OziExplorer (ozi)

This format can...

  • read and write waypoints

  • read and write tracks

  • read and write routes

This format has the following options: pack, snlen, snwhite, snupper, snunique, wptfgcolor, wptbgcolor, proximity, altunit, proxunit .

OziExplorer Waypoint Format - Another CSV format file. Tested against OziExplorer v 3.90.3a / Shareware. Contributed by Alex Mottram

pack option

Write all tracks into one file.

In normal case GPSBabel creates for each track a separate file (track.plt, track-1.plt, ...). With this option all tracks will be written into one file. A '1' in the third field of the trackpoint record signals the beginning of a new track.

gpsbabel -i gpx -f tracks.gpx -o ozi,pack -F track

snlen option

Max synthesized shortname length.

This option allows you to specify the length of waypoint names written to this format when used with the -s option.

snwhite option

Allow whitespace synth. shortnames.

This option forces waypoint names generated with -s to allow whitespace in the names.

snupper option

UPPERCASE synth. shortnames.

When specified, this option will force generated shortnames to be in all uppercase letters.

snunique option

Make synth. shortnames unique.

When specified, this option will force the generated waypoint names to be unique.

wptfgcolor option

Waypoint foreground color.

This option allows you to specify a foreground color of a waypoint. You can specify it as either a decimal number or one of the standard web colors.

wptbgcolor option

Waypoint background color.

This option allows you to specify a background color of a waypoint. You can specify it as either a decimal number or one of the standard web colors.

proximity option

Proximity distance.

This option, specified in meters, allows you to set the proximity of written waypoints.

altunit option

Unit used in altitude values.

By default the ozi module uses feet as altitude unit. With this option you can specify also 'Meters' (m) as unit for altitude values.

proxunit option

Unit used in proximity values.

By default the proximity values are handled in meters. With this option you can now specify (m)iles, (k)ilometers or (n)autical miles as the units for proximity when reading or writing ozi files.
