receiver, press the power button on the topside briefly
(0.5 seconds). The left LED(LED 2) indicator will flash briefly. The right
LED (LED 1) indicator will start flashing.
Turn off
To turn off the receiver, press the power button on the topside for 3
seconds. The LED indicator will flash briefly before switching off the
receiver.
2.3. Charging
Low Power
The right LED(LED 1) indicator will turn RED (normally BLUE) when
battery power becomes low. Connect the receiver to a powers source to
continue operation and to recharge the battery.
Charging
The left LED(LED 2) indicator will turn RED (or ORANGE) when the
battery is being charged. When fully charged, the RED indicator will
switch off.
2.4. Bluetooth Communication
Waiting to
The right LED(LED 1) indicator will flash if there is no communication
connect
between the receiver and another device.
Connected
The right LED(LED 1) indicator will turn to continuous lighting when the
receiver is connected through the wireless link with another device.
2.5. GPS
Navigating
The left LED(LED 2) will flash GREEN (or ORANGE when charging) if the
receiver is able to determine the current position.
2.6. PIN CODE
The PIN code means Personal Identification Number for Bluetooth device and it is also
called as Pass Key. The Bluetooth GPS receiver has the default PIN Code, and is “0000”.
Generally speaking, there are two steps in Bluetooth connecting. One is pairing process, the
other is link process. If you need PIN code to pairing and connect, you can use the default pin
code, “0000” to connect Bluetooth device. Our GPS receiver belongs to non-safety connecting,
you can use in general application to finish connecting.

NOTICES
4.1. Global Positioning System
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated and maintained by the Government of
the United States of America who are responsible for the availability and the accuracy of the
system. Changes in the operation, availability and accuracy may affect the operation of your GPS
receiver.
4.2. Aircraft and Hospitals
Use of devices with an antenna is prohibited on most aircraft and in many hospitals.
The GPS 9537 Wireless GPS receiver is a receiving and transmitting device with two antenna’s and
should not be used in these environments.
4.3. Heat Reflective Shields
Modern vehicles may have a heat reflective shield in the windshield, preventing proper
GPS signal reception if the receiver is placed under the windshield. To get proper reception:
(a) Use an external antenna, or
(b) Place the receiver in a different position, or
(c) Attach the cradle to the windshield behind the rearview mirror, where many vehicles have an
opening in the heat reflective shield, indicated by a black outline.

APPENDIX A
SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
iPAQ Bluetooth Setup with Pocket PC software
<Note 1> These steps apply to the PDA with Bluetooth function, for example iPAQ 3870
or 3970 PDA
<Illustration> Bluetooth GPS receiver and iPAQ h3970 device
There are several steps to use Bluetooth GPS(9537) with PDA (Bluetooth Built-in PDA or PDA
with Bluetooth CF card) for user. Since the version of BTW-CE (Widcomm Bluetooth Manager) may
be different for all PDA, there two operations introduced in the manual.
1. How to Check The Version of Bluetooth Manager
It’s very simple to check the version of BTW-CE. If BTWCE is installed in the PDA, there will
be a Bluetooth icon (
or
) displayed in the right of the bottom of screen.
and the declaration for copyright of BTWCE will be shown in “about” page.

(8) Since BTW-CE will remember the last device linked to, the user doesn’t have to go the
previous steps when going to use the Bluetooth device. Applications could open the serial
port directly, and then BTW-CE will smartly try to connect to the last linked device.
However, if there’s other device the user want to use, the steps should be done again.
