It is possible to see on this Geiger counter total dose recived?
I mean - if I carry it with me in "danger zone", after "trip" can I check what was tota dose in uSv?

No.

Because the total radiation received is calculated based on your body weight, height.

Yes, you're right, but...
If Geiger counter is exposed for example 1uSv/h for 1 hour It will receive 1uSv dose. So I would like to know it.
Terra-P can gives you information about total dose in particular time - why Terra can do it, but GQ not?

That is the simple way. Yes. The GQ is able to add that.

You could make a timed count and then simply use the average (if it's working correctly in the new fw) to calculate the dose.
Avg times total hours = dose, I think.

Oh yes! I can also count beeps and divide it by seconds/minutes and get CPM/CPS :-)
Supprt told me about 2 months ago, that they will implement in FW "dosimeter mode" and options with faster (but less accurate) uSv/h (CPM) count. GQ is much slower than for example Terra-P, and Terra-P has also dosimeter mode.
They told me, to do it within couple weeks, but till now no new features in FW :-(

Good question :-) Answer is - GQ can be connected to PC.
But, if support promised to add this feature within near future (it's only software problem) it will be added - I believe.
After this upgrade it will be much better then Terra.

Well, it could be another selling point for GQ. Maybe they'll do it.
