If you want to use speedcam files for iGO navigation software, you may need to convert them from TXT format to SPUD format. SPUD files are binary files that contain speed camera information and coordinates. TXT files are plain text files that can be edited with any text editor.
One way to convert TXT files to SPUD files is to use a software called SPUD - KML Spudtxt Tool 4 iGO Version 1.7. This software can also convert SPUD files to KML files, which are XML files that can be viewed with Google Earth or other map applications.
To use this software, you need to download it from the internet. One possible source is the GPS Power forum[^1^], where you can find the software as an attachment in a thread titled Software to Convert files txt - SPUD - KML Spudtxt Tool 4 iGO Version 1.7. You may need to register and log in to access the attachment.
After downloading the software, you need to extract it from the ZIP file and run the executable file Spudtxt Tool 4 iGO.exe. You will see a window with several buttons and options. To convert TXT files to SPUD files, you need to do the following steps:
Select the TXT button on the left side of the window.
Browse and select the TXT file that you want to convert. You can also drag and drop the file into the window.
Select the SPUD button on the right side of the window.
Browse and select the folder where you want to save the converted SPUD file. You can also type the file name in the text box below.
Click on the Convert button at the bottom of the window. You will see a message saying Conversion completed successfully! when the process is done.
You can now use the SPUD file for your iGO speedcam folder. To convert SPUD files to KML files, you can follow similar steps but select different buttons and options.
If you have any problems or questions about using this software, you can visit the GPS Power forum[^1^] and ask for help from other users. You can also find other sources of information and downloads for this software on SoundCloud[^2^] [^3^].Here are some tips and tricks for using iGO navigation software:
