What's the difference between NAV and LOG?


NAV : BT-Q1000X can be used to navigate with handheld devices (PDA / Smartphone / Laptop.), but the data log function is disabled.

LOG : BT-Q1000X can be used to record your travel path and for navigation simultaneously.
Q2 I lost my travel charger and battery. Where can I find replacements for both?
A2 DC Input range of BT-Q1000X is 4.5~5.5V. You can use a travel charger which support DC output range from 4.5~5.5V. You can also use a common mini USB cable to charge your unit via the laptop. Besides, the battery for BT-Q1000X is compatible with Nokia phone series. The battery model is BL-5C.
Q3 How can I know if my memory is full?

If you see the orange GPS light turns from orange to solid red, then that means the memory is full.

Q4 Can the logged data be downloaded by Bluetooth ?
A4 Actually it's okay for Q1000X to download data via Bluetooth interface. However, since it is not stable and with lower download performance than that of USB interface, we don't officially admit this feature.

How can I adjust my device to 5Hz mode?


Please download the tuner tool, QstarzGPSView, from our website to adjust.


My navigation software does not support baud rate 115,200. How can I make it work via USB interface with Qstarz GPS?

A6 When Qstarz GPS is connected via USB interface, the baud rate is fixed and should be set to 115200. If your software does not support this baud rate, please connect the device via Bluetooth interface whose baud rate is changeable.

When I use V4 SW to read log from device, it appears "No Data in Device." Why?

A7 Q1000X will not log invalid GPS data (GPS with no fix). So please make sure to log valid GPS data under open sky environment. If the logger still can not log, please perform a reset in V4 SW -> Config GPS.
Q8 My Travel Recorder can not log 5Hz data?

The update rate stands for the rate of GPS refreshing nmea data received from satellites. Thus 5Hz update rate only means GPS can receive or refresh nmea data 5 times per second, and it's irrelevant with 5Hz logging. So far all of Qstarz data loggers are only capable of 5Hz update rate but not 5Hz logging.

Q9 Why am I getting the Google Maps API error message pop up and cannot use the map function, what can I do?
A9 Please download and update to the latest version of the software from our website to solve this problem.
