The exported VOB seems broken while loading from Circuit tools.

One more query is there any documentation for how to embed Laptimer recording into Racelogic's circuit tools? I read it somewhere but can't find it again.

Does the data look fine within LapTimer? In case it doesn't, the export will neither.
I can't check the file manually, it is too big. CT is quite fragile with the VBO format, there is no official documentation either.

Please export exactly this lap (not multiple laps) to HLPTR and send it to Harry@gps-laptimer.de

Hi Harry,

It's sent out. I have both hlptrz and vbo for you.
Email title: LapTimer Export (LapTimer-0054-20190813-092756)

The laptime: 15:33.20
Distance: 17.013km

It's a mountain way.

Thanks.

This looks like some interpolation problem. When zooming into the top point of the corrupted CT diagram, you will see something like this:

This means there are some rows included in the VBO which have wrong polar positions and add this long extends to the South. Using a shell command to look for coordinates out of range can look like this:

Code: Select all

cat LapTimer-0054-20190811-214807.vbo|gawk '{ if (substr($3,1,5)<"+1491"||substr($3,1,5)>"+1495") print }'
You will get this output:

Remove these lines from the VBO using a text editor to get a proper display in CT. I have not tested it, but should work.

I will check what is going on for the next version.

Update. The root cause is in the original recording. It looks like your 10 Hz GPS delivered corrupt data for the spot all the spikes originate from. I assume the interpolation applied during VBO export is running in precision issues triggered by the specific pattern shown in the "bad spot". You can try deleting the fixes in the area (Lap List ‣ the lap ‣ Fixes). The problem is around the 2800th fix of the lap. It is hard to handle because the recording is quite long combined with an update rate of 10 Hz.

Nice investigation and update. Really appraciate. I'm gonna to check what's wrong with my dual electronics xgps160. My hunch is the overheating during recording.

Thanks // Hugo

Hi Harry,

I found the corrupted fixes. I remember what happened during the timeframe. I stopped there for 2mins for friends.

Hope this help to improve the laptimer.
