The rugged GPS 19x NMEA 0183 receiver/antenna offers high sensitivity reception and pinpoint GPS accuracy.
Delivers Precise Location Data
This 32-channel receiver is capable of tracking multiple global navigation satellite systems, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and QZSS. Since more satellites are visible, it can provide more accurate fixes in challenging conditions. With its enhanced position, heading and speed accuracy delivered up to 10 times more often than other receivers/antennas, it provides smoother drawing of position at higher speeds. WAAS-capable, it can determine your precise location to within 3 m (9.84 ft).
Compared to units with slower update rates, the GPS 19x offers dramatic improvement when used at low speeds. Position and course information from slower units can jitter and swing considerably at speeds below 1 mph. The GPS 19x provides a consistent and smooth heading which is especially important when trying to hit a specific waypoint or mark. The GPS 19x also reflects the true boat heading smoothly and accurately. This is especially evident when coming out of turns. And, the GPS 19x eliminates position skipping that can occur at low speeds and when turning the boat in an arc. The GPS 19x maintains a smooth position throughout the turn.
Built for Versatility
Part of the Garmin marine instrument family, the GPS 19x HVS is built to withstand the elements. This waterproof (IPX7) sensor can be pole mounted or flush mounted. It also can be attached to the underside of many fiberglass decks for added ease of installation. In addition, it also can be configured to have 1 Hz or 5 Hz update rates to help support specific installation requirements.

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
