    Does anybody have experience using the i-Blue 747A+ with BT747 with a Macbook Pro (Fall 2008)?  I was wondering if the i-Blue 747A+ can download the logger data and be configured using bluetooth or is it limited to USB (installing the required drivers)?  Am I better off with the Qstarz Q1000X?

      Hi.

      No, not with the 747A+, but it looks its the same as the Qstarz BT-Q1000X (all infos that bt747 can read out are the same for both devices).  Under my MacOSX i can use the with the normal (universal) driver - see installation-description without problems. With cable. On MacOSX i don't try Bluetooth, but with the mobile phone the Bluetooth-download works. i will try this later.

      Kind regards, Dirk

      In my case, i use "/dev/tty.QstarzGPS-SPPslave-1" as port.

      Thanks. I just ordered from Semsons.com.  I will try to sync/configure using bluetooth and post my findings.
