  • Ideal Bluetooth GPS receiver for GPS smartphones

    posted by testsubject on 15:55:40 G1T 21/01/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: * ideal for smartphones with integrated GPS just as much as smartphones without integrated GPS. Advantages over internal GPS chips in many smartphones are: 1) far better performance 2) quick & reliable locks to satellites (often indoors too) and no need for network usage that sub-par Assisted-GPS usage entails on all phones with integrated GPS 3) no lengthy minutes-long waits for obtaining your current position. In most cases the Holux M-1000 obtains a fix in about 30-40 seconds, even under difficult conditions. With a device like this you are just using the GPS satellites and nothing else. Ideal for prepaid smartphone users who wish not to use the network for Assistance when obtaining a GPS lock and who prefer far better performance under a wide range of environmental conditions. * Battery lasts for about 15 hours+ and this means far better battery life for your phone (no need to use internal GPS chip on phone, if it has one). Longer trips with less frequent charges are possible. * Nice concave groove on the sides of the device make it easier to hold (even though the unit is about the size of a box of matches). The ON switch is harder to hit accidentally because it sits in this groove. Great design. The unit will never be switched on or off accidentally sitting in your bag or when handling the unit under normal use. * robust, tight-fitting battery compartment using standard Nokia BL-5C battery size. Even when the battery has to be replaced in the future, it can. This is unlike so many other devices that don't let the user replace the internal rechargeable battery and keep it out of reach. Most people don't know that these don't last forever (heat and charge / discharge cycles all contribute to death of rechargeable batteries meaning that at some point they won't hold much charge and need replacement. Battery replacement is very easy to do here and for not too much cost.

    Cons: * No Auto Power Off when not in use. This means if you forget to turn your device off after your GPS trip, it will run down the battery. This has happened to me a few times. It would be great if it could turn off automatically or go into a low-power state automatically after a pre-defined time. A solution is to carry a spare BL-5C compatible battery or simply buy a spare M-1000 and carry that with you. * The manual warns: "do not place the M-1000 under strong sunlight for a long time". Which is funny because the top of the device is black with the sides and back being grey. It should be white or some other light colour so that the device does not heat up so much when in the sun. In fact, they couldn't have chosen a worse colours and this device will be exposed to the sun for (arguably) most people using it in their car. Covering it with a white sheet is a good option to keep it cool. Heat really isn't an issue if you are using it in your backpack pocket as I often do. * Mini-B USB jack should be covered with a rubber flap to keep out the elements (much like many cameras). It is exposed to the world and could be a potential failing that limits the devices longevity. Moisture and dust and other foreign particles are killers. * Bluetooth passcode cannot be changed from 0000, as far as I can tell. * "Quick Guide" printed manual is not the best. Literally 2 pages of text for each language with text that might be too small for some users with poorer eyes. The manufacturer's goal here is paper savings and that's obvious. An advantage is the booklet is small and pocketable. * device does not come with a data cable for connection and use on the PC. If you want something for the PC, you're better off getting a separate USB GPS device rather than paying exorbitant sums for their data cable, in my opinion. What this means is I never tried any of the PC software that comes with this device. It may be good or bad but I'll never know. * device does not come with a USB charging cable for charging on the PC but there are many devices like cameras and external hard drives that use the same standard "USB-to-Mini-B" cable this device uses, so it's not really a big issue (and perhaps most people will be charging with the supplied car adaptor) * the device is not waterproof and does not have a magnetic base like some USB GPS devices do, but then again it doesn't claim to be.

    Other: For GPS use with a bluetooth-capable smartphone with navigation software, the M-1000 is ideal. With super-sensitive GPS performance and great battery life and very good design, the Holux M-1000 is still among your best choices in this category. It delivers the goods.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's cheap, portable and fairly quick to connect to sattelites and devices. And because it's bluetooth 2.0, it can connect to more than 1 device at once.
    The battery charges to full very fast. Read the reviews on google for this device. Then get it from here.

    Cons: -Back cover feels like it could break at any time.
    -No way to change Bluetooth Pairing key.
    -Although the device has the standard USB ports, you need a special cable to actually use the USB to communicate with the PC as the device is actually an RS232 device.

    Other: Totally get it.

  • One of the best GPS recievers

    posted by volandir on 13:53:01 G4T 15/04/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Fast start at any weather conditions or in car. Long battery work time - about 15h and fast full-charge time - about 2 hours from laptop/pc usb host. Bluetooth connection established within 10 meters, as manufacturer claim. Sometimes it takes from 1 to 2 minutes to connect to 5 or more satellites.

    Cons: On/Off button is slightly drowned onto plastic edge and sometimes it is hard to reach it, but nothing really cons to mention.

    Other: Exellent choice for those, who for some reasons don't like SirfStar-based Receivers. Also, it is real Holux!
