Evermore GT-800BT GPS

3. Using the device

Apparently the Evermore GT-800BT can be used like any other GPS receiver connected to a variety of devices via BlueTooth, or as a GPS logger. Note that the Bluetooth enabled device has a passkey that you must type before you can pair with them. In our case, the passkey is four zeros (0000).

On the top of the device we find the Power button (clear plastic) and two indicator LEDs. To turn on the datalogger you have to push and hold the Power button for 3 seconds or more. This is a security mechanism that protects from non-intentional GPS activating the GPS unit. Once switched on, the data logger is activated on its own. The satellite LED will flash in green as soon as the GPS signal is fixed.

A "fix" is when the GPS has located the satellites and knows their position. After the power is turned on, press and hold the Power button for another 3 second to turn on the Bluetooth function. The Bluetooth LED will light solidly until the Bluetooth achieves pairing, and then the LED will start flashing slowly. Press and hold the Power button for more than 3 seconds and the device will be turned off.

In order to use the advanced features of the Moremapper included software, you will need to have a digital camera that will take pictures. A good idea is to make sure that the camera time is correct, according to the local time. Notice that if your digital camera is old you might need to reset the date after removing the battery.

Taking pictures in car while moving may result in tracking inaccuracies, so slowing down or even stopping the car before taking the picture would be a good idea. If you already have older pictures and you need to use them, you can still change the date/time within the Evermore Moremapper software.

Another neat feature of the Evermore GT-800BT is that it can be used to upload the logged files into the PC via the included USB cable. You don't need to install any additional drivers, just make sure the device is powered on before connecting the USB to the main computer. After moving the .EVR file to your PC you can later open it with the Evermore Moremapper software.
