Problem with altitude in PLT(ozi) -> KML(google earth) conversion

flyjodel
Hi,

When I convert an Oziexplorer track (PLT file) to a KML (Google Earth track)
GPSBABEL1.2.6 puts "0" instead of the altitude in the 3rd field.

Did I miss something ?
Thanks, Michel




The correct conversion would :
1. convert feet into meters
2. put altitude in the 3rd field

This is the instruction I use :
gpsbabel -t -i igc -o kml,lines=1,points=0 FILE_IN.PLT FILE_OUT.KML

The input is (alt in feet):
---------
OziExplorer Track Point File Version 2.1
WGS 84
Altitude is in Feet
Reserved 3
0,4,16776960,23-janv.-05 13:27:59-14:34:23      ,0,0,2,8421376
408
  49.007709,   4.077365,1,  396.3,38375.5194444, 23-janv.-05, 12:27:59
  49.007731,   4.077436,0,  278.0,38375.5199190, 23-janv.-05, 12:28:41
----------
The result is (alt filled with ZEROS):
----------
<coordinates>
4.077365,49.007709,0.000000
4.077436,49.007731,0.000000
</coordinates>
----------
The result should be (alt in meters):
----------
<coordinates>
4.077365,49.007709,120.7926
4.077436,49.007731,84.73465
</coordinates>
