Useful Accessories for your GPS Receiver

3rd November 2002

We've collected a list of accessories that people are using with their GPS receivers and Pocket PC's.  Take a look at some of these if you don't already have them.


Stinger Stylus

Widget 3.94 inc VAT  BUY IT

Great for in car use when you're driving.  No need to try and grasp a stylus, just clip these around several of your fingers and you have a perfect stylus!





Re-Radiating Antenna

GPS Warehouse 44.99 inc VAT  BUY IT

If you have a coated windscreen, or a heated windscreen, or are just having signal problems in-car, but your GPS receiver works fine if you hold it outside, then purchase a re-radiating antenna.  This will boost your signal and will allow you to get quicker TTFF's and better satellite locks.  The re-radiating antenna has a 45cm transmit distance. Includes receiving antenna with 5m cable, 12V cigarette lighter adaptor and indoor re-radiating antenna. Ideal for car/home use. Supply Voltage:12V DC unregulated via cigarette lighter adaptor (included).



TomTom Navigator Cables

Widget 19.99 inc VAT

If you have several PDA's and need another cable set to connect your second or third Pocket PC up to your TomTom Navigator mouse, or if you need a replacement cable, you can get these direct from Widget.

TomTom Navigator Cable for Compaq iPAQ 3600/3700

TomTom Navigator / Leadtek GPS Receiver

Okay, this may not be an accessory to a GPS Receiver, it's a GPS Receiver itself!  However, have you purchased TomTom Navigator software and since then wanted the hardware only to find that TomTom do not sell the hardware direct ?   The receiver is a Leadtek GPS 9531.  You can purchase this from Tecrep in the UK and an adapter from Widget and you have the complete hardware for 130!  Thanks to PeterB for persevering and doing the groundwork.
