Summary: After a couple of weeks of experimenting with the device, I feel ready to share my opinion. Shortly I might have choose other device if I were spending more time researching…Please read all reviews before doing your choice. Let’s start from the fact that the model is really old.
Device is good but do not waste your time on its Data Viewer which is junk.

Summary: I used to have a BT-Q1000ex which was able to operate at 10Hz, but I lost it on a train ride in Vienna. I need one to geo-tag photos, but do not want to spend my lunch money on it, so I got the cheaper BT-Q1000xt instead.
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: I bought this to use on my motorcycle to re-trace good roads. It is compact, has good storage and battery life. Software is pretty limited, but usable. My primary complaint is that it worked well, but not for very long.
Summary: Does what its supposed to do, tracks GPS coordinates. Battery life great. The problem I encountered is with the QTravel software provided with the unit. Software is able to capture data points from unit, but when I tried to export to a GPX file so I could import into Lightroom I found the resulting...
Summary: this unit seems to work. read through the manual about 10 times, and combed the mfg web site for info required info (password) to pair the bluetooth with my droid phone. after hours of research and fumbling, turns out the bluetooth "pairing" password code is 0000.....
Seems to disconnect for no reason - software crashes often

Summary: I have high expectations with this after comnparing the reviews of many similar devices on Amazon. My usage is to geotag my photos and to record the tracks I took on the park trails. I usually walk for 2 hours for 5-6 miles each weekend.
Summary: Used this on a Beijing trip few weeks back. Couldn't log any track on aircraft. Lots of drift. Good battery life and storage capacity. Accompanied software not polish. Cannot write gps data into raw photos.
Summary: The 5Hz "update" rate is deceptive on the BT-q1000x. It did not even cross my mind that a GPS device that could take a reading every 5th of a second wouldn't be able to do the simple task of writing that data to the log at the same rate.
