New Toy

I just received a new toy I have ordered for our upcoming vacation: A GPS data logger to allow geo tagging of my photos.

Globalsat GPS Data Logger I basically had the choice between this one and the Sony GPS CS1KA. After reading this review of the DG-100 (with a comparison to the Sony) I opted for the Globalsat one and found an online shop in Germany.

Two days later I got that beast. First test are quite impressive (haven’t tried to geo tag photos though). Only thing I found so far is that it takes quite a long time to come online, lock the sats and start recording.

Another pay-off compared to the Sony is that no geo tagging software is included, but there is a lot of stuff on the market. I will try them later on.

I am now very curious how this will work out for the photos on our Scotland trip…

  1. I ordered it at http://www.nomatica.de/. This is the German branch of a French shop. It was actually pretty cool, paying with PayPal and getting it the very next day.
    BTW: I tested it during my recent vacation and it worked pretty cool. I used the free locr app to geo tag my photos. Only thing that annoys me is that it takes quite a while to lock on to the sats.
