8. Why ezTour program can't display the speed after M-241 download track logs finished?
The M-241 of old Firmware V1.12, it didn't support to record speed data into track logs therefore ezTour software couldn't show any speed variation。 But we had modified this issue in new FW_V1.13, new firmware had supported to record speed data Then ezTour software would display the speed variation data. So, please go to Holux website to dowonload latest FW_V1.13 and upgrade your M-241. By the way, you also can download latest version ezTour_V1.04 to updade your laptop and check again.

9. I bought ezTour software, why it could't connect with M-241 but the original utility (Holuxlogger utility) could connect with M-241?
Most of these issues could be the driver didn’t install completely or your laptop had already included other Silicon version driver to conflict, therefore the laptop can’t recognize the M-241 device.
(1)First, we would suggest please try to change another USB port or laptop to connect the M-241 by USB cable when it is power off). After that you can check out whether the problem still persists, if it still didn't work please try to use second solution.
(2)Please review the “Add / remove program” items on your laptop, and remove all of driver files that the first name has show the “Silicon Lab…..”, then restart your computer and try to re-install the driver with attached Tool CD or download on Holux website~
You also can try to refer File:M-241 driver installation and ezTour program connection.pdf, it will introduce the re-setup driver procedure.
10. I have tried all of the USB connection way. But they are not useable. How can I rescue my M-241 track ?
Hello, You can try Bluetooth connection to read M-241 track. Normally use, I do not suggest you that you use Bluetooth connection to read M-241 track.Because the failure rate is high. But in the emergency status you can try to it.
11. Does M-241 can connect to Iphone or Ipad by bluetooth?
Please try to refer as below forum link~ Apple Prodcut information, it had some information and description.
12. Does M-241 supports to work with the MAC or Android system platform?

Q & A (Chinese)
1. 請問, 我不能更新的M -241firmware。如何更新?
M- 241 V1.13增加了一個功能，記錄的“速度“的數據記錄到日誌,總記錄點也將減少至約10萬點。 Holuxlogger Utility_184.108.40.206只能搭配V1.13！ Holuxlogger Utility_220.127.116.11只能搭配V1.12！
2. 請問, M-241電池能夠使用多久的時間?
M-241電池可以使用多久與電池的廠牌及容量有關,全新的電池, 一般來說7-9小時都有可能。 請儘量不要使用充電電池, 因為使用一段時間之後充電電池會因為充電不足造造成電壓降低。
3. 請問, M-241與M-241C跟ezTour 連接失敗要如何解決?
您好,可以嘗試以下步驟解決. 1.使用另外一條USB 線連接. 2.換一個USB電腦插槽連接. 3.將已經安裝的USB驅動程式解除安裝並至以下網站下載新的驅動程式. 4.檢查M-241目前與電腦連接時所佔用的COM號碼,ezTour切換到手動設定. (預設是自動掃描GPS記錄器) 5.更改目前M-241所使用的COM port number. 比如目前M-241的COM port號碼 是COM 10,請嘗試改成COM2,COM3. http://www.holux.com/JCoreTW/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=340
4. M-241 Bluetooth無法建立連接之問題?
您可以先試著把電池取下，讓機器於無電池的狀態下靜置1天，這樣有機會讓機子恢復成”出廠初始設定值”。 然後請您嘗試與別台電腦或電子產品(有內建藍芽功能的)連結，並利用”MiniGPS Viewer” 測試軟體再確認看看；您的藍芽 GPS接收器是否可以順利連接、並是否可接收到GPS衛星訊號。 若測試的結果一切正常，那您的藍芽GPS接收器便沒有問題。 若測試的結果仍出現相同的問題，那您的藍芽GPS接收器可能就有問題。 我們會建議您直接與您的購買商(或經銷商)聯繫，請他們幫您處理確認或進行維修程序。
目前M-241搭配之ezTour軟體是無法支援直接在MAC的系統上操作的；但MAC的作業系統中，有一模擬Window視窗功 能，此功能應是可以來安裝操作ezTour軟體的。另外您可於網路上搜尋一軟體叫<BT747>的，此軟體於網路 上標注可支援MAC系統來下載軌跡紀錄器之資料；您可自行於網路上搜尋，並下載下來測試看看。 您可參閱此網站之相關說明連結~ http://www.bt747.org/ BT747 軟體之下載連結~ http://sourceforge.net/projects/bt747/files/
6. 藍芽GPS接收器內的WASS / EGNOS功能如何啟用?
此種DGPS輔助GPS定位精準度的功能，您不需做任何設定；只要您的機器到該系統之所在地~ 你若在美國當地，便可以收到WAAS之衛星訊號。 你若在歐洲當地，便可以收到EGNOS之衛星訊號。 它不需做任何設定、便可自動設接收此訊號。 它只會在您的導航軟體中，顯示不同編號的衛星訊號。
請您一下述之步驟做一次，以確保您更新firmware之動作有順利完成~ 請先重新開機M241，接著按M-241上之“menu”鍵 → “設定” → “原廠設定” → 選擇 “是”，這樣更新程序才算完成．然後您 可再確認看看，問題是否已經解決。 若測試的結果仍出現相同的問題，那您的M-241可能就有問題。 我們會建議您直接與您的購買商(或經銷商)聯繫，請他們幫您處理確認或進行維修程序。
由於M-241之前舊版FW_V1.12，本身記錄之資料中，便無速度值之data；故即使搭配ezTour共同使用，也無法顯示出速度之 資料。但此問題我們已於新版FW_V1.13版裡修改加入了，已有支援記錄速度的數值，故於ezTour軟體上，便能看到速度值之 數據。所以請至Holux官網上下載更新V1.13版之FW，且可同步下載更新ezTour_V1.04版本來搭配使用。 M-241~ http://www.holux.com/JCoreTW/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=340 ezTour~ http://market.holux.com/Software/SU/
9. 購買ezTour軟體並安裝於電腦後，ezTour卻無法與M-241連結；但舊有的Holuxlogger utility仍可正常連接?
(2)請至您電腦管理員裡之＜新增移除＞選項，將您之前灌的Silicon Lab…的驅動程式先移除；記得移除過程時，M-241不要與電腦連接上。移除完畢後，再請用ezTour軟體之內件驅動程式 或 至Holux官網下載對應之驅動程式來重新安裝~
12. 請問, M-241是否可以與iPhone或iPad的藍芽連接?
此部分請參閱此連結之討論區~ Apple Prodcut information，有細部的說明。
