VK-172 USB GPS - Fire Sale!

VK-172 USB GPS - Fire Sale!

  • 1395
  • Save $ 6


We recently decided to discontinue the use of the VK-172 as part of FlightBox, but we still have over 100 in inventory. We're offering these as "Fire Sale" items. That means they're discounted. It also means that all sales are final.

Each  of them has been tested and has been proven to get a solid lock in less than two minutes when connected to a stable 5v source. That means that they work under optimal conditions. The Raspberry Pi is not necessarily optimal - we've seen minor voltage drops and instabilities that can make it difficult for the VK to get a lock. YMMV, as they say.

These are being sold "naked" - no plastic housing. They will arrive in a static bag looking more or less as you see them here. No limit, buy as many as you like. When they're gone, they're gone.
