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

Franson GPSGate Simulation (gpssim)

This format can...

  • write waypoints

  • write tracks

  • write routes

This format has the following options: wayptspd, split .

This is a write-only format used to feed waypoints, tracks, and routes into Franson Technolgies' GpsGate simulator.

To use these files in GpsGate, select 'Simulator' and then "File->Open".

wayptspd option

Default speed for waypoints (knots/hr).

This option specifies the speed of the simulation in knots.

split option

Split input into separate files.

When this option is specified, GPSBabel will split split the output into multiple files using the output filename as a base. For example, if you specify an output file of 'mytrip',

mytrip-waypoints.gpssim - will contain the waypoints.
mytrip-track0000.gpssim - will contain the first track.
mytrip-track0001.gpssim - will contain the second track.
... and so on.
mytrip-route0000.gpssim - will contain the first route.
mytrip-route0001.gpssim - will contain the seconds route.
... and so on.

Valid values for this option are 0 (off) and 1 (on). The default is '0'.
