I too can't find any documentation for this feature of the Nautilus Lifeline software.
It seems the unit records GPS locations as waypoints.
But when and how?
Can I tell it to store a GPS location and if so, how?
This feature exports these stored GPS locations into a text file that is saved on my computer.
These locations can be displayed on a map via the Nautilus Lifeline web site.
Instead of allowing me it copy and paste the GPS locations into other services, it would be nice to enable me to save the GPS locations as a GPX file for easy transfer into a boat's GPS unit or mapping software. Even better if you also let me choose to save the GPS locations as a KLM file for use with Google Maps/Earth etc.
I just want to provide some clarification on the GPS export feature. The Lifeline can store up to 32 GPS points in its memory and it stores a new point every 100m. Once 32 points are stored, they will begin to be overwritten.
To export your GPS points, connect your lifeline to your computer and open the lifeline desktop software. Click the button which says "Export GPS Points to Map". You will have the option to save them as a file on your computer and you will also be taken to a webpage which will show the points on a map.
We appreciate your feedback and please let us know if you have any further questions.
