I understand that HoudahGeo uses GPSBabel. Their web site indicates that 1.3.4 supports NMEA for the Sony GPS-CS1.

Can we expect HoudahGeo to support it in a reasonable time frame?

Hi!

HoudahGeo already supports the Sony NMEA format.

I connected my Sony but can't connect to it. Am I missing something?

Hi!

The Sony device is supposed to mount like a USB pen drive. On that drive you will find files which HoudahGeo can open ("Load GPS data from file").

The catch is that the Sony devices only ever worked with Intel Macs. With the Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5 updates, Apple has broken this support. Considering that the problems are said to stem from a non standard implementation on Sony's side, it is doubtful that such support will ever be restored by Apple.

As a workaround, you may use a [URL=http://www.acrox.com.tw/productdetial.asp?id=171#Title]USB OTG Link[/URL] to copy the contents of the track logger to a standard USB memory stick.

I spent two weeks in Japan and shot over a thousand pictures, and I was quite annoyed when I got home and found that my Sony GPS-CS1 had stopped working with my Macs. Fortunately I had Windows installed under Boot Camp, and that handled Sony's non-standard implementation of mass-storage mode.

The Sony did a reasonable job tracking my location, but I don't think I'll take it on any long trips in the future, for two major reasons. First, it shut itself off spontaneously a few times during the trip, losing an hour or so of data each time; I think something must have brushed the power switch. Second, the lack of a clock display made it difficult to sync my cameras to GPS time, and one of them had enough drift that in another week it would have been painful to correct for.

My Garmin GPSmap 60CS is bigger and takes more batteries, but I can at least keep my cameras in sync with it.
