Fragmented track logs

When track log is down loaded it is in fragments this generates several altitude profile graphs for the same log. Is it possible to combine these or prevent this happening.

Part 1 of answer:
If you record a track log from A to B, then turn it off and back on to record a track log from C to D, it is obvious your track logs will be fragmented, even though they may not be recorded separately. They may appear as a single, interrupted, trip.
Maybe you've got this one, or this was not your question, so there is a:

Part 2:
Even if your unit can record track logs of up to 10,000 points, it cannot receive track logs back from your PC bigger than 250 points.
So, track logs get fragmented when uploaded back. To have them again in the GPS you must edit them to 250-point separate packages.
It can be done, for most track points are usually superfluous, especially when you record straight trajects; if your track log has many curves, it gets harder to simplify them.
Some software packages have a "Simplify track" tool, which solves this automatically in seconds, but it is the software who decides what to keep and what to remove, so edited track logs can be pretty unaccurate.
The only other option is to edit them one by one, so it's you who decides which track points are necessary or not. It can be painstakingly slow, but it pays if the tracks are important for you to use again and again.
Maybe I have not answered exactly what you needed to know, but anyway the solution is, or at least can be, editing your track logs in your PC. For instance, GPS Expert is a fine software to do that: you can split track logs, eliminate track points, join them back, simplify them or add new track points.
Nothing replaces a good editing software, but to get a useful collection of tracks and routes to use and share frequently, you must work on them for some time.

Best regards!

USER PROFILE WILL NOT LOAD


This is way too vague a problem description to be able to even make a suggestion.

What kind of Laptop?
What operating system?
Any problems getting to the login screen?
Are you able to log in, but not load the profile; or not log in at all?
Is this after starting a machine that was off, after logging off and back on, or when trying to switch users?
Are you logging on with a local account or a domain/network account?
How many profiles are on the PC?
How much space is available on the HDD?
Does it load a temporary profile, or just error-out?

What's your problem?It's stuck on logging off


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

I am tring to down load something but it wont let me?


I fixed mine by going into System Settings, Network settings, then running a test on xbox live. Initiating the test logs your profile out then runs a network test. The test completed with no problems and then asked me if I wanted to update again. Without logging back into my profile I clicked OK and the update ran without a hitch. I think the solution lies in the fact that my profile was logged out and from what I have seen, the only way to connect to xbox live without a profile being logged in is with a network test. Once you connect to xbox live it senses that you don't have the update and asks you again, this time without a profile logged in and you are able to do it.

I have a Canon Pixma MP610. Each time I scan certain 8x10 color images I don't get the whole image. Sometimes there is one fragmented piece, other times I get several fragments of varying magnifications. I...


I think this is because you have a lot of white space and canon scanners try to grab only what they think is the image you are trying to scan (rather than the whole plate). When you scan I think you can select the area you want to scan rather than just let it do it for you. It's a while since I did this so cannot be more specific.

The computer won't log me on.


Make a backup copy of all your data, including passwords, emails, settings, etc

Find another windows xp computer whether its a friends or another computer you have and get a memory stick or external hard drive ( which you will need ) on the working computer go into

c:\documents and settings

make a copy of the default user folder and copy that over the one on your laptop and try again.

I rebooted my system in 'safe mode' (which allowed me to login as
administrator), moved my files to the public area, and then deleted my
profile (using the Users option in Control Panel).

When I rebooted again, in normal mode, I could login as administrator, and
then moved my files back and rebuilt my profile manually.

The only problem was my forgetting about e-mail messages, which I did not
backup and have been lost permanently. Ug!!!
