I see a number of plot files in Plot Place with a recorded date of 30 Dec 1899. That has to be the earliest use of a GPS ever. I think this technology must have been kept secret for some time.

If this file is not a complete file recorded in OziExplorer moving map then it does not store the date in the file. Basically I use this to know if the plot file was recorded in Ozi. If you upload a track from GPS then the date does not come through also if you manually build the .pnt or .plt file it also does not store a date. So in a nut shell if the file is not 100% recorded in Ozi moving map then the date will default to base system date (computer day zero on this MS platfom) which is 30 Dec 1899. This is also true for altitude information. I need to know the difference as I am working to build 3D mapping and without altitude it does not work.

Gee David, I thought I was on to something there :)
Thanks for that. It would be nice to be able to differentiate between manually built files and real time recorded files which contain valuable info.
Thanks again.

David
I have noticed that the problem with the dates is when i save the log files on my GPS and then downloan them, the Active logs I download from the GPS have all the info date, time, dist, KPH,Hdg.
The other problem i have with Ozie CE is that it saves the log file evey time its hooked up to the GPS thats why such big files.
I'm sore like all of us we are all still learning?

Hi mad dog
I have have been the one up loading a lot of the Plot place files with the bad date as David says these are from my GPS which does not save dates or time, when I open these file in Ozie they have the opening time and date eg. todays
And I can assure you that they are all real time recorded trips.
We have just returned from a 3 week 11,000 km trip over to the east and had to e-mail my file to David which was save from my Garmin etrex to Ozie CE on a HP iPAQ 2210 the file is over 2.51 MB and will not upload so I have only up loaded the Garmin file at the moment

Thanks Richard that clears up my confusion when I was looking at one of your plots today. At first it seemed to be a manually created plot but then I noticed it contained altitude information. All clear now.

Richard, you have just returned from a trip over to the East. Maybe you were spotted in Hoddle St Melb by one of our members. Check out post 12945

I just checked a trip plan I made manually and it has altitude information it must be able to get it of the map but you need to check out the speed (KPH) I have never traveled at 600 KPH on land

Hmm, don't know how it could do that unless you have ozi 3d and the demm data and somehow it gets the altitude from that. The trouble with 600k on land is you don't get to see much :)
