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.
