The set up guide, usb driver and firmware from locosys is here http://www.locosystech.com/product.php?zln=en&id=126
The GW52 has 5hz recording, making it more accurate for 2 seconds and alpha results.
The scrolling rate of the speed genie display is also adjustable. The optimum setting for this will be a personal thing, for this tired old brain I need it fairly slow, otherwise I can't process the info before it disappears. For younger brains this could be frustratingly slow, waiting for the window you want to come into view.
Real speed doesn't process 5hz alphas, I've found I get the best results with GPSResults and KA72 As long as it isn't a "short" alpha, GPSarPro also does an OK job.
It's not configured as a standard usb memory device, you need the GW52 utility to download your data and this only works in a windows environment, Mac users need the windows emulator.
When the GW52 is connected to the computer, it doesn't "show up" on the desktop or in windows explorer, You have to start the GW52 utility
Beneath "connection" you should be able to select "com ports". So far I've found the one displayed there works. You then press the "connect” button and with any luck the bottom window, should show you connecting to the device. Once that is successful, You can change the settings.
Logging = 5hz,There's also a "power off command", this seems to be the only way to turn the device off, otherwise it's in watch mode, which will drain the battery after some weeks, can't remember exact time, but I haven't had a problem so far leaving it in watch mode. Once you have had a sail, you can skip this page and go straight to "Log Data"
At "File Selection" you can hit the "Browse" button and navigate to where you want the file to be stored on your computer. Once you've sorted that hit the "Log Download" button and you should see a progress bar as it comes in.
