Issue: speed tag is m/s

Hi Bob,

what is the name of that software?

No, but I could
  • add a switch
  • introduce a workaround specifically for that software

Of I course I like the second option more - all I need is some files from that software and hopefully a rather secure way to detect files written by it.

Hi Bob,

The software from MobileAction that comes with the I-gotU GT-120 called "@trip PC" and which also syncs photos to the GPS track record, and opens the route using Google Maps and satellites images.

You can actually download the software at:

I've added the raw material in the form of the bin and another file, as well as the exported CSV and GPX files for yesterday's driving. There are TWO separate trips in the one GPX and the one CSV file, but they are separated in the other two files. You can look to your heart's contentment. I've also written to Mobile Action in Taiwan with the statement that GPX 1.0 requires they save in m/s but who knows if that will do any good <grin>...

The GPX file starts with the following, and you can identify their software from the gpx creator line... where they specifically name themselves.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<gpx creator="Mobile Action http://www.mobileaction.com/" version="1.0" xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0/gpx.xsd">

I have deactivated the m/s to Km/h conversion when the creator is "Mobile Action http://www.mobileaction.com/" in the latest prerelease 1.29.6. Does it work for you?

No, just tested and am still getting impossible speeds...

Try Position 1483 and later in the first track in the file. It is showing a speed of 198 km/h and I can assure you I never went that fast as at that speed the fine is $10,000 and the car is seized and NOT returned! Position 1513 shows 281 km/h and that is far faster than my Chevy is even capable of doing on the Autobahn.

Position 1483 has a speed of 55 Km/h here which seems reasonable.

   

Do you have the correct version?

I downloaded right before I tested and it said it was 1.29.6, which is what you said I needed to download. Now I just downloaded again 18:44 EDT [GMT-5] and got prerelease version 1.29.7. This version does show the correct speed values.
Now if Mobile Action switches to using m/s I'll let you know but until then at least I am now getting the correct values <grin>...

Danke
