Hi there,

I just recorded the track I want to create with a garmin gps tracker, now I own a gdb file with 2 tracks in.
how can I convert it to the csv file to import it to BTB?

found this link, but don't understand anything,yet! :D
I have map source from garmin installed on my PC. But don't know how to use it...:monkey:
I think it can't be too difficult.

I've done this with traqmate data, but it has a friendly export. You just have to reformat and eliminate unnecessary columns. I'll look at the raw garmin gdb file if you'd like and tell if there's anything I can do with it

If you need to use a spreadsheet (e.g. for its calculating abilities) you could use the one which comes with OpenOffice, or you could search Google for something like Excel Alternative and see what looks suitable.

Ok, I managed to convert to kml with trackmaker, but...

...the in btb imported kml track, makes me wonder, if the gps tracker I used, does record altitude correct, better said exact.
See on picture what I mean, it's easier to explain!

The gpstracker I used: Garmin GPS MAP 60CSX

I just thougt, that these machines record altitude more precisely..:question:

Hi toergisch, I use a Garmin etrex legend HCx with no barometric altimeter and find that the height data although not very acurate is a fair starting point. Like you I would have expected the 60csx to do a much better job. Sorry not to be more help.

I read in other forums, that other users of this machine had similar problems, maybe it was our own fault, because of wrong usage..:confused2: Sad!
