    I looked into the GPSVisualizer. I am not quite sure how to do this. There is no formatting needed to view the CSV files in GPSVisualizer. All you have to do is upload and view on their site. I am just not sure how to interface this yet.... I will work on it I guess - gotta figure how to make my server's php file upload the data to the GPSVisualizer site... We'll see how it goes. -BW

    I should be able to come up with a nice little php script (if you'd like) that will upload the CSV file to GPSvisualization.com and then download the SVG file to a temp file and maybe even convert it to a jpg. I'll play around with it a bit and see what I can do.

    Progress: On hold while I pay off my new PowerBook :D
    Part List:
    VIA MII10000 - 512MB - 20Gig 2.5" - Rikaline 6010 - 7" Lilliput - CNX-P1260 - Alpine 4ch Amp - 4 Gauge wire and fused distrobution block.

    GPSVisualizer works better with GPX files, a more standard mechanism for tracking journeys and points. It's a little trickier to create a GPX file rather than a CSV file as there are some rules you have to follow.

    The best solution would be for NM to create the file in GPX format to start with or, as an alternative, write a little conversion program or script.

    As an aside if you decide to try this the GPX format doesn't like more than one point per second with some tools so it is best to suppress additional points within the same second of they occur. I have done a little with this and can help out if someone wants to have a go at it.

    heh. I didn't mean to imply you should do it, someone should write a converter. Once they've done that and got the nitty bits sorted they might send you the code so you could optionally incorporate it into the logging process if you wanted to.

    Having MM create GPX tracks would be a very powerful feature, also if it could read GPX files...

    I'll probably release the source for the example plugins I created, I've got enough on my plate

    UPDATE: I have now added the appropriate code to allow users to see their OWN data. Please visit the site at: http://www.woollum.com/gpstrack/ and give it a shot! Let me know what you think about it.

    I have made a site for all of us swedes that is building carPC's and it would be great to put a swedish version on our site... of course there will be full credits to you as the creator...

    Although the code is rather simple (and easy to re-make), I still would not like to release it as of yet.

    If there is enough interest I will look into making it a little better.

    Thanks Again!
