Hello,

I'm really interested in your software. Yet, I don't own a GPS built-in camera so I'm interested in buying a GPS tracker.

As I'm living in France I couldn't find a Wintec reseller but I found a QStarz reseller for the Q1300 (the one the FAQ recommends).

I was wondering if the QStarz Q1000X was also working with HoudaGeo since the only difference, to me, is the size (larger than the Q1300) and the batterylife (up to 42 hours VS "only" 12 hours with the Q1300).

Thanks for your answer that I will hopefully get beforthe the 02/10/2008 because there is a promo on the QStarz 1300 at my reseller store.

Best regards,

Clement

Hi!

From what I read, the BT-Q1000X uses the MTKII chip which is indeed compatible with GPSBabel / HoudahGPS / HoudahGeo.

The real question is if a USB driver is needed. It is not for the Q1300.
If a driver is needed, you will need to check if a Mac version is available.

Thank you for your answer, I guess I should juste get the X1300 if I want to be sure no USB driver is needed.

By reading threads in the forum I encountered the Columbus V-900 which seems to be a really nice compromise (24 hours battery life and up to 25 million waypoints through a MicroSD card, compatibility with Mac OSX)

What is your opinion ?

Thanks again.

p.s : isn't Pierre Bernard french ? If so : Bonjour et merci infiniment !

edit : I made some research and according to [URL=http://www.blog-shmog.com/2009/01/04/columbus-v900-an-in-depth-review]this website[/URL] the file format of the Columbus V-900 doesn't fit HoudahGeo standards.

Hi!

HoudahGeo uses GPSBabel to read GPX, NMEA and "universal" CSV files. I don't often mention CSV compatibility as this usually requires manual tweaking of the file before import.

P.S: Pierre Bernard is indeed a French name. I am from Luxembourg, but do speak French.

Best,

Thanks again for your answer !

As a matter of fact I thought HoudhaGeo couldn't read universal CSV files.

I understand universal CSV is fully compatible and equals GPX / NMEA. I mean it is not less precise or handy to be used.

If you tell me universal CSV works just fine I will just have to choose between the QStarz Q1300 and the Columbus V-900 (hard choice !) and order a copy of HoudahGeo .

If anyone has a personal preference for a reason or another, please don't hesitate to tell me .

edit : I guess it is more convenient to speak English on the forum so forgive me if my grammar is not perfect . Merci encore pour les réponses et félicitations pour la conception du logiciel.

Hi!

The CSV format supported by HoudahGeo is documented here:

Hi !

It is quite enough information for geotagging.

Many thanks !
