We have reviewed a number of their products of the last few years but the newly released Travel Recorder is the most fully featured receiver we have come across. The Qstarz BT-Q1000 features an outstanding endurance of 32 hours whilst also tracking 32 satellites but it also can log over 100,000 way points and has a POI button for immediately recording a point of interest with a push of a button. With built-in Google Earth integration this makes for a powerful combination.
So we took the Qstarz BT-Q1000 Double 32 Bluetooth GPS Travel Recorder for a long test drive and are bringing you this first review.
This great looking unit weighs just over half a kilogram, but also comes with an ultra slim 0.2mm aluminum plated QWERTY keyboard, which does not add to the device’s weight or thickness.
We'd love to bring you a review on this svelte beauty and see how it compares with the latest Flybook we reviewed.
Check out the details below.
Qstarz today introduced in their words: the world's first travel recorder GPS Data Log BT-Q1000 in Computex Taipei.
What this means is that you have a track logger and a navigation device in one which can be integrated with Google Earth and has an endurance of 32 hours. There are some very interesting features in this unit and we will have a full-on review for you pretty soon. We do know that it will be available in a week's time and will cost only USD $119.

The pockmarked minescape around Kalgoorlie slides by some 8000 feet below. I glance at the small screen cradled on my yoke: it’s reassuring for my passengers (as well as the designated driver!) to see the airplane symbol right on the track to Albany. For a change we have a tailwind as indicated by the wind barbs on the moving map and confirmed by a healthy groundspeed. I check the screen for recent rainfall activity up ahead after having updated the program with the latest Metars and TAFs. It’s time for another radio frequency change to keep in touch with Melbourne Centre as indicated by the passage of a thick blue line across my track on the display.
Life is glorious in the fast lane… and has become a lot easier with the latest release of PocketFMS.
Here is the second instalment of our review of the HG-100 Speed Meter from GlobalTop. In Part One, published last week, we gave you the unboxing and modus operandi -how it works- of this Head-Up Display. Now we will talk about the installation, test drives, availability and the all important Value for Money factor. And, oh yes, one of the test vehicles was a 1986 Ferrari....
It's one of the more innovative GPS products we have seen lately as it combines a Bluetooth GPS receiver with speed alerts and projects your speed and direction onto your windscreen.
Plus it works with the navigation software on your Smartphone or PDA!
This enables you to keep your eyes on the road when it is most needed and that's why we are testing this on a Ferrari.
Buckle in and come along for the ride!

The universal gripe about remote controls is that there are too many of them in the average household and they are too complicated to use. We want one device to control all the others.
Is that a pipe dream? Hardly. Universal controls have been around for quite some time with Logitech one of the key players in this field. Now they’ve brought out the ultimate control device: the Harmony 1000i Universal Remote. Capable of subduing every household and entertainment device within 10 yards! But how did I fare in subduing the Harmony? Well, that’s an entirely different story...
