Mariner GPS Dashboard – Export Logbook to Plaintext for Blogging and Presenting

Mariner GPS Dashboard features an automated logbook capability that records your progress, position, engine running time, and weather info between regular intervals. As of Mariner 3.6, you can export your logbook data in a versatile and easily-readable Plaintext format (.txt).

Plaintext is the most ideal of all the export formats for blogging and presenting. It’s ready to be pasted straight on to a blog, or styled and converted into a PDF or word document.

This format was inspired by the cruise blog of M.V.Kevayling, which features JSON exports from Mariner on some of their trips. We included it to make it seamless for bloggers to present, and easier for audiences to read.
