4.0 out of 5 stars Bluetooth GPS and permissions, 13 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a high performance GPS to go with an Android tablet; internal GPSs tend to get poor comments. The GPS to sit on top of the panel in a Cessna and give me moving map capability and no cables. The Qstarz works great (at the 1 Hz speed - a cable usb connect is required for the 10Hz stuff). The Qstarz needs 'fake location' set to run as detailed in the booklet. Different apps require/use different permissions; so beware. I had to set 'fake GPS' permission on with a particular app to get it to work but other apps would not work with both setting set on.

The standard charger needs a 12 volts car 'lighter' supply; so it is charge it in the car or with a spare 12 volt battery. The internal battery lasts a good time; so fit for purpose!

3.0 out of 5 stars Apps compatability a challenge, 13 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the Archos specifically to run PocketFMS. The Archos was chosen for the screen brightness, 302 cd/m2, resolution 1024 and size, 7 inches. PocketFMS was to be bought off Google Play, chosen using my laptop on Google Play. I signed the Archos onto Google Play and the app had disappeared - it was was not compatible. I also needed a Bluetooth-GPS app and that was not compatible either (a fair number of apps fell into this category). I contacted Archos and asked why so many apps were not compatible with their hardware and I got a standard 'it is the app vendors problem, talk to them'. The app vendors do not know about individual hardware. The Archos meets my other requirements - impressive in fact. I got a copy of PocketFMS from their own web site and after some permission setting issues got it working on the Archos. Bottom line: check tablet and app are compatible before parting with the cash.
