Whoops, my bad, The correct link is this unit but I asked the second question and they seemed a bit vague.


Thich does actually remind me, I need a basic GPS logger with no SMS/GSM radio parts.

Does anyone know or has bought one that can do timed traces either every time interval or every 10M for example and had a decent performing GPS in it? prefer with a serial output also but not a requirement.

That looks like the one that makes up 70% of available units on ebay

It's also "drop-shipping" and with the multitude of various "module options"
 i'd be a little wary. Get something that is tested locally or DIY and have fun and frustration.

As for basic "logger" modules, I was thinking of the "Qstarz Q1300" as it has an exceptional dBm rating  200k logs and selectable logging intervals and is available from a local supplier eFrontier.

Has anyone tried one?

Almost all my phones have GPS and a multitude of applications but I want someting I can throw on the dash and press 1 button and track and also use with a PC and obviously, much better performance as the phones really do suck.

Yeah the GlobalSat ones on EFrontier look pretty good and not much more expensive considering the piece of mind.

scottjpalmer:
What I would be interested in is the ability to see a breadcrumb trail of the past 1,3,5,10 days of switchable "layers". This would be cool to look at after a road trip etc in addition to just the current location which is what you would be after if your vehicle was stolen.


You mean like this? : http://aprs.fi/?call=ZL4DM-9&dt=1208563200&mt=m&z=11&timerange=3600

I need to get my APRS gateway running again, we've moved house so I don't have my antennas back up yet.

edit: gah.. silly site, you'll need to 'log in' first, just enter "GUEST" or something in the box and click log in, then click the link above again.

Yip something just like that - without having to get motivated to finally get my amateur radio ticket and associated hardware :-)

Looking good. Obviously in it's very infant stages with a few bugs, I have emailed them details.

Cheers
