Yesterday was the first test of the handheld GPS logger. It took about 30 seconds to get a GPS fix once the device was powered. I practiced with five logs around the perimeter of my 30x10m back yard. The plot of those five locations is shown in the image above. The level of positional accuracy achieved should be sufficient for the biodiversity survey purposes of this device.
