That user guide is on the provided CD. But for now you can end up with multiple tracks per journey, and true to Murphy only one track at a time can be exported to Google Earth. Mode switching should be seamless, and I hope Globalsat can implement that in a future version. The battery compartment cover is not overly user friendly, and did not survive a little drop oops either. The usage of a low power GPS chipset allows uninterrupted logging for 32 hours.

However, Globalsat have cunningly incorporated a little magnet into the body of the DG, and this engineering trick keeps the USB cable firmly in place when it is not in use. Also, an ultra low power or maybe even globalsat dg-100 motion sensor could be fitted to switch the logging off when the device has been stationary for a longer time.

I globalsat dg-100 liked the fact that the low battery globalsat dg-100 comes relatively early, giving you enough time to react.

It comes provided with mAh rechargeable batteries. If you are happy with that feature set then the DG is certainly worth considering.

You can either affix the globalsat dg-100 with the provided double sided tape or – less permanent – with a litte provided screw. The screen dg–100 tells you how much memory is used. Logging can be done in a very flexible way – by distance, by time, or even with a Push-to-log globalsat dg-100 most other data loggers are missing.


Instead, you need to install the Globalsat dg-100 driver, again either from the web or from the globalsat dg-100 CD. When the unit is dropped it will likely also stop logging because it may switch off the batteries may rg-100 contact briefly. Specifications Here are the details that are listed in the user manual.

This makes it completely impossible to use the DG in a fixed car installation scenario.

This means a permanent in-car installation is not possible. This is a sure recipe for confusion and lost data.

Globalsat tried to use carriage returns but those are not supported by Google Earth, and come out as squares. That’s very nice but you don’t globalsat dg-100 know what these modes represent until you read the user guide. Have any comments about this review?

Note that there is no option to specify if you want to overwrite old data. They are not entirely accurate. Globalsat dg-100 the device off while connected to USB is not easy either – it is not really clear if you actually managed to switch the globalsat dg-100 off or not because the LEDs are overridden by the applied power.

I hope Globalsat can fix that weakness in future versions.

But for now you can end up with multiple tracks per journey, and true to Murphy only one track at a time can be exported to Google Earth. The mode slider is very easy to operate, also inadvertently. globalsat dg-100

Globalsat dg-100 the memory is full, logging will stop. Well, you need to use the data logger program to switch the DG to “G-Mouse” mode and back. The DG is powered globalsat dg-100 two AA batteries.


To add insult to injury the device switches off when USB power is applied. Switching between A,B and C will not actually globalsat dg-100 the logging mode – for the logging to resume with the globalsat dg-100 parameters you have to power cycle the data logger!

The logger would still be in standby mode, with a GSM module powered by the solar cell, so that you globxlsat wake it globalsat dg-100 and configure it via SMS On the side of the device is the mode switch. Stock Alkaline AA batteries will last quite a bit longer.

I will change the mode to log by distance and specify a globalsat dg-100 distance, otherwise I will never fill up that dg–100 I would expect that future data loggers could be equipped with solar cells to extend the battery life more. You can rename the modes and change their parameters later. I don’t globalsatt I like that approach – I would want to be globalsat dg-100 to start a new track by power cycling the device like it is done on the Wintec WBT The A,B and C modes can be used to globalsat dg-100 either by distance or by time.
