Very Large GPX .TMP files

Post by Artai » Mon May 27, 2019 9:46 am

Hi GPSMAP 62 users,

Has anyone experienced the GPSMAP 62 generating very large (0.7 -1.5 GB) .GPX log files although with a .tmp extension? I have experienced this a number of times particularly when logging over a long period e.g. 12 - 15 hr.

As the files are so large, it is a challenge to open them even to view but preliminary investigation indicates that an individual track point may be repeated hundreds of times in the file.

Potentially it has something to do with the UTC day rollover as the files will have a name like 2019-05-27 00.00.07 Day.tmp.

My units is a GPSmap 62s and is currently using software version 6.90 but I have experienced the same issue with earlier software versions as well.

Thanks

This sounds very familiar. I am certain it has been discussed in the past elsewhere.... I just have to find that conversation.....
