As a user of a PhotoTrackr device I was wondering whether there will be HoudahGeo support for this device.

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in HoudahGeo.

HoudahGeo and HoudahGPS rely on the open source GPSBabel for GPS connectivity. I don't think this connects directly to the GISTEQ device.

I however read that the GISTEQ device writes NMEA logs which are understood by GPSBabel. With some luck the device mounts like a USB device.

Do you have such a device?

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply: indeed I'm using a PhotoTrackr device. The Windows software supplied with it is rather buggy and unstable so as a Mac user I was looking for OSX software. The GPS Babel software is not working, the GPSNavX and the MacGPSpro apps do recognize the device and can display the real time readings, though they cannot read/save the tracks etc.
I was hoping that your app could do a better job.

I wonder if using this bit of software from a German project to recognize the phototrackr will help?

Also, Gisteq has released a [disappointing] software package for the Mac. So, between the two apps I hope Houdeh can get phototrackr support up and running.

Hi!

Thanks for the heads up.

HoudahGeo prefers track logs in the GPX or NMEA format. The above software is yet unable to produce files in this format.

The software does however produce logs in the CVS format. HoudahGeo does support [URL=http://www.gpsbabel.org/htmldoc-development/fmt_unicsv.html]quite a few CSV formats[/URL]. With a little luck there is direct compatibility. Most likely, the format will need a little manual tweaking before being able to be loaded into HoudahGeo.

Pierre- Is there any hope that you will take a look at the perl scripts or Gisteq's own software (JetPhoto with Phototrackr add-on) and see if there is a way to support the phototrackr organically?
Thanks!
