Globalsat GPS Director GD-101 digital compass

Globalsat have unveiled their latest digital compass, the GPS Director GD-101.  A compact 60 x 60 28 mm and weighing just 45g complete with two AAA batteries, the GD-101 has a 96 x 95 pixel monochrome display for showing compass direction or guiding you back to your car in the parking lot.

The GPS Director will store up to five destination points, either from physically being at that point or manually entering the coordinates, and will show distance in either kilometers, miles or nautical-miles.  There's also a backlight, GPS signal strength meter and battery gage.

Two fresh batteries are good for 18hrs runtime – more if you flip into power-saving mode – and the GD-101 can keep hold of signals as low in strength as -161dBm.  No word on pricing or availability as yet.
