Here are the most important features of the Boxy2::Downloader (screenshot) which goal is to give analyzers or debriefers a quick overview about a GPS logger track of a balloon flight.
  • download a track from a serial connected Garmin GPS device
  • save the downloaded track in PLT and GPX format
  • show all track points in a list
  • show the track and the loaded PZ's on a map
  • analyse the track against PZ infringements and vertical speed limit exceedants
  • generate a nice PDF document (sample)
Actually the download of tracks has only been tested under Windows.
