I'll charge it through the USB port of the PC even, but who wants to can buy along some of the many options charger with USB port available in DealExtreme (bought such a recently and speak of it in a future article).
The connection to the computer via Bluetooth is very quiet, just look at the devices and connecting device identified as “Holux M-1000C” accept and use the service “Serial port” with name “SPP Slave”. A COM port is created for the connection. Agora simply connect.

In the specifications we see that the Receptor GPS Bluetooth HOLUX M-1000C has 4MB of memory, which is sufficient to 200.000 log entries, or cam me to conclude that each input uses less than 20KB. For example, be configured or HOLUX M-1000C to make a record every 5 second 4MB capacity and 200.000 Records will be sufficient for most 11 log days. If you set to make a record every 10 deslocados meters, capacidade to be sufficient to 2.000 Km. It is enough memory.
