Now let's have a look at 300m scale. Nicer? However, Bobcat is still in beta.

The tracklog looks similar to mapsource. My MBP is not with me right now so cannot take screenshot..

It seems that it is not saving in .gdb but in .gpx similar to the format in the unit. However, it can read both .gdb and .gpx.
