Note: This page describes an obsolete version of GPSBabel that may substantially differ from the current or development version.

Alan Map500 tracklogs (.trl) (alantrl)

This format can...

  • read and write tracks

GPSBabel supports .wpr and .trl files for Alan Map500 devices running operating system versions 2.xx.

.trl contain files tracklogs. If you use a CF-Card based operating system, tracklog files must have a .TRL extension when copied to the CF-Card. The default filename is TEMP_TRK.TRL. Only one .TRL file may be present.

Alan's operating system 3.0 for Map500 is not supported yet. At the time of this writing, OS3 is still beta. Documentation on the new dataformats is sparse.

The Alan Map500 handheld GPSr is identical to the Holux GM101. This GPSBabel module has only been tested against the Alan Map500. Still, if you use a GM101, GPSBabel will probably be able to convert your waypoints, routes and tracklogs.
