Re: Dual XGPS160

I've checked the Dual site and I can't find anywhere where it is revealed that their app is only for the iPad. Given all the mentions of compatibility with iPhones and all the iPhone apps that it can be used with does anyone find this just a little disingenuous? iPhone/iPod touch & Android versions...

Re: Dual XGPS160

No coatings on windows at home. Unit gets a fix even in centre of the room. Outside the fix time is amazingly fast. I used it at a track day last week and it worked flawlessly all day. Left it turned on from about 9:15 to 5 o'clock and still apparently had over 40% battery left according to the Dua...

Re: Dual XGPS160

How long should the battery hold a charge when the unit is not in use? Mine seems to discharge quickly, less than one day. The battery should retain charge for days if not weeks when it's turned off. I'd suggest letting it run down completely, then plug it in and let it charge 24 hours (make sure t...

Re: Dual XGPS160

It's working fine. I suspect there is some sort of coating on our office windows because in the car I got a fix in seconds and the same at home. It was hardly turned on and the light was solid green. Happy days. :D I believe you're right about the window coatings. We have a reflective metallic coat...

Re: Dual XGPS160

Yes, it's Bluetooth only for iPhones or other mobiles. The USB connector is just for charging. However, I'm not sure about when connected to a PC via USB as I've never connected my 150 to a PC. Thanks for the info. I just checked with the engineers on this, and you are actually able to stream GPS d...

Re: Dual XGPS160

One of the features that is attracting me to the 160 is the ability to record a route without using HLT. Sometimes that is all I want to do. Can you connect the 160 to a PC and download the recorded route or is it compulsory to have either an android or iOS device to access this feature? What forma...

Re: Dual XGPS160

Thanks to Harry for pointing me to this thread... (Full disclosure: my name is Greg Lukins and I oversee the GPS product line for Dual Electronics. I'm not here to advertise - just to help answer product questions.) Connection of any Bluetooth device to iOS 6.1.3 is problematic. The best thing to do...
