I just found data relating to air tracks (.out files) which contain lat/lon info but can't seem to open them in GM - I've attached a file so if you could take a look and advise if it is possible I'd be grateful.:)

    The only thing preventing those files from loading is the use of a + sign as a coordinate separator, which is not supported by Global Mapper (mainly because that's a valid character in a number). If you load a .out file in a text editor (like Notepad) and do a search-and-replace on + with something like , then you should be able to load the file with the File->Open Generic ASCII Data File menu command.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
