Re: Simple GPS logger vs. full-featured unit
In reply to harrygilbert, May 3, 2010

I have a Holux M-241. This is very similar to the GiSTEQ DPL700, right down to the GPS chipset, except the Holux has a small LCD display. It looks like a 35mm film canister.

While driving around, I took along my Garmin 550 and the Holux along. When there were moderately tall buildings around, the Holux would often lose satellite signal. The instructions recommend that you keep the unit upright for best reception.

The Garmin had no difficulty under the same conditions and was quicker to acquire satellites.
