Discussion: GPS Logger
in: Orienteering; Gear & Toys;
What GPS Logger are you using? (no watches - only GPS for WRE)
Fine, exclude me from your exclusive discussion you excluding excluder.
There have been a few previous threads on this which you can find by searching. Most recently:http://www.attackpoint.org/discussionthread.jsp/me...
Reasonably happy with it once i learnt how to use it (manual being based on a previous model).
Just got GiSTEQ DL-500 5Hz logger. Battery suppose to last 32hours. Tried once. So far so good. Still playing with settings. Planning to use it on coming CNYO rogaine this weekend. Will post more updates after that.
I noticed the DL-500 also has a 3-axis accelerometer ("g-sensor"). does the log include that data?
edit: sounds like maybe
, when the software works.
According to docs - it does, but by default this option is disabled and needs to be changed in settings. I did not activate it yet.
And it works woth gpsbabel which is good.
I have the iGotU GT-120 and can't recommend it except purely as recreational. Fine for low needs, but needing a lot of fine-tuning once in quickroute. Maybe the higher-priced models are better.
Must be worn on the top of your shoulder (or your head), then the precision is comparable to or even better than a Garmin Forerunner (worn on your wrist).
If you wear the BT-Q1300 the recommended way (wrist or upper arm) the precision is rather poor, especially in dense forests.
I've had good success with the M-1000C
worn on my head or in the top pouch of a backpack. 20hrs was no problem, i think that's the longest I've used it for at a single go. Seems fairly accurate, I think it's a good chipset and has 66 channels.
Gpsbabel works fine, but had to guess for a setting or two because it's not (or wasn't last summer) a listed device. BT747 works as well.
OpenStreetMap project has a serious set of reviews, too:
