Allmusic awarded the album 4 stars with Thom Jurek stating "This is an exciting way to hear new works from Douglas. And while it's commendable – and more than likely necessary – that he continues to develop the technological format for distribution of his work, one hopes that he continues to issue physical recordings like this one too".On All About Jazz John Kelman said "Each of the GPS sets reflects a different side of Douglas' approach to playing, writing and band-leading, building on a body of work that's remarkable for its size, depth and breadth. ...With the range of music covered by these inaugural releases in his Greenleaf Portable Series, Douglas demonstrates that the wellspring is far from dry, and that, nearly twenty years after emerging on the scene as a vital force, he remains as expansive, creative and relevant as ever".
