GARMIN GPS 18x LVC Receiver

Overview


The GPS 18x is an OEM, high-sensitivity GPS sensor for use in automotive, fleet vehicle, and electronics applications that require a small, highly accurate GPS receiver.

Use in Small Spaces

This high-sensitivity, 12-parallel-channel, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver is available in CMOS-level serial or USB 2.0 full-speed versions and comes with an integrated magnetic base. The puck-like receiver is 2.4" (6.1cm) in diameter and weighs just a few ounces, making it an ideal solution for applications where space is at a premium.

Choose Your Connection Type

The GPS 18x is offered in three different cable configurations. All three versions of the GPS 18x come complete with non-volatile memory for storage of configuration information, a real-time clock and raw measurement output data for sophisticated customer applications.

  • GPS 18x PC has a DB-9 pin serial connector with a 12V cigarette lighter adapter. It can output data in NMEA 0183 format (industry standard) or proprietary Garmin format.
  • GPS 18x USB has an A-style USB connector, compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 full-speed hosts, and can output data in Garmin proprietary format only.
  • GPS 18x LVC has bare wire for connection to a variety of applications. It can output data in NMEA 0183 format (industry standard) or proprietary Garmin format, and provides a pulse-per-second logic-level output with a rising edge aligned to within 1 microsecond of UTC time.

The GPS 18x OEM is a high-sensitivity GPS sensor that replaces the GPS 18 OEM.


  • WAAS Enabled
    WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System), a system of satellites and ground stations, provides GPS signal corrections. WAAS-enabled GPS systems provide theoretical accuracy of less than 10 feet (3 meters).
  • 1Hz Pulse
    Provides a highly accurate 1Hz measurement pulse output for precise timing measurements. The pulse width is configurable in 20-millisecond increments, from 20ms to 980ms, with 1us accuracy.
  • Rugged Design
    The rugged design allows continuous exposure to prevailing weather conditions at most locations.
  • Built-In Battery
    The onboard rechargeable backup battery can maintain the real-time clock for up to 10 days.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product!

Pros: Exactly as expected. Unit ships with an odd connector (4 thin wires, yellow - white - green - black; and 2 thick wires; red - black).

Did not have to factory reset the unit as others had mentioned might be needed (on other sites). The receiver has a very nice long sleeve for the cables - easily fifteen feet.

Also had a magnetic base which I wasn't aware of, but was somewhat amused/happy about.

Wonderful addition to any network for accurate time keeping.

Cons: None, although for some reason newegg's price is considerably higher than others....

Other Thoughts: If you want to make your own stratum 1 server you will most likely want a few of these:

StarTech.com Assembled DB9 Female Solder D-SUB Connector with Plastic Backs

My soldering skills aren't the best, and a shaky hand doesn't help - so get extras if you're in the same boat.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat GPS Unit for a time server

Pros: Pulse per second output, great sensitivity, NMEA output, makes a great receiver for a dedicated NTP/PTP time server using gpsd, ntpd, and ptpd.

Cons: You have to solder your own connectors (but so what, right?)

Other Thoughts: This unit makes a great GPS receiver for an inexpensive time server. Put it with a cheap computer running some linux distro and an RS-232 and USB connector and you have a < $200 stratum 1 time server. I put one together for $150.00 using a refurbished Dell GX 280 (75.00) and this GPS receiver (65.00) plus some loose change for an RS-232 connector and a USB cable (for power).
