     29=== XC-Trainer ===
     30
     31  * One should initiate the download in !GpsDump (ie press the "XC-Trainer (MXP)" button or use the Logs/... menu) before pressing "SEL" in XC-Trainer. !GpsDump will wait "forever" for XC-Trainer to start sending data so no need to rush.
     32  * Do not use TNC to send the log. This will give you whatever local time the instrument is set to. MXP will give UTC time which is what you want.
     33  * In some cases you might get some error from !GpsDump while trying to download a tracklog. In these cases first try again, then try MXP 1s 19K, then MXP 3s 19K ... If MXP simply will not work for this instrument on this PC & COM port, try it on a different PC or COM port if you have one. Or try the TNC 1s 57K or 9.6 (set local time to same as UTC time first).
