I am no coder so please bear with me. I am using GPSBabel via simple batch files to grab data from Garmin gps's using
gpsbabel -t -w -i garmin -f usb: -o gpx -F D:\gpsdata\gpsdata.gpx
This returns the correct data but I am wondering if I am missing something re waypoints and time?
A typical waypoint is like this with local time in cmt and desc fields but track points have zulu time in another field. Is there any way to get zulu time into a <time> field for waypoints?
<wpt lat="-42.842553779" lon="147.267115870">
<trkpt lat="-42.842634246" lon="147.267185273">
Many thanks - Phil Wyatt

Certain Garmins have timestamp fields in what they transfer to us. Most of
the hand-helds don't write the data in those fields. We don't "dumpster
dive" in the freeform text comments to look for things that may be a date.
As we don't know the time zone or the locale information (a unit set for
Spanish, for example, presumably writes "Mayo" for the fifth month, for
example) it's just not something we do.
An external, special-purpose processor that knew those things could probably
pull that off with some success, but we really can't do it in any kind of
