I still use the Holux M241 too. There don’t work properly because of date offset by 1024 weeks (different GPS epoch), but navigation via serial communication (USB or BT) protocol still works as soon as datalogging (with 1024 weeks offset naturaly). Since I haven’t internet connection on the PC with EZ Tour, there’s no matter the maps don’t work, they didn’t work never (in fact, this sw I use only for download the records). Datalogs I show and process in different software. In fact now I have different datalogger with record on the SD card from my own develop (last version use adruino mega, previous versions was based on atmega644 microcontroller without arduino), the Holux was my first GPS and now its is only used as backup recorder and mainly for real-time show of the position etc. because it is simply connectable to the PC or notebook.
I still use Holux M-241 Plus. ( red/white color ). Since ezTour is not working anymore I only use it to store data gpx/kmz format and display it in other software.
Is there a reliable archive of the eztour software? Sad to see the support go away.
ezTour no longer shows the map. It tries to open http://www.marathonsworld.com/userData/TGV/ezTour/44988192.html but apparently this website partner stopped the service…
