I'm currently using BT747 for downloading GPS tracks from Holux M-1200E device via USB cable, and it works just fine. But my attempts to do the same via Bluetooth connection are unsuccessfull: it just does not see the logger on the COM port created by Windows XP for BT connection (the BT pairing & connectivity itself is fine).
I'm starting to think that BT part of that tracker can be used for live GPS data transmitting only, while its internal memory content isn't accessible from BT side, and this design is preventing me from downloading stored tracks.
Tested only with java Web Start. Command line for launcher:
In menus select:
Settings - Device Protocol - "Holux M-1000C / GPSport 245"
To connect to device via USB data cable (not USB power cable from HOLUX package):
or via blueman (pincode for pairing 0000):
"/dev/rfcomm0" "115200" (port must be not used by gpsd)
First of all, I want to say how well this software works, I made my first GPS-enabled Gallery yesterday without a glitch.
My camera is not GPS-enabled, so I used the M-241 logger & BT747 to attach GPS coordinates to each photo. Then it was only necessary to upload the photos into Menalto Gallery & set th map to show on the Album page.
For a while I wasn't figuring out what happened a while ago (between 2.x.1704 and 2.x.1887) which simply made gps data transfer not working with my Holux M-1000C, but yesterday I've been determined to look around the menus for new features which may have broken it and yes, there's a new device protocol called "Holux M-1000C", which was autoselected.
And it doesn't work.
Selecting old "Holux" (first option) just works.
