Q1. I lost my travel charger and battery. Where can I find replacements for both?

DC Input range of BT-Q1200 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-Q1200 is compatible with Nokia N73. The battery model is BP-6M.


How can I know if my memory is full?


If you see the Log LED is steady lighted up, which means the memory is full.


Can the logged data be downloaded by Bluetooth ?


Actually it's okay for Q1200 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.


The Utility Software V3 does not display properly on my Windows XP/Vista. How can I fix this problem ?


The font size setting of your Windows XP/Vista is not standard. Please switch to the standard mode (96DPI).

For Windows XP:

1. Right-click on a blank area of your desktop and choose "Properties"

2. Click on the "Settings" tab, click on the "Advanced" button, and examine the "Font Size" box.

3. Click in the "Font Size" box, choose standard 96 DPI , and click on the "OK" button.

For Windows Vista :

1. Right click on desktop and select "Personalize" from the drop down list.

2. When "Personalize" window opens click "Adjust font size (DPI)"

3. In "DPI Scaling" dialogue box there are two default options to select, which are 96 (DPI) and 120 (DPI). Please select "Default scale (96 DPI)"

I have already followed the standard procedure to make connection via utility software V3, but I still have a problem when trying to download data to PC and perform other function also, such as setting and erase. What should I do ?


Please make sure that BT-Q1200 connects directly to your PC without going through any intermediate device such as USB hub, or change a USB cable .


I use the "Scan" function under PC Utility V3 to connect my BT-Q1200 with PC, but errors always occur during executing other functions ?

A6. You may have too many devices occupying com ports and thus making the "Scan" function detecting the wrong device to connect. Please check the Com Port manually by going to "Control Panel/Systems/Hardware/Device Manager/Ports(COM & LPT)/ CP210x USB to UART Bridge Controller" .

My Q1200 is unable to log anymore. What's wrong?


Check if your Q1200's memory is full or the status in PC utility V3 software "Data Log List?appears to be "Error!?or not. Both can be resolved by performing a soft reset at PC Utility software V3 "Data Log List?-> "Reset.?/span>


How can I adjust my device to 5Hz mode?


Please download the tuner tool, QstarzGPSView, from our website to adjust. More detailed instruction please refer to Q1300 user's manual 10-5, other models as well.


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


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.


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.
