GPS and sensor analysis tools by Åke Wallebom

Analyze a run on a race track. When did I brake? What entry speed did I have in the chicane? How fast did I go on the straight? etc.

Supported formats

NMEA - The standard GPS data format
OakLog - OakGPS's own format for logging (used by e.g. OakLogMobile)
DriftBox .dbn - Format used by DriftBox by Racelogic
