Hello!
I have GPS Receiver with my Ectaco Partenr Device.
http://www.ectaco.com/main.jsp?do=products-view_item&item=20869
It stores gps track logs into *.bin files.
It also can convert gps track logs into *.kml files, however kml not contain time and altitude info, so it unacceptable for me.
Is there any way or any software to convert bin files into хml or other formats, for example *.gpx ?

Hi,

Thanks for the question. Unfortunately the GPS files and formats are unable to be modified by our technical service.

Maybe a If you have the Bin file moved to your PC or MAC maybe you you can Google some software for this and download it.

Hope this helps!

Yes, I have moved bin file to PC, then I Google but did not find any software for converting it to another formats.
Can you get description of format of bin file from your technial service?
If so, I will be able to convert it myself.

Hi,

Thanks for the question. What do you mean by "get a description of the bin format"? If you need to know more details of a "bin" file and what it is a search engine inquiry should be in order.

Hope this helps!

About description of the bin format. Step by step.
So, Ectaco GPS Receiver writes track log into bin-file. As far as I have examine this file, it contains records for each track point, each record - 48-bytes length.
Example of one track point record near Atlanta:
00 00 80 DF BE 17 55 C0 AB E8 68 20 07 E3 40 40
AE 93 A7 4C 6D 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00
19 0C 40 FC FD B1 98 01 C2 00 00 00 1C 01 00 00
Is there any description of bin-file in terms of: what bytes from this record corresponds to latitude, what bytes - to longitude, what - to time/date, and so on?
Usially only developer of device (Ectaco GPS Receiver) can supply this info. If this info is available, then anyone can write converter from Ectaco-GPS-Receiver-bin-file to generally accepted gps formats, like gpx.
Or may be developer of Ectaco GPS Receiver supply any software to convert their bin-files to generally accepted gps formats?
If neither description of bin file nor converting software does not available, it is very strange. Because in this case Ectaco GPS Receiver is "black box", not able to transfer recorded information outside for bounds of Ectaco Partner device.

Hey,

I showed the info to the development team and unfortunately they indicated i am not allowed to release any more information regarding this. They didn't give me a reason, maybe the algorithm is special or copyright. Sorry i cant provide further info!
