Hi all
When ever i try to import a OziExplorer Track Point File Version 2.0
WGS 84
Altitude is in Feet
Reserved 3
0,2,255,OziCE Track Log File,1
0
-31.9632367, 115.9437717,0, 124.7,38205.9417593 ,060804,223622
for example, there is nothing to see there is a file to save but when I do, it will not open.
I don't do this that often but yesterday someone had a link to Lcool and i was reading there notes on the double Simpson crossing, i tried to copy and paste the track so I could see were they traveled while reading, then spend the rest of the trying to get them to work. (another hard day at home).
If anyone can it will be much appreciated
Regards
Richard
ps. I have tried saving my plt file as text and importing them still no workers

Richard, I just loaded a .plt file, exported it as a .txt file and then imported it all ok. I don't usually do this either.

Assuming you are using import and export for the .txt file and not load and save there can only be something wrong with the format of the .txt file you are trying to import.

This is the format of the .txt file that worked for me.

Thanks Ray
I tried your way and it works OK
I see what some people mite be doing.
That is opening the plt file as text files then copy & pasting or saving them as text files
Which is the wrong format for Ozie
it was worth a try

Richard...So the problem was that you were trying to import it as a text file? The data you entered above opens ok when saved in notepad as a *.plt file as ..

Track Point File Version 2.0

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

file/save as
a box will pop up where you can specify where you want it saved to along with a name and extension of your choice

or....right click on the file in windows explorer and hit rename, give it any name you like with a .plt extension

You've confused me Richard. I downloaded the file and it opens in Ozi just fine.

Hi Everybody,
Loading the above .PLT file into my Oziexplorer has shown me a problem I haven't come across before!
I have several types of maps, HEMA GDT, 1:250000, 1:50000 of South OZ, NASA sat images. I tried to do a track replay using the "day1.plt" and all I got was a rapid loading of first the 1:250000 Birdsville map and then the 1:250000 Betoota map and then back again. Upon checking the calibration points, I found the the Birdsville map points are quite a ways in from the edge of the map, in fact Birdsville is in "No Mans Land" where going by calibration points, it's not on either map, hence the rapid swapping of maps in track replay!
I am going to have to re-do the points so that the points are closer to the edge of the map and check out some more maps to see how common this will be.
Just a FYI!
Regards,
Michael.
