How to Use Official GPS Data from Race Organizers

These are only basic guidelines.  Additional information can be found in your various user manuals, help files within programs, or from a technically savvy friend.  RallyTrack.com will NOT be able to assist you, free of charge, on an individual basis.

 

For your GPS Unit...

  1. Download and save the race organizer's data file to your computer.

  2. If necessary...convert the data to a format that your GPS unit is able to use.
    Available Conversion Programs:
    GPS Track Maker www.gpstm.com 
    OziExplorer www.OziExplorer.com 
    Your own GPS upload software may also convert data
  3. Filter out the important GPS data that you need.  Most GPS units have a limited number of Waypoints, Icons, and Plot Trail points that can be imported.  See your user's manual for specifications.
  4. Download and save any existing data on your GPS unit that you wish to keep for future reference.
  5. Upload data to your GPS Unit using your upload software.  See your user's manual for detailed instructions.
  6. Your GPS Unit is now ready for Pre-Running or Racing at the next event.

 

For your Computer and Post-Race Analysis

  1. Download and save the data file to your computer.

  2. If necessary...convert the data to a format that map software is able to use.
    Available Conversion Programs:
    GPS Track Maker www.gpstm.com 
    OziExplorer www.OziExplorer.com 
    Your own GPS upload software may also convert data
  3. Import GPS data into your map software to create a layer for all the course data.  This will allow you to have an interactive digital map of the race course.
  4. Additionally... the digital map you created may be used to compare your race vehicle's actual path no sooner than 2 weeks after the event has completed.  Request your GPS data file from RallyTrack.com per instructions titled "How to Request Your Data from a Previous Event" at www.rallytrack.com/rallylogger/download.htm 
  5. Convert and overlay your GPS data with the official course data for analyzing actual path, speed, arrival times, average time through a given section, etc.
