DeLorme Blue Logger, my bad

 Blue Logger quarter

A comment in the Velocitek S10 entry reminded me of this DeLorme Blue Logger that I tested a couple of years ago. It’s a pretty powerful little gizmo for the money, but one thing I didn’t get into in the short review was the annoying file format it logs into. As I recall I had a devil of a time getting the data into non-DeLorme mapping programs, but that issue may now be easily solvable with some of the conversion programs we’ve discussed (though I haven’t checked). Apparently I also missed the fact that the real time Bluetooth NMEA 0183 output does not include the WAAS corrections, as discovered by a PMY reader. I don’t know why DeLorme did that, or if it’s still true.

  1. That is way to funny. After my comment on the other GPS logger you have on the front page, I did some searching and found the same device. 🙂
    plus: in place rechargable battery, battery life, blue tooth 50,000 data points.
    minus: not waterproof. 🙁 but thats ok, I own lots of dry bags and ziplok bags. 🙂
    I guess I know now, next time I will do a Panbo search before a google search. 🙂
    thanks Ben!
