Hi Rob,

Many thanks for the explanation. I think I understand, but will have to
experiment with it in practice.

I'm not sure whether I understand about the time interval, though. Do you
mean that you have to guestimate the time it will take between points?

Best wishes,
Brian.

A breadcrumb generator, sometimes also called a track recorder, provides a
means to automatically record your position at given intervals. As the story
goes you leave breadcrumbs in an unfamiliar environment to be able to find
your way back. Loadstone does not yet provide this functionality but you can
record the data that comes from your GPS receiver by pressing the 'Start
Logging' option in the File menu. The resulting file is stored in the root
of the Loadstone folder on your phone as 'nmea.log'. By exporting this file
to a computer and feeding it to the Breadcrumb Generator on the Tools page
you get a database of points numbered from 1 to X that can bbe used as a
track. You can select the desired interval, where it is useful to know that
most people walk about 1 meter per second. We are looking into the
possibility to include this in the program.

	        I have no explanation for the mentioned difference between
the nmea
	data and your expected result. All I can suggest is that you erase
any
	nmea.log file from the phone and give it another try. If the result
remains
	faulty, please send me the nmea file and your expected coordinates.
