GPS16-HVS GPS Receiver
Services Available
Repair No
Calibration No
Free Support No


The GPS16-HVS sensor, manufactured by Garmin, consisted of a receiver and an integrated GPS antenna. It received signals from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites, and then used the signals to calculate its position and velocity. That data, plus an extremely accurate real-time reading, could be transferred to the data logger for display or storage over time.

Additional Compatibility Information

Data Logger Considerations

Data logger interface options
  • A 17217 RJ45 Interface Cable to connect the sensor to a data logger control port. This option is compatible with our CR10(X), CR800, CR850, CR1000, CR3000, and CR23X dataloggers.
  • A 17218 Adapter and 18663 Null Modem Cable to connect the sensor to the data logger RS-232 port. This option is compatible with our CR23X, CR800, CR850, CR1000, and CR3000 dataloggers.
  • A 17218 Adapter to measure the sensor via an SDM-SIO4 Serial Input/Output Module. This option is compatible with our CR800, CR850, CR10X, CR1000, CR3000, CR23X, CR5000, and CR9000(X) dataloggers; it is the only option that is compatible with the CR5000 and CR9000(X) dataloggers.
GPS instruction

Our CR800, CR850, CR1000, and CR3000 dataloggers typically use the GPS instruction to read the GPS sensor. For the GPS instruction to "set the time" or "use the pulse from the GPS sensor," some data loggers need an updated clock chip. The clock chip is factory replaced (requires an RMA). Data loggers with the following serial numbers need an updated chip:

Data Logger Serial Number
CR1000M < 20409
CR800, CR850 < 792
CR3000 < 3168
