Note: This page describes the development version of GPSBabel. It may substantially differ from the latest released GPSBabel.

XAiOX iTrackU Logger (itracku)

This format can...

  • read waypoints

  • read tracks

This format has the following options: backup, new .

Serial download protocol for the XAiOX iTrackU BLUETOOTH GPS-RECEIVER SiRF III™ data logger.

Example 3.41. Command showing a download from itracku connected to com14.

gpsbabel -i itracku -f com14 -o gpx -F out.gpx


Use auto: as input filename to let gpsbabel detect the serial port to which the logger is connected.

Example 3.42. Command showing a download from itracku with automatic port detection.

gpsbabel -i itracku -f auto: -o gpx -F out.gpx


backup option

Appends the input to a backup file.

Specifies a backup file for the binary logger data. New waypoints from the logger will be appended to an existing backup file. This allows you to create "endless" binary logger files which, for example, could contain the waypoint data of a whole year.

The backup file can be read with gpsbabel by using the itracku format.

Example 3.43. Download from the data logger while and append the new binary logger data to a backup file. Read the contents of the backup file.

gpsbabel -i itracku,auto,backup=itracku.bak -f dummy -o gpx -F out.gpx

gpsbabel -i itracku -f itracku.bak -o gpx -F out.gpx


new option

Only waypoints that are not the backup file.

Will only pass waypoints along to filters and output formats that are not new, i.e. that are not already stored in the backup file. This option can only be used with the backup option.

Using this option allows you to output the waypoints of your latest trip with gpsbabel while keeping an endless log of all waypoints in the backup file.

Example 3.44. Download from the data logger and append the new logger data to a backup file. Output only the new waypoints.

gpsbabel -i itracku,auto,backup=itracku.bak,new -f dummy -o gpx -F out.gpx
