Just tried it again, and it sent the entire day's data - all GPS and OBDII data. Huge file - 2.3 MB of text.

Are you selecting the "export" option from the main Lap List page (top left of screen), or from an individual lap's page (bottom of page)? From the Lap List page you get either every lap you have ever done, or all the laps from the last day recorded. I use the "TrackVision or DashWare .csv" file option.

I just tried it again. I have it set to export trackvision or Dashware .csv. The file name comes out as: laptimerGPSRecDB4Dashboard.csv.gz

When you open the file, you get a bunch of jarbled garbage and it's not reconized by trackvision or dashware.... weird....

You know it's compressed right? That's what the .gz extension means. You need to uncompress the file first.

Doh!!! I did not know that! I'll look for a program to decompress it.

Just try double-clicking on it. My Mac knew how to uncompress it - presumably a PC can do it too.

Yeah, the Double click opens up excel instead. Is .gz a compression protocol for Mac?

+1 trackmaster for android. I use qstars 10hz external gps, gopro hd video, and video synch/ editing with dashware. This allows both evoscan navigator data and my zeitronixs external gauges to be overlaid on the video. I'll have video posted up after my next track day march 24. Best way to go imo for pc based software

It's a gzip file - you can get a free uncompressor for Windows.

Figured it out. You are correct. You can export more than one lap at a time! Thanks!

Interesting stuff. I just ran Infineon this past Saturday recording video and logging data with HLT for the very first time. Yeah about half of my logged data had bad gps data points (although I'll take that 40sec lap at Infineon, yes I will! ). This was on an old iPhone 3GS mounted somewhat far from the windshield.

Actually the bigger issue for me is that the video recorded wasn't for the whole lap. At Infineon, the video would start at the outer berms of Turn 1 (near where the pit exit is) and end before, right at the start of the turn 1 kink. I'm wondering if there's a setting that corrects for that, it would be nice if there was overlap in the front and back.

Looks like Ill have to invest in an external GPS next time (I'm not that serious/go out that much to invest in anything more...)
