Ehh... this one does not do data logging la. :frus:

Yeah......this 737 purely for navigation, not track log. Act fast, contact the seller to change to 747 if your intention is to do data logging. :shock:


737 & 747 seem like the same...mine is for navigation only not for tracking and data logging...sorry for the mistake :oops:

A quick question, I've exported a track that I created today but mapsource could not read it. Is there any conversion program which will read the track exported by GPS PhotoTagger and reformat it into mapsource readable .gpx file?

Have you tried GPSBabel? Which format does it record to?

Cheers DVPro, will try to download gpsbabel. Searching the net, it seems there are few open source applications which could extract the logs from iBlue747.. the software I'm using right now is the one that came in the box called GPS Photo Tagger which could export into .gpx file .. but somehow, Mapsource could not open the file. I did another search on the net, it has something to do with the elevation data or something .. But I'm downloading few related software and see which one is the easiest to work with.

Usually GPSBabel is able to convert the GPX into Mapsource readable GPX.

Try to open your track with GPSMapEdit and export it as Garmin GPS database (*.gdb). Thereafter open *.gdb with MapSource.

This is even better .. inspected the track that I made on high speed, quite interesting :) Will try to map some part of Muar when I get back hopefully a week after next week. Will try to go on a low speed on my dad's Modenas ..

Just received my package a moment ago from the postman. Ordered last Saturday, received today, so exactly 7 days. The package got the checked by customs mark, so I guess it's confirm no problem for it to come into Malaysia. Credit card charged a total of US$75.98 (RM274.08). Not yet tested, just opened the package. Will test it soon enough. \:D/
