The DL-200BT is an interesting device, combining two function, that of GPS tracker and logger. The device can be used either stand alone (logger) or connected to a PDA/Laptop with the BT interface for GPS tracking. The retail package is complete, with all needed software and cables. On the performance side, Evermore uses a custom chipset that compared with SiRF III GPSs, offers much lower performance. While the satellite signals were very high, the overall tracking was average with around 60% 3D Fix. This may improve with the addition of an external antenna.
The retail price (~US$150.00) makes it higher in price than an ordinary BT GPS device, but this is justified since the devices is also a logger. Obviously then, the device is targeted at people who wish to track their routes, logging them so that they can analyze them at a later time. If you have this need, the Evermore DL-200BT device is just what you need.
