I have several log files that are (due to any reason) split into peaces, but belong to one continuous flight.

How can I merge them?

e.g.
1st file named "(2,2 nm) Mid-Way - Unknown 201305211720"
2nd file named "(6,4 nm) Unknown - Midlothian 201305211724"
3rd file named "(11 nm) Midlothian - Mid-Way 201305211728"

Is there any way to merge these files to one file like "(19,6 nm) Mid-Way - Mid-Way 201305211720" and show the complete breadcrumb trail?

Removing the "#Start" row in each file did not work, because of the ascending numeration in each row

Any idea?

Georg,

I asked this very same question on the Skydemon stand at Aero Expo and they told me you couldn't yet, but it might be in a future update.

With a free xml editor (download from the net) and a little computer knowledge you can stitch them together manually.

We don't even have an internal tool for doing this at the moment. It's something I would like to do, though. As you say, stitching them together is the easy bit, you just have to modify the first column to go up in sequence properly.

An easier way is to use the export or mail function to export the files as GPX. This produces files that can be edited in a text editor, e.g. notepad, so much easier.

Open the first file, and you'll notice the actual track data is between two 'trkseg' markers, e.g.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<gpx xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1/gpx.xsd" version="1.1" creator="SkyDemon Plan v2.6.3.0" xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1">
<trk>
<name>Northampton Sywell - Northampton Sywell</name>
<trkseg> <<<<<< =================
<trkpt lat="52.301990" lon="-0.795403">
<ele>121.4933</ele>
<speed>15.844889</speed>
<time>2010-10-16T09:56:00Z</time>
</trkpt>
.....
.....
</trkseg> <<<<<< =================
******* INSERT HERE *********
</trk>
</gpx>

Take the next file, and copy the data between the <trkseg> markers. Paste it where shown. You can do this as often as you like, but make sue you keep the data in the right time order:
<trkseg>
.....
.....
</trkseg>
<trkseg>
.....
.....
</trkseg>
<trkseg>
.....
.....
</trkseg>
<trkseg>
.....
.....
</trkseg>

.gpx format files can then be viewed in programs such as google earth.
GO
