Condor family of GPS modules

Trimble's Condor family of GPS modules features major advancements in signal tracking for applications working in poor signal environments. With their higher sensitivity, performance and faster startup times, the Condor GPS modules enable system integrators to easily add Global Positioning System (GPS) capability to a mobile device with minimal impact on its size or battery life at a very economical price.

The Condor GPS family includes modules with different form factors and interface options:
