Exporting A Session with All Lap Data

Postby msnare » Thu Feb 08, 2018 5:31 am

When I export a single lap's data in CSV format I get a ton of detailed data including lat, long. speed, etc., at approx 1,300 data points (showing as 1,300 lines in Excel) in a 2 minute lap. When I export a whole session of laps, even a small session with 4 or 5 laps, I get a lap time, split times, and a few other bits, which show up as a single "summary" line per lap.

Is there a way to export a whole session and get the same detail I get with a single lap export? I know I could export each lap and merge the data manually, just hoping there is a more automated way.

If it matters, I want to import what I export into a tool like Track Attack that I can use to do analysis on my laptop, compare multiple laps, see multiple charts on same screen, etc.

Thanks.

When exporting to CSV, LapTimer generates one or two files depending on the number of laps included:

1 lap: LapTimerGPSRecDB.csv
multiple laps: LapTimerDB.csv and LapTimerGPSRecDB.csv

LapTimerDB.csv (if exported) has a list of laps, while LapTimerGPSRecDB.csv always has the full details.

OK, so you are saying that the only way to get the full details for a multi-lap track session is to export one lap at a time and then either manually paste the laps together into a single file, or import them one lap at a time into another app. Have I got this right?

That works OK, but it would be a nice feature to be able to export full details of a whole session in a single export file. Thanks.

No, what I'm saying is you need to look into the right file. ;-) Check LapTimerGPSRecDB.csv instead of LapTimerDB.csv. The later is an extra you get for multi-lap exports.

If you can't remember which name is which, check the file size and open the larger one.

Thanks. Works as you say when I try again. I must have been only selecting a single lap when I thought I was selecting the full session.
