Below is a topic I replied to on the gpspassion forums and I thought the information might be useful here as well.

I am sorry to reply to this question so late but I just recently purchased an AGL-3080 and was having the same problem myself.

It looks like the AGL-3080 is using a non-standard NMEA string to mark a waypoint using the Mark button on the side of the unit.

Here is a couple of log entries from mine:

$GPGSA,A,3,14,03,21,31,,,,,,,,,9.0,5.9,6.8*3E
$GPGSV,3,1,10,14,84,273,24,03,26,239,16,21,19,137,18,31,13,176,22*7C
$GPGSV,3,2,10,22,61,034,22,19,33,275,25,18,29,074,21,06,26,224,*72
$GPGSV,3,3,10,09,19,048,17,32,17,282,*7C
$ADPMB,5,0 <--- Here is the button press!
$GPRMC,162202.511,A,3510.3071,N,11358.6823,W,0.90,24.52,070608,,,A*4E
$GPVTG,24.52,T,,M,0.90,N,1.7,K,A*33
$GPGGA,162207.000,3510.3081,N,11358.6812,W,1,03,2.4,1212.9,M,-25.2,M,,0000*54

Now I don't have any idea what DPMB,5,0 is supposed to stand for but it isn't a standard waypoint marker and so none of the log conversion software that I know of is looking for it.

I have contacted the author of GPSbabel and he said he would include a fix to convert this to a normal waypoint in the next version. I will contact the author of HoudahGPS and let him know as well so he can fix it too.

If you write software to read/convert gps logs you might want to be aware of this quirk on the AGL-3080.

I hope this info is helpful to someone!

Hi!

Thanks for keeping me posted.

I thrive to update both HoudahGPS and HoudahGeo with the latest versions of GPSBabel. I however understand that version 1.3.5 has issues. I thus might skip that.

Hi Shawn, Pierre and others,

I bought a AGL3080 recently and had the same problem. Amod replied on my query that they are making a convertor tool which should be available within a week or so. And they will release a firmware version 3 which will fix this MAC bug (apparently in the Windows version there is no problem).

I'll keep you updated,
Hans
