NOTE BY GPSPASSION : The original DG-100 manager is no longer being maintained but it lives on as DGManager.NET and you can use this topic to discuss it too.




DG-100 Manager


The GlobalSat DG-100 (*1) is a very good device, but many people don't
like the software shipped with it.

Thanks to the Specs (*2) released by GlobalSat and to some
reverse-engeneering, I'm writing a replacement software.

rbluff c# port (details into this thread,
this port is now way more powerfull than
my own last version) :

http://sourceforge.net/projects/dgmanager-net/

Update 2008/11/28

  • Option to save separate GPX trkseg

  • Option to join tracks (edition menu) ** EXPERIMENTAL**

Binary (309 ko) : http://www.knackes.com/soft/DGm/0042/DGManager0042.rar
Source (30 ko) : http://www.knackes.com/soft/DGm/0042/DGManager0042src.rar



External dependencies :
* ComPort Library (http://sourceforge.net/projects/comport
* ICS (http://www.overbyte.be/eng/products/index.html)

Commented specs : Embeded in the source archive.
(The original specs have errors and missing information)

Great piece of work you've put in here! The application received from GlobalSat definitely needed a challenger

Regarding DG Manager, I've had a quick go with it and it works quite well, but some finetuning is still needed. I can, for instance, not get the integration with Google Maps to work properly. The default position in the Google Maps window is always somewhere in the atlantic ocean west of Africa and I have to zoom out and move to the area where my track was recorded. I'm sure this is something you can fix quite easily.

Further more, I can't figure out what the preview window is for. It is always empty for me. I have tried selecting parts of my recorded route to see if it is displayed, but nothing appears in the window. Might be that I'm doing something wrong or merely don't understand the feature.

I'll be happy to test later beta releases of this software. The DG-100 is a nice little device - once you've received a fix, that is. The TTFF is unfortunately too long and I wouldn't trust the reception from inside a back pack. Must have something to do with the positioning of the antenna. My Holux GR-213 mouse receiver (using the first SirfIII chip) that I'm using in my car is a whole lot quicker in attaining a fix, even after not being used for a long time.

Good luck with your work and let us know of your progress!

Yes, thanks for sharing.
Certainly speedier than the original software a few comments/suggestions :
1. Yes preview only seems to work with existing gsd files
2. Same here for GM maps, over Africa, but not wit
3. Would be nice to have an option to save to the .gsd format for archiving puposes
4. Conversely can't export from a previously loaded gsd files
5. Is it possible to have GM refresh when select different portions ?

Thanks for your feedback.
I got no problem myself so far. I'll make a save to GSD option so that you can send me data to find this bug.
I think the problem of "no preview" and "miss-centred google maps" are linked, but I've not been able to reproduce what you're describing so far.
I'm looking at all the points you both submitted, Next release should be 1st of May (maybe not addressing all of them).

Update 1st of May:

Added GSD save and a few bugfixes/changes/additions.
If you still encounter non-showing preview or miss-centered Google maps, please send me a GSD from the Data that causes it.

The problems I encountered appeared with data just read from the DG-100. If I open a gsd file that was previously saved from the Globalsat application, DG-100 Manager seems to work fine. Why do these scenarios create a difference?

Another thing; saving a gsd file from DG-100 Manager doesn't seem to work. The file I saved from the Globalsat application was 42 KB while the same track created from DG-100 Manager was only 2KB and created no map picture when it was reloaded into the app. I'd be happy to send you the files so that you can have a look at them.

Did you get my email ? Because I've received no answer so far, and I wasn't able to reproduce your problem here.

@Pixel_K: I have a question that is only indirectly related to this thread (question about checksum calculation) and thus would be inapropriate to ask here; posting here is the only way I can get a hold of you: I would really appreciate it if you would let me know your email address (speigei@hotmail.com) so I can contact you. Thanks!

Don't request email contacts, see the rules, the forums are fine for that type of question.

Hello,
I'm also having the same problem(s). Recorded one hour in 3 sec interval in "position, time, date and speed"-mode. Reading the device with Dg100m results with only one point from each 95-point "file" and no preview. Globalsat software reads all points ok.

Also after reading the device with GS software and saving the result as GSD file and opening the GSD with Dg100m, date/time information is lost in all points. The GSD in question file can be downloaded from:

Did you try the latest version ? (v0.0.27.269)
Because here at least it loads you gsd fine and all data are available.
If your problem persists with the latest version I can send you a verbose version so I can track the bug down.

Yes, I have v0.0.27.269 version. When I open the GSD file above, the table says for all track points time 0:00:00 date 30.12.1899. Saving the GSD again with Dg100m gives file:

Pixel_K, thanks for working on this project. I have a problem, which you can see in the GSD files generated from the GlobalSat utility VS DG-100 Manager. The longitude is not correct and there is an unusual character (-) in the longitude field. Compare the two GSD files found here: http://pdxsports.com/downloads/gsd.zip

You'll also note that the GlobalSat utility uses local time (Pacific Daylight Time), which is a nice feature.

Let me know what additional information you need. Thanks!

Wayne

Thanks for your feedback, I'll work on those problems.

Edit :

I think I correctd the "-" problem. But for the time display i'm not so sure, could you please make me a screenshot of how Globlasat's software displays your data ? It seems to be different on my computer and on yours.

Here's the GlobalSat Tree View: http://pdxsports.com/downloads/globalsat_tree.gif

I believe that it adjusts the time to the current time zone.

Also, it would be nice if there were support for Imperial units in the configuration screen, like in the globalsat program. (Us folks in the USA would appreciate it!)
