gpx time format .xxx--1:00 vs Z?

Asked by ceg on 2009-12-25

Exporting to a .gpx file with igotu2gpx produces lines like

<time>2009-12-25T12:29:26.000--1:00</time>

in the gpx file and the file could not be imported into "mytourbook" (GPL java app from http://mytourbook.sourceforge.net), until I changed those lines to look like in the gpx example in the wikipedia article:

<time>2009-12-25T12:29:26Z</time>

Does igotu2gpx produce an alternative format? It seems to work with viking, should it work with any other app, too?

Hi ceg,

thanks for your question.

If you set the timezone to gmt+-0 in the preferences dialog (which
should be the default setting), the data/time format should change to
<time>2009-12-25T12:29:26.000Z</time> which should be readable by most
applications.

Does this solve your problem?

Thank you for providing an answer.
I could try it now, and it seems to work with "GMT+-0" including the .000 miliseconds just fine.
