In addition to its more compact form factor, the Sierra Wireless AirCard 597E ExpressCard offers several advancements over earlier cards, including built-in assisted GPS (A-GPS) to support location-based services. Using the GPS chipset and the latest version of Sprint Connection Manager, users can conduct a "locate and search," which plots their current location on a map and then searches for nearby points of interest. The AirCard 597E also offers a high-performance integrated antenna to improve signal capture and data speed, and the new 65-nanometer (65nm) MSM6800A chipset from QUALCOMM, with improved power-efficiency, wireless data and GPS performance.
