  • For users of bluetooth serial devices such as the HOLUX M-1000, there simply is no "GUI" way to get it connected as far as I can see. I have found, instead, that I need to resort to the command line to get things working… and that they work "old school" style — reliably and effectively. You get things going as follows:

    Code: Select all
    $ hcitool scan
    Scanning …
    00:1B:C1:03:21:87 HOLUX_M-1000

  • To use the software in Linux, you must configure WINE.
    1. Start WINE Configurator
    2. In WINE Configurator, click Add Application
    3. Browse to the eztour software (drive_c\Program Files\HOLUX exTour\DL\ezTour_DL.exe) and click Open
    4. ezTour_DL.exe should appear as an application in WINE Configurator
    4.5 Select the ezTour_DL.exe application in WINE Configurator
    5. Select Windows Version = Windows XP
    6. Select the ‘Libraries’ tab in WINE Configurator
    7. Click the ‘New override for library’ drop-down and choose dwmapi
    8. Click Add
    9. Click Edit
    10. Change to Native (Windows)
    11. Click OK

    The software should now work in WINE!. I have not yet worked out how to get Google Maps to appear, but you can export the trails and logs to a .kmz file to view in Google Earth.
