  Why make a simple task too complex? I have played with replaying nmea 
logs but it will not help on this issue.

  Let's take an example: i'll  like to transfer a  favourite from WFA to 
LS. I start the LS, land somewhere,  create a nmea log to reflect  that 
location, transfer it to the computer, replay it in a continous loop to 
the WFA, look for distance & direction, convert them to latitude & 
longitude coordinates, enter these to the LS, convert new location to nmea 
data and repeat this until the location is accurate enough.

  If there is a facility to convert the exploration mode commands to nmea 
log half of the emulator is already done.
