Hello Ken,
I have used my Holux a couple of times now, and I love it. It gets satellites much faster, and I can keep a fix on the bus, where I could not usually with the Blue Logger. I also love the switch, it makes it easier to know that it is on or off.
The cool thing about the Holux, is if you are running out of power, you can charge it with the usb cable through the braillenote.
Well good luck with yours.

Robert, thanks for the heads up on the Holux. I went on line
and picked
one up for $112.00, which included a travel package. I seen them
listed as
low as $75.00 on EBAY but I haven't been successful negotiating
that web
site. I appreciate the offer to keep in touch with you regarding
the GPS
system. There is nobody around here, that I know of, that uses
the system.
Feel free to bug me at any time. How is your experience with the
Holux now
that you have had a few days to try it out? I never could figure
out why
Sendero supported the Bluelogger, due to the difficulty in
knowing whether
or not it was on. I have had difficulty with it from the start.
My son in
law and a blind computer technician who lives in Ashland have had
the same
difficulty with it. It wasn't a matter of holding the button dow
for thre
seconds. The dam thing would shut down before we could get
started. I hope
the Holux solves this problem. Anyone interested in buy a
Bluelogger? I
think Sendero should exchange them for the Holux, especially for
those of us
who had difficulty with them from the start.
Later,   Ken Gerlitz

Hello Ken,
You can purchase the Holux through the Sendero website, or you
can call
Sheila at Sendero and purchase it through her directly.
the number is 888-757-6810 ext. 102.
I have the blue logger, but at the csun conference, I saw the
Holux, and
spoke with Mike and Carl and was told that it would do better on
buses so
I purchased it.
I just received it Friday, so tomorrow will be the first test,
but I have
a friend who has it, and she is very happy. She used it on the
light rail
yesterday, and it gave her 9 satellites.
I think you will be happier with the Holux, because it has the
switch for
turning on where the blue logger does not.
If you have further questions, you can e-mail me off list, I
have been
using gps for almost 4 years, and I can do my best to help you.

Hi, I have the Bluelogger bluetooth device and I'm not very happy
with its
performance. Where do you purchase the Holux? Do you have to do
special to get the GPS to recognize the device? Will appreciate
any info.
you can provide to me regarding this receiver.

Hi folks!
I have just come back from an exploration of my area and took
the Holux
slim gp236 I purchased while at csun last week.
I have to report that not only did I receive a signal much more
but the very minimum of satellites I had while tracking was 9.
I can remember when we were thrilled with the old Atlas Speaks
gps if we
had 6 satellites, good, bad or indifferent.
It is just so nice to simply turn the receiver on and go.
