That produced very good results in geolocating my images
5 December 2014
Summary: Device works as specified. Provides accurate tracking in a variety of settings. Supplied software installs and functions properly on Win 8.1. Use of software is not as flexible as hoped. My primary use for the device is to associate GPS log locations to my camera photos by matching timestamps. I had some difficulty synchronizing photo timestamps from my camera with the log track timestamps generated by the receiver.

Summary: I own the previous model of this device - BT-Q1000. So I knew what I expected to get. 40 days capacity of this new BT-Q1000XT is just great. The software is the same and still needs some improvements but is quite usable. But please be careful with its vibration sensor. Mine failed just in the middle of the long 300 miles highway between two cities in western Europe. 200 miles of this long summer journey were just not recorded. What a pity!
Summary: Bought this a few years back and love it. It goes with me on every road trip and goes in my pocket on tours etc. Took it on a few tours at Kennedy Space Center and it was great to see the route and locations of stops. It went with me to the top of the Sandia Tram ride in New Mexico and, using the Elevation profile view, was great to see the elevation dips and climbs along with the speed.
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: 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: 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: Took this over a 2 week trek through Peru. Device worked very well, has excellent battery life (Easily over a day). Kept pretty accurate logs as well. I never tried using the packaged software, so I can't speak to how well that works (I just used GPSBabel and Google Earth). My only complaint is that it beeps when looses signal, and there doesn't appear to be a way to turn this off (which can be quite irritating when you are stuck inside a building or train for a while).
