I wish the website included instructions for the firmware update, but it turned out not to be too difficult to figure out... When I first tried the update, it would not work because it said it had no space for it, so I figured it needed some kind of storage attached, so I plugged in an 8GB usb stick and the firmware update to version 2.000.042 went smoothly, and now ExFAT is supported!!
I really did not expect the manufacturer to be so responsive to my review, after all, that just doesn't happen very often, but it is very nice to see a manufacturer care so much about the product they make and how it is used by the consumers! Now that this can read all my camera SD cards, I can back them up in the field to a pair of portable 2TB hard drives... never trust an important backup to just one drive, all mechanical hard drives only have one absolute guarantee... they are ALL guaranteed to fail.. you never know when, or how, but they all will most defiantly fail. But on the bright side, external hard drives are very inexpensive per GB compared to SD cards, so this system works great for me.
The dual Wi-Fi system also works very well, with one wi-fi connection to connect to the internet, and a second one to connect to multiple devices, everyone connected through this device can see the pictures and videos, back up their cell phone photos and videos, and also have internet access, all at the same time.
It's very very nice to be able to preview the photos and videos of my trip on my cell phone or tablet and when I get home, I just install the USB drive on my computer and upload everything to it if I have a lot of data to transfer, or, if it's not too much the SAMBA service works awesome as well! Just attach the device's internet Wi-Fi to my home router, or plug in a network cable to my router and simply transfer all my files over the network. The DNLA server also is a really nice touch and works perfectly.
I wish I could give it more than 5 Stars now, with ExFAT support, it does everything I need it to do, but more important than that, I could not be more impressed with their attention to this matter and their genuine concern for customer satisfaction.
It has one fundamental flaw that severely limits it's usefulness and there is no way to work around it... It can't read ExFAT formatted disks or memory cards. My only intention in buying it was to be able to hook it up to a hub with both a 2TB backup drive and an SD card reader to be able to backup my camera memory cards in the field. The large battery is a great feature, which would have allowed me to back up anywhere, anytime, and the router and wi-fi options would also be great for sharing and browsing my photos later on. This is a modern device, and should support modern disk formats... ALL large SD cards are formatted ExFAT, as it is the best format for them. I don't even have any memory cards smaller than 64GB anymore, so they are ALL ExFAT. I do not understand why the limitation here, maybe they did not want to pay Microsoft the royalty for using their patented disk format, but unfortunately without ExFAT support, this device is severely limited.
I have tried and tried to work around this, I can format my memory cards using NTFS, and then it does recognize them.. but unfortunately, none of my cameras can work with NTFS, they all use ExFAT.. ALL of them!! From my cheap Kodak point and shoot to my fully loaded Sony Alpha 77, not one of them will use NTFS, and they will ALL format the card ExFAT with no option to use anything else.
So I had to return it and now I'm getting a western digital wi-fi hard drive that has an SD card slot right on it, and built in batteries as well.. it's a bit more expensive than this but it's all self contained and DOES read ExFAT drives, in fact it's own internal drive is ExFAT. It also has all the same router functions that this device has.
To write a fair review, I did test this backing up my phone camera images, and it did this over the wi-fi connection flawlessly, so I was happy about that... so those of you who just want a way to empty out your phone memory on the go, this would be great for that.. and it does work with smaller SD cards that are formatted FAT32, so if you are still using those obsolete small cards it would also work for that. I am really disappointed that it just can't read my ExFAT SD cards, it's otherwise a really nice product
The first is a powerful portable recharging battery, useful for all devices that recharge by plugging in to USB.(It has a USB micro-B port with no data capabilities - only for recharging the TM05's battery. The USB-A (larger) port actually serves two functions: in addition to recharging, it can attach USB storage devices, including drives that require a power boost to operate. These devices can then be accessed by WiFi from a smart phone or computer. Up to four devices can be attached by using a 4-port USB hub, though when I tried to use it with a power-hungry 2TB drive, it wasn't able to supply the juice without plugging the hub in separately to line power.
The TM05's WiFi can in used in three ways. The first I already mentioned: allowing access to USB storage devices. The second is as a router. For this, you need to plug the TM05 into an Internet-connected ethernet network. Connecting by WiFi to your phone or computer then gives you access to the Internet. The third way is to use the device as a "bridge", but the usefulness of this is limited. What it does is to connect your computer WiFi to the TM05, then re-transmit your signal to a second WiFi. Since all your signals are sent twice through the TM05, they take twice as long to get where they're going. The primary purpose of a "bridge" I suppose is boost a faint WiFi signal by putting the TM05 half-way between you and the WiFi you're trying to reach.
The TM05's WiFi signal is actually pretty respectable. On the 2nd floor of my house, with the NT05 in the basement, the signal registers as -64dB (3 bars). Compare this to my NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless Router (WNR1000-100NAS (G54/N150)) located in the same part of the basement, reading -70dB (1 bar).
OK, that's the good part. The bad part is the documentation and the user interface. It looks great superficially, lots of screen shots and a graphic interface on the Web. The drawback in the documentation is lack of basic information like how you would use the device, what the features are good for, and the fact the its internal memory is for its own operations only, not for YOU to use. I looked in vain for days trying to find the storage I *thought* was on the device. Troubleshooting information is also very weak.
The Web interface is all about "making it easy to use". Big, colorful buttons - and very few of them. Once you've attached your own storage devices, you can see the files there. The HooToo automatically creates four empty folders on every device you plug in, for Music Pictures, Videos, and Share. But trying to move files is not at all easy. How do you transfer files from one device to another? Not clear. How do you upload and download files? Not clear.
I was very eager to learn how tp access the TM05 using a standard file-transfer method, like Windows (File) Explorer, FTP, or even command line... Not documented.
Note: I didn't download HooToo's Android app. If you're like me, you don't want to clog memory on your phone with yet another single-purpose app.
Finally, I figured it out: If you enable Samba (which is under TM05's Settings > Services Settings > Samba Service), your computer will be able to see the TM05 if you're on its WiFi network. You can then use File Explorer to open any of the devices you've plugged in to TM05 and manage files in the usual ways. On my Android, I joined the TM05's WiFi net and used ES File Explorer to access it. Under ES's Network > LAN, I put in the TM05's IP address (10.10.10.254 by default), user "admin" and my password (blank by default! - you should change it ASAP!) which quickly brought up the file listing on the USB device I had plugged in to TM05.
So with just a little extra documentation, this can be a relatively easy and powerful little helper, both for travel and around the house!
The only downside and the reason I did not rate it five stars: The included instructions and those on the website leave quite a bit to be desired. Had trouble setting the unit up, and it did not "remember" logon passwords set during setup. Went through this process 4-5 times: Start setup, setup wireless network settings, change default admin/user passwords...attempt to log on only to have password not work. Factory reset using needle and start over. After several attempts, decided to update FW. The FW update instructions provided on the website do not work. The "load new FW" choice shown in the instructions never appeared. Finally, downloaded the latest FW to USB and then inserted USB into TripMate USB port, then powered up the device. Apparently, unit found FW when powering up and loaded it. Once the new FW was loaded, I also had no more password problems.
Once setup, the unit worked very well. Did notice that even when powered down, the USB memory stick was warm, telling me that it is still using power. There is an "Eject" USB option in the app that may remove power if this is an issue.
