5Hz logging Columbus P-10 Pro

Posted by jack wu on

The Columbus flagship logger P-10 pro has been around for a while. It has excellent accuracy but its log frequency is only 1Hz. Today, I am very excited about getting the 5Hz firmware from Columbus GPS. The firmware(V1.3) increases the log frequency from 1Hz to 5Hz. Very cool stuff!  This could be a groundbreaking feature for some people. For example, the ones who are in the car racing industry. 


Below is a screenshot showing my test drive of P-10 Pro in 5hz mode. 

5hz Columbus P-10 Pro

P-10 pro maintains a high accuracy level and little drift. The track is far more smoother than other 5Hz/10hz loggers in the market. You can download the logger file here for further investigation.


I was told by the Columbus GPS engineer that the P-10 Pro 5Hz mode is designed/customized for high velocity scenarios(>20km/h). It is not recommended being used for the low velocity scenarios(<20km/h) which makes the P-10 pro reduce the accuracy & increase the drift. You always have the option to rollback to 1Hz mode by updating the config file. 


If you need the 5hz log mode for your P-10 pro, please follow the update instructions.
