The software is able to store the NMEA logs parallel to normal card view, but also in navigation mode. It is the real GPS position stored and not the displayed one!! The software tries to position the arrow always on the nearest street.

First you have to edit the file NavLib.ini in the MobileNavigator folder (MN|6: Edit mn6/NaviLib.ini). Search here for the section [GPS]. If it not exist create it. Then enter the line Autolog=1. This enables the logging function. 0 means no logging. Store the file.

All logs are stored in the Windows folder (From MN|6.2: Stored in mn6 folder). So be careful with long trips! They are named "GPS Log Day-Month-Year Hour-Minute.txt".

When your tracks are logged you can move the files with ActiveSync on your computer and translate it with gpsbabel from NMEA to GPX. And now you can load them into Editors.
