Jan 2, 2007
Looking for an easy way to record your off-road adventures? GlobalSat is about to release a GPS data logger that can record up to 50,000 points and output that data in various formats, including Google Earth's KML format. It's not a replacement for a traditional GPS receiver (it has no information or map screen) but it would be a great tool for anyone who is serious about tracking their 4x4 trips.
GlobalSat DG-100 is a GPS data logger that records track data from the received GPS signal. With a GPS logger and antenna built in a miniature construction, DG-100 features an all-in-one, cost-effective GPS logger solution. The DG-100 records time, date, speed, altitude and GPS location at preset intervals. Based on the SiRF Star III chipset, DG-100 offers accurate position tracking capabilities. (SiRF Star III is used in the Garmin 60/76 x-series of GPS receivers and has proven to be highly effectively in holding onto satellite signals under heavy tree canopies).
All recorded GPS information can be downloaded to the computer. It is a convenient, economical way for later review of your recorded histories. Simply connect the DG-100 to your PC or Notebook, and then download the track-log to your PC for use with Windows based software utility. User can easily export the recorded points to Google Earth and Google Map. It is ideal application in fleet management, marine navigational aids, traveling and consumer personal use. You also can use the DG-100 as an USB GPS mouse. It is another good feature for DG-100. Amateur radio operators can use it to embed position data into radio transmissions.
