My vote goes to the QStarz GPS logger:

It connects a lot quicker than the "Wintec WBT-201" (yes, I have tried it) and is more stable.

Never had that issue with my wbt-201!

Track file downloads immediately to Houdahgeo (mac) everytime and I've been using it for over 2 years.

Seems like there's quite a few hoops to jump through to get the Qstar to download tracks via bluetooth judging by the manual.

The WBT-201 worked fine for downloading, but I used it with a Canon WFT via Bluetooth, and the camera lost the connection too easy. This is where the Qstarz is better.

On both the WBT-201 and the Qstarz I download the logfile to the computer via USB, so that's no problem. Didn't even know it was possible to download the logfile via Bluetooth!

So I use the Qstarz connected to the camera via Bluetooth if I use the WFT, or put it on logging to be able to download the file and geotag later if I want to go lighter (and if I want to log the position of course!).
