For some time this year the talk in the GPS industry has shifted from Bluetooth GPS receivers to Dataloggers. First at CES, then at CeBIT, finally at Computex eBonTek gave me my first review sample, the DL-3200BT Bluetooth GPS Datalogger.

The DL-3200BT is based on the MTK GPS chipset, which is very sensitive, accurate and frugal with power. The Datalogger is reputed to run for 25 hours between charges. The device is capable of storing up to 170,000 track points and has the capability to record specific locations.

Once back in the office, or at home, the data can be downloaded from the datalogger and analysed in Google Earth.

These amazing little devices have a large number of potential applications recording all sorts of information. They are passive systems meaning that they can only record data for historic analysis, and not transmit your current position.

Just one question. Why is it unfortunate that the trackpoint data is displayed in the metric system? To my knowledge a very small share of the global population uses other systems than the metric system.

You say that the device can be configured to record a point at regular periods. What is the maximum number of points per given period of time say points/second or points/minute?

Thank You

You'll find it will be seconds/point and/or mins/point.

Most of these sorts of device allow you to set them up to log every n seconds or minutes (some do every x metres of travel) and yet others do combinations.

Maximum would be 1 log every second as this tends to be the default calculation rate for a position fix with a GPSr.

Have a look at the Zycast 289 - this is reviewed on these forums - ad has an SD card for logging - greatly extending the number of points that could be logged.

I dont know of any UK suppliers, but you could try the Qstarz BT-Q1000Platinum the software is far better and you can get them from SuperETrader for about 70.
