In addition, while the device still has 128MB of flash memory, it now has six user-selectable tracking modes. The differences between modes have to do with the amount of information recorded (types of NMEA 0183 records), the frequency of position recordings, or both.
The original device recorded a position every second, and would completely fill the memory in 72 hours. Now you can choose between recording every second, every 5 seconds, or every 10 seconds. You can choose to record 5 different types of records, or just "RMC" records; these contain date, time, latitude, and longitude, which is enough for attaching locations to photos. RMC records also contain speed and direction of travel, but not altitude. Altitude is in "GGA" records, which also contain latitude, longitude, and time, but not date. (Who designed this stuff, anyway?)
Recording only RMC records every second, the device can now hold a track that lasts 288 hours. As you might expect, recording every 5 seconds yields 1440 hours, and every 10 seconds yields 2880 hours. Recording more record types takes more space, but recording everything record type it knows about every 10 seconds can be done for 720 hours.
The device remembers the last mode you set, and uses it the next time it powers up. You can just set it and forget it.
I found the recorded altitudes to be very inaccurate -- it claims a difference of 30 meters altitude between the front and back of my yard, while a difference of 1.5 meters is more like it. I understand that GPS devices generally don't do well with altitudes.Read more ›
I found this GPS Data Logger and it advertises heavily that it is MAC OSX compliant. I looked at the reviews for this device on Amazon and various other websites. Most of the negative comments didn't alarm me as they were for the most part due to a misunderstanding of what the device does or they didn't like a feature set.
What I have learned is this:
1. GPS Photo Tracker software - This software comes in the box from AMOD and embeds the GPS locations into the digital photograph JPEGs. This is written only for Microsoft Windows and does exist for Macintosh OSX. In fact if you have Vista 64 don't bother installing the software that comes with the device; it will crash. This is a known bug and AMOD has a fixed version on their website.
2. The GPS device looks like a thumb drive to any computer and the GPS tracks are stored in ASCII. This allows any computer to look at the data, there are no proprietary formats or synchronization drivers. This is what they call "Driverless" and is a in my opinion a very good decision.
3. Upgrades to the firmware must be run from Windows computers. If you don't happen to own a Windows computer, you're out of luck. This is not a very good decision when calling your product MAC compatible.
You might be asking; "So, if the photo-linking software supplied by AMOD does not exist for MAC computers and firmware upgrades only exist for Windows computers, how can they say it is compatible with MAC"?Read more ›
