Ok Guys,

Thanks for all the help with external GPS, however it is not working for my Holux 241+ so i have decided to return it. (probably faulty device as the menu is also not complete)

Two weeks ago i have made 300 photo's in the Czech republic and i had to manually add GPS coordinates for 50 of them and the ones with GPS where not accurate (off by +- 30 meters).
I feel i have been very patient with the new unleashed but i am done for now, i just need reliable & accurate GPS tagging.
Fortunately i was able to find a used unleashed 200+ and now GPS again working fine for me.

The new unleashed is going back in its box and will wait for better firmware or until i have to make timelapse/long exposure recordings.

I am sure you will be able to solve the external GPS issues in time and hope you will support the Qstarz devices again .

p.s. It seems the company behind Holux is in heavy weather at the moment see https://sclate.com/taiwan/the-veteran-g ... logy-news/

Hi Siem,

Sorry to hear that. Yeah, It does sound like Holux had a problem. We bought 3 for development and testing, and they all seem to be working fine.

That is indeed very interesting news about The company behind Holux! I hope they'll make it out of that dilemma! The Market for GPS devices like the ones they made is becoming smaller and smaller, as everyone is making due with the built-in GPS in Smartphones...

We're going to have another look at Qstartz devices (though they do seem to be overpriced for what they are), as well as Garmin, and we'll keep asking Bad Elf to finally release a BLE Version of their GPS Pro line.
