Please Choose:

FV-U8 is an enhanced version of FV-M8, with u-Blox solution. The main goal of FV-U8 is to be used as a part of integrated system, which can be a simple PVT (Position-Velocity-Time) system, for instance, G-mouse, PND (Personal Navigation Device), or complex wireless systems, such as a system with GSM function, a system with Bluetooth function, and a system with GPRS function. The module (FV-U8) can be the best candidate for users’ systems as the users’ systems need the careful consideration on the performance, sensitivity, power consumption, and/or size of the module.


  • Active antenna on board helps the system integrators to do the design-in easily.
