  • Good value, but you might need additional software

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It logs data

    You can use it as bluetooth receiver

    Relatively compact and light

    Apparently it uses a standard Nokia battery so you can get spares

    It's the cheapest logger here on DX

    Cons:

    NOT waterproof at all (mine is now broken)

    Does not output in GPX format, and the KML output is latitude/longitude ONLY (.dat logs does contain other info though)

    You need to use multiple software to make any use of your logs (GeoVisu + GPX Editor 1.0232 for GPX logs; the included software to configure settings and clear tracks)

    Bluetooth is the ONLY interface (USB is for charging only, not transferring data)

    Bottomline:

    It's a good deal for what it does, but expect to get your hands a little dirty trying to figure out how to correctly use the data logs. GeoVisu is free and seems to work fine. Read the forums below; you'll find alot of useful information.

    Also, keep in mind that you NEED bluetooth on your computer/device because USB is for powering only. Get the sku.11866 it works fine.

    Finally, if you're going to take this on any outdoor trips, be sure to put is in a ziplock bag or otherwise waterproof case, because once it's soaked in water it's done. Mine got wet on a bike tour and now the bluetooth doesn't work anymore, which makes it useless.
