  Q&A

Q1
What's the difference between NAV and LOG?
A1
NAV : BT-Q1000XT can be used to navigate with handheld devices (PDA / Smartphone / Laptop), but the data log function is disabled.
LOG : BT-Q1000XT can be used to record your travel path and for navigation simultaneously.

Q2
I lost my travel charger and battery. Where can I find replacements for both?
A2
DC Input range of BT-Q1000XT is 4.5~5.5V. You can also use a common mini USB cable to charge your unit via the PC. Besides, the battery for BT-Q1000XT is compatible with Nokia phone series. The battery model is BL-5C.

Q3
How can I know if my memory is full?
A3

If you see the orange GPS light is turning from orange to solid red, then it means the memory is full.



Q4
Can the logged data be downloaded by Bluetooth?
A4
Actually it's okay for Q1000XT to download data via Bluetooth interface. However, since it is not stable and may have lower download performance than USB interface. We don't officially admit this feature.

Q5
How can I adjust my device to 5Hz mode?
A5

Please download the tool, ”QstarzGPSView” from our website to adjust.



Q6
My navigation software does not support baud rate 115,200. How can I make it work via USB interface with Qstarz GPS?
A6
When Qstarz GPS is connected via USB interface, the baud rate is fixed and should be set to 115200. If your software does not support this baud rate, please connect the device via Bluetooth interface whose baud rate is changeable.

Q7
When I use QTravel software to read log from device, it appears "No Data in Device." Why?
A7
Q1000XT will not log invalid GPS data (GPS with no fix). So please make sure to log valid GPS data under open sky environment. If the logger still cannot log, please perform a reset in QTravel -> Config GPS.

Q8
My Travel Recorder cannot log 5Hz data?
A8
The update rate stands for the rate of GPS refreshing NMEA data received from satellites. Thus 5Hz update rate only means GPS can receive or refresh NMEA data 5 times per second, and it's irrelevant with 5Hz logging.

Q9
How can I set the time schedule function?
A9
Please set the BT-Q1000XT from Qravel->Config GPS->Schedule. Select the schedule you want, and change device switch to “NAV” mode. It will enter into sleep mode after 10 minutes for saving power and it will only wake up and start to record data when the time meets your preset time schedule.
