Summary: I bought this to add GPS to my B&N Nook Color. Works well with OsmAnd mapping app (no cellular connectivity needed) and Bluetooth GPS app. It's a little minimalist in its "user interface" - just a couple of cryptic lights and one three-position switch.
Summary: Works good. Descent price. Much better alternative to a camera with built-in GPS. This little guy will operator for 13+ hours on a charge. Only big problem is the software for managing the GPS logger is anything but intuitive.
Summary: Wanted to post a review because I have seen a lot of Mac users having issues when trying to access the track log. What I have found works the best is to download the free HoudahGPS software (do a google search for it). I connect my QStarz using a USB cable to my Mac. The HoudahGPS software has an option to get the data from a device. Pick Qstarz, USB port, and then select the name that is in the drop down (not sure how it comes up with this).
Summary: I bought the Q-1000XT on February, with the Qmileage software. I have a lot of issues with the GPS or the software. I tried to ask directly the original company, with the seller agreement. For each email I sent, with clear questions and screenshots, I did not have any answers for my issues. the kind of issues are: GPS detected move on one night for 5000Kms...
Summary: I was looking for a small device that I could just throw into the backpack and log our hikes. This logger met all of my needs and works great. My main criteria were: * that it holds a lot of data for multi-day hiking * you can set how many seconds between each logged GPS location (I set it to 10 seconds) * it should have good software for downloading and displaying data * it must have a physical on/off switch for reliability and power conservation * it should be small...
Summary: This does work. It eventually locks on, sometimes taking more than two minutes. Despite other reviews, for the most part it will not work inside, and I have had geometry problems in urban canyons. Everytime it loses lock and regains it, it beeps. This is both a plus and a minus. The software requires a license key to work, so don't lose the piece of paper they send with the disk.
Summary: I bought this to add location information to my photos, and so far it's working fine. I have a Mac, and the included software only works on Windows, so I needed to buy HoudahGEO to do the tagging. This software will import the GPX track files from the BT-Q1000XT over USB and uses them to add latitude, longitude, and elevation to the metadata of each of your photos. It's pretty easy to use; just be sure not to change your camera's time during your trip.
Summary: I really can't review this product because I couldn't get it to work under Windows 8 which is specifically why I purchased it. Only when I received it and looked carefully through the electronic manual did I find an indication it will only work with Windows XP, Vista, and 7. There were no Win 8 drivers available from their website.
Summary: About the size of a car key fob, this little GPS logger does the job. After turn on, it acquires the GPS satellites and starts navigation after about 30 seconds. The unit is sensitive enough that it works fine by just tossing into a pack or carrying in your pocket. The on off switch is 3 position: off, navigation, Log (also navigation). Built in memory records 400,000 data points. I use this along with a camera to record where photos are taken.
