(Any) flightplan to XCSoar format converter

Postby BOD1 » Mon Aug 03, 2009 11:19 pm

Following a recurrent request, I've added a tool to convert any FPL (and not only those available on CC) to XCSoar (.TSK) format.

Very nice Thierry !!! thank you

Is it too difficult to change the algorithm so it can also handle AAT's? I tried and it doesn't work. If you have some time, take a look at it. Again, thank you for all your effort for the community!!

This will be very useful! I got Condor in order to practise using XCSoar on my PDA so that, when the happy day comes where I can actually go cross-country, I'll already be familiar with XCSoar. (Haven't got as far as finding and setting up the PDA yet though...)

"Following a recurrent request, I've added a tool to convert any FPL (and not only those available on CC) to XCSoar (.TSK) format."

After you have made the conversion, where do you put the new file on the memory card, in order to see the track on the HP310?

Thanks,

I am trying to parse an .fpl for a scenery I am building of the Cape in South Africa but it doesnt work. Is this because it is in the Southern Hemisphere with negative values? I would really like to use XCSoar with Condor.

I recently wanted to create a flight plan on XCsoar from a Condor task. Unfortunately the list of maps within the current download version of Condor2nav has not been updated since 2012.
Additionally the facility with Condor Club which claims to convert Condor tasks to XCsoar format does not work (well for me it doesn't).

It would seem the solution which I have found and probably other that use XCsoar have found as well is to add the map that you want to the Condor2nav Map directory and also to amend the SceneryData.csv file.

The best way to understand the process is on this website:

https://tortui.wordpress.com/2017/01/04 ... ondor2nav/

I may be posting the blinding obvious to other XCsoar users or maybe there is a repository of up date maps and csv file that I am not aware of.

It would be kind of nice to think that whenever a new scenery came out, the Condor Club provided an updated XCsoar Maps and csv file :wink:
