If it looks like GPS_LOG WinCE is missing some lines or letters in map or
waypoint files and they look like standard ASCII text but maybe with some
accented characters then put a comment line ;ASC at the very beginning of the
file or use ANSItoUTF8 file converter supplied with GPS_LOG Win32 (PC version)
to translate the troubling characters. You can also download following
executables for PDA (no installer):
OS3 mips, OS3 sh3, OS3 arm, PocketPC2002, and 2003, Win Mobile 5 and above

Following link retrieves an Excel spreadsheet that is an example of *.DAT to *.DTA format conversion. It contains waypoints in the Pyrenees.
Following link retrieves a Windows CE utility for operating system 3.0 and higher that does the *.DAT to *.DTA format conversion, and this link retrieves PC version. Put the PC version in the same folder as the GPS_LOG Win32 program. The default altitude selector unit seen in both versions refers to altitude values that have no unit indicator in the original DAT file.
AIR (TimNewport-Peace format) file conversion and map generation:
Following link retrieves a program that runs on a PC and converts *.AIR airspace format into *.MAP file. This is based on ConvAirMapW32 program code supplied by Andrea Ferrero. This link retrieves Windows CE version of this utility for operating system 3.0 and higher.
