I am pleased to announce that Medion has sent me devices to work on for full integration of LK8000.
The S3747 http://www.medion.com/de/electronics/prod/MEDION%C2%AE+GoPal%C2%AE+S3747+WEU/30011637A1
is water proof, for outdoor usage, with a 1800mA long lasting battery.
It is the same BV-3200 hardware.
Under direct sunlight is very good, quite like the FunTrek, although this is a bigger 3.5 inches screen. I shall make some pictures today.
Internally, this device has a pressure sensor, digital compass and 3 axis accelerometer, plus a temperature sensor, and BlueTooth audio (not sure if it does SPP for serial).
I still have to discover all features, so this is only a preview.
Thanks to Medion and Royaltek, I now have all necessary libraries and documentation to make use of internal sensors, and let LK take control of backlight, sound, baro altitude, and power supply, pretty quickly.
It would have been impossible in practice, without having one device to work on and test.
I know other manufacturers are working on more models, bigger screen, full sensor, and will come out with these devices in next months.

Hi, I bought new medion GoPal S3747 ...Do you have somebody instalation proces LK8000 into this device ?? Thank you a lot!

I did receive the unit.
Trying to unlock it, all described ways failed, as the software is somehow different.
Then I used the classic way:
- At the flash disk folder, I did rename the Menu.exe to another name (ex. menu-original), and I did paste there the Cmd2.exe that comes with LK8000, renaming it to Menu.exe. After restart, it did work, appearing the Windows Explorer.
I can now put LK800 working, as well as all other software, including the original; I just need for that to run the menu-original.exe.
It is not beautiful as a skin, but I will find one that works OK there.
Today I used it in my motorbike. The display is very good to read, I only need to turn it directly to sun and there comes the advantage of a transreflective screen.
The display is a bit small, only at the glider cockpit I can conclude.
I'm trying to find right now the correct port configuration and I will test communications with a LX20.

at the moment they are a lot of Medion S3747 devices directly from the Medion Ebay shop for sale in Ebay.de(http://www.ebay.de/itm/MEDION-GoPal-S3747-Outdoor-u-Strasennavigation-3-5-8-89cm-Touchscreen-W-EU-/350876485045?pt=DE_GPS_Navigationssysteme&hash=item51b1de45b5).
If somebody is interested outside of Germany or Austria let me know(PN)!!
It would be great to know how to bring a Desktop Icon at the main Desktop.
And how to configurate the Device-Setup to use also the baro-sensor.
When you choose at device the S3747, there is no GPS signal working(Generic; Com1; 19200; 8bit).

I bought one S3747, I'm wiating for it's arrival (indirect, as Medion shop only delivers to Germany and Austria.
Later I can post my opinion about it and instalation procedures.
||Posted - 22/10/2013 : 12:37:47
I'm also interested in the changes to bring the LK8000 Software and the Baro-Sensor to run on the S3747.
Would be great to post a manual for this.

How do you install the LK8000 on the Medion?
||Posted - 08/04/2013 : 17:21:59
I have tried about 14 days to force the Bluetooth to work in SPP (serial) mode.
I searched the internet, tried to install the various utilities, edit registry ...
When I make some changes to the registry for BT SPP, system must be restarted to apply.
The key problem is that they the system always starts up in its original form and all changes made before shutting down are lost.
I was angry, so I sold it and bought Holux 61CS which has a serial input.
I am informed that even tried glidertools but also unsuccessful.

I have no idea. But I would bet you cannot communicate with SPP.
||Posted - 08/04/2013 : 10:44:02
What profiles does the bluetooth stack come with? Can you communicate with a C-Probe or Sensbox via spp?

I use the BV3200 for trekking in the alps, and I set the backlight to be turned off after 15 seconds of no touch.
The display in full light is readable without need of backlight. The battery on this device and this configuration can last about 10 hours, with LK running and logging.
The only problem with this device is the glossy screen, which need an antiglare film also to protect the glass.
Very good unit for outdoor, snow, rain, etc.
The screen is larger than the funtrek, but not that good. Funtrek display is a piece of paper in the light.
I have replaced the Garmin 76CSX with this device for all-uses, because it is waterproof and has huge autonomy on its battery, and it has a barometric sensor.
The entire work around trekking mode for LK v4 has been done using this device, so it is absolutely fully supported.

How long will it run on his own battery? Is this about the same as with the funtrek? Can it communicate with the flarm? I am afraid the size of the Holux funtrek is too small for XC flying in a glider (e.g. check airspace). This unit is cheap and l think the size of the screen is big enough for me.

Maybe I'm explaining this wrong but the instructions here http://www.gauss-net.de/pna2.htm talk about a hidden button on the top left of a menu. I cant find this button anywhere to open explorer. I'm kinda stuck until I can get there...any help as to which menu it is?
||Posted - 01/02/2012 : 23:01:23
Negrosso, the BV3200 I have doesnt have the same menu structure as the medion. Do you know which screen the hidden menu is located in or a method to Miopocket it?
||Posted - 30/01/2012 : 23:07:14
In fact my BV3200 does not have that screen, and it is not an ANT device too.
But I think it makes no difference, being a CE you should be able to use LK there.
||Posted - 30/01/2012 : 22:43:33
I have the BV3200 and the process looks very different from the Medions German instructions (even with Google translate ;-)
The menus look different and I'm starting to wonder if there is a hidden menu at all?
