  • Gentlemen, this was quick.

    The conversion happens, the only thing is the output location. Search the path of the GPS Viewer / other paths to find the file. The .logg files are not getting stored at the location where your original file is taken from.

    E.g. you store the .log file on the desktop, then run the decompress and the .logg file is stored in the root path of the gps viewer itself.

    hope this helps. :-)

  • Hi Mike,

    wow, long time since your reply, but I am facing a similar issue as RodCole did. Maybe you have another idea.

    I am doing as expected. The Log Read Batch does work and a .log file is produced. When i run the Decompress, the explorer opens to select a file / store a file. The interesting thing is, that it says "save" instead of "run" or something similar. The program gives me "Decompress completed" but the file did not change. No additional .logg file no kml file...

    Any Idea? Could it be a problem of the version of the GPS viewer? Maybe there is an update available. I am using Skytraq 0.4.833 - Customer Release from 2007. Maybe a problem with my Windows 7?

    I will try with XP again and let you know! Maybe you have a hint...


  • quick question: as interface to my microcontroller i will use normal serial communication? I want to feed the MCU with position data and speed. that is the only way of getting data, right?

No public wish lists :(
