Clicky

I'm using version 3.6.2 of Houdah Geo and tried to download data that I recorded from a whole day's travel by a QStarz BT-Q1000XT. On Mac OS X 10.9.1 I connected my GPS logger to Mac through bluetooth, and then I clicked the Import GPS button, a progress bar appeared but it never seems like it's downloading anything. I'm forced to click stop.

I tried Houdah GPS as well. The app could connect to the GPS device but again nothing is downloaded while the progress bar never stops spinning until I abort by clicking Cancel.

May I ask what I need to do to download the track data? What is the correct workflow to get it to work?

Thanks.

Hi!

This should work as is.
Bluetooh can however be very slow to download large track files.

Unfortunately it doesn't after numerous attempts.

I'e tried BT747 and it works so it proves that it's not the problem of the GPS logger.

What are the steps to connect to the device?

Does BT474 download all tracks or just the latest?
I have seen Bluetooth download on full memory to take hours.

Please check this thread for a discussion of a similar problem:

I am not sure which USB chip is used in BT-Q1000XT.
Please try installing the following USB driver.

BT747 downloaded all the tracks. In fact I couldn't choose which to download.

As for the USB Driver it seems that it doesn't work with Mavericks? My MacBook Pro couldn't boot up immediately after installation, seemingly a result of a kernel problem. I had to reinstall the OS.

Hi!

I am sorry to hear that.

Where did you get the driver from?
It seems I forgot to include the link in my previous post.

The one I meant is the "CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Driver" from Silicon Labs.
It is at http://www.silabs.com/Support%20Documents/Software/Mac_OSX_VCP_Driver.zip
It has been tested to work with Mac OS X 10.9

BTW, I always recommend to use a separate tool to download track logs as GPX files for archival.
Downloading a copy directly into HoudahGeo is an added convenience, but it would be a shame not having the original tack log on archive.

The USB driver you mentioned is still not compatible, I'm sorry to say.

However, my problem seems to have been solved as the Bluetooth connection now works. I found that it only works if I let HoudahGeo or HoudahGPS link to it through Bluetooth, without pairing it to the Mac through the system's Bluetooth pref beforehand. At least I've tried twice and both attempts worked. That's good enough for me.

Thanks for your replies.
