Good value, but you might need additional software – 65-Channel Car Navigation and Tracking Bluetooth GPS Receiver + Data Logger Reviews

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

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
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)
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.
