GPS Fun Runner 3D

Lets you compare Garmin runs in 3D

I've been toying with Blitz 3D for a few years now, this is a program which lets you import and compare two of your tcx files in 3D. (tcx files are generated, and can be exported by Garmin's GPS line of products)

Its got a game element to it where if your heart rate is above a certain level then your life force goes down - you get three lives before a gravestone pops up and the data's avatar takes on a grey-ish complexion.

Still kinda in beta release, not sure if it'll ever be finished. You need to access the program from the start bar, then select Import to import the provided tcx files (or yours if you want). Pressing start in the 3D interface 'should' show the two pieces of data racing each other.

I'm a bit of a stat-freak, myself. I tend to take my Lumia with me when on walks, but am unsure how/if you can get the gps data out of it.
.. I hate when dev's lock things like that.

Nice looking proggy, though.

Thanks Jayenkai, I've tried importing the GPX file format into my application (from my Android phone) and it parses some of the data. However I'd need to do a lot more work to get the green and purple dudes to race each other from that file format, I reckon that might be staying on the to-do / never to-do list

UPDATED the demonstration so it works on a PC with an Admin account, hopefully

I have not and will not be downloading this, but over the years I have seen your posts on the Blitz forums and followed your progress on this. Truly the most impressive use of Blitz I have seen in many, many, many years. Kudos for the hard work and dedication you have shown to the project over the years. Your tenacity is commendable.

Kuron, cheers, it's appreciated It kept me busy in between jobs although finding the time to progress it further is challenging.
