Quanum GPS Logger V2

With Backlit LCD Display NEO-6 U-Blox

Splash

Compact, affordable and records useful information—the Quanum GPS Logger V2

We have all heard the “fishing stories” out at the field and on the track, “My RC car does 120mph” or “My ducted fan accelerates going vertical!”…well, it’s time to prove it!

The Quanum GPS Logger V2 is a stand-alone device that packs the power of a U-BLOX NEO-6 GPS receiver, and records everything from; distance traveled, start and end positions, UTC time stamps, course and speed…and the infamous MAX speed the logger reached. The data can be viewed on the integrated backlit LCD or the NEMA data can be downloaded to a PC and plotted out on map sites such as Google Earth. To save weight the logger gets its power from a spare channel from your receiver so no additional battery is needed.

There are endless uses, from finding your model's maximum speed and utilizing the hard-data to refine your set-up, and of course there is provable bragging rights you could flaunt around on YouTube! Heck, you could even attach a small battery pack and drop it in your kids backpack and see if they really went to the library after school or not…The Quanum GPS Logger is just one of those tools you should just have in your tool box for when hard-data is better than your calibrated eyeball.

Too pricey for my "needs", but it looks like a nice product. If it drops to about $30 I'll pick one up.

I don't see much advantage over my Garmin ForeRunner 201, perhaps this one is lighter.

How about size? Is the Garmin smaller than the Quanum?

There is no altimeter, how can it tell if your jet does gain speed going vertical?

If it's got an altimeter, I'm all in.

GPS has altitude , this logger store NMEA, so via a PC you can read the logged altitude.

Still it would be nice if it would record max , min and current altitude (even if GPS altitude is not very accurate)

If you have already a GPS unit used by some multi-copter ... and you want to place this GPS everywhere.

All you need is small 1S lipo, 1 OpenLog (25$ on ebay) and your GPS ... connect them together, and you have your cheap small GPS logger

I made one in this way, and it end up less then 20g unit

I may pick this up for my glider to see how high it's going. I was thinking about getting just an altimeter, but considering it's GPS as well I think I could find a few uses. And it costs almost as much as an HK altimeter alone.

Regret having bought this crap...

Shows logger start and end position (Without hight!), distance, total logtime, maximum speed and last course (ofcause identical with way home). that´s it...

When connected to PC, it shows actual Time & Date (GMT)...no way of getting Data from it to PC...

When asking Hotline, HK admits it to be a "future feature"....

It´s 43.8gr...

Sorry to hear it ...

It is really wrong from HK to advertise a future feature ... the reading of the log from PC was in the current product description.

Quote:
*Note: To download the NMEA file to your computer for history mapping, you will need a standard RS-232 cable - not included. All other information can be viewed via the integrated LCD and menu.
Maybe the community can make a better firmware sooner then HK .. but I'm afraid this is not a really popular item, since it is overpriced for what it does ... especially now that a GPS cost 16$, LCD cost 3$ and a capable CPU cost 3$ ... so a DIY can cost as low as 22$

Plus a used Garmin Forerunner entry level wristwatch GPS costs about the same, and really has a link to pc function. Plus it has it's own power supply.

A used (not abused) ForeRunner 101 will still be a lot better than a new Quanum logger, and can (or at least coulb) be found for similar prices. But indeed, if you want to compare new vs new, the Quanum will be a lot cheaper. On the other hand, the Garmin has a light built in battery that gives up t0 13 hours of operation, which makes it a convenient package.
