.bin tracks

Hello there. Congrats on the great job done creating this program, i am just testing how it work but i have found it great already.

I have installed racechrono in my pda manually. When i try to import rece tracks the only options to its format are PERF.BOX (.dsf) and G2XTREME (.lap) but the files downloaded from here are .bin How do i install the tracks on my device?

I am also having some throuble with the internal GPS. The COPILOT navigation system i usually use founds 7 to 11 satellite conections, but the RaceChrono is always "No fix to satellites" i have check the settins in the program and the device and it seems to be all right. I am also looking to get some external GPS to test.

Thanks from Barcelona, Spain.

    Copy the downloaded .bin track files to \RaceChrono\Tracks\ folder. Selected storage is the one selected in settings.

    Which phone and operating system (version) do you have? There are some problems with the internal GPS support on the Windows Mobile 6 phones.
  • Thanks aol.

    As i didn´t know where the tracks were saved i just created a track and then copy the .bin file into that folder, i can see it now, so #1 fixed.

    About the GPS, i am running the program in an ACER PocketPC C500 Handheld with Windows Mobile 5.01
    Found a friend with external GPS in case the internal doesn´t work.

    Thanks for the help.

  • You can try to use the internal through COM ports (you need to google how to do it). But there has been reports of similar problem, so I think you've run in to same.
  • Thanks again. The internal doesn´t work with racechrono, neither internal nor COM.
    I´ve got now a bluetooth GPS running through COM port and it works great. Now i just have to wait till the trackday in Calafat, Spain to enjoy your work. Thanks again.
