I also bought the Wintec WBT-100 Logger in order to compare it with the Sony GPS-CS1 Logger from my previous test.

Included in delivery:

  • 1 x Wintec WBT-100 Logger device
  • 1 x Car charger
  •  1 x USB cabel
  • 1 x Charger
  • 1 x Manual in English
  • 1 x CD Software to read and configure the Logger

Positive is that it uses a normal cell phone battery so that you can easily replace the battery with a cheap one bought on ebay.

So I started the same test than I did with my Sony CS1 Logger. I walked to the beach volleyball place but it took a while until the WBT logger had the GPS signal. Even though, it has a lot of signal lights that showed that there are enought satellits available…

 

Test Beach Volleyball:

I took a picture from each corner of the beach volleyball place.

Test Park bench:

I had a rest on a park bench for about 15 minutes. Therewith I wanted to see how precise the logger is.

Unfortunately the access of the Logfiles is not that easy compared to the Sony GPS-CS1 Logger. You cannot use it like a USB Stick, as you have to use the program “G-Tool” that reads the logfile from the WBT-100. It took 388 seconds for 22.150 log points, that is much longer than the download of the logfile from the Sony CS1. As the log is not in a NMEA 0183 the further processing of the data gets more complex. The G-Tool allows you to export the file to following formats:

  • Google Earth (kmz)
  • Virtual Earth (ve-htm)
  • GPX (single-gps)
  • GPX (multi-gps)
  • TWD67TM2 (twd67tm2-txt)
  • Papago format (papago-txt)
  • OziExplorer (multi-plt)

Unfortunately I did not figure out how to connect my pictures to the logfile of the WBT-100. I tried several things, including  GPS-BABEL and the Sony GPS Image Tracker Software but I did not work.  Therewith I would not recommend to use this device as the is no easy way to connect your pictures to the logfile.
