It seams, that the problem is the first line of the track. If I change this line with the first line of my tracks, then your track is working.

This is the first line of my NMEA files:

I have track logs from an Olympus camera with the same issue not being recognized as a valid gps file. The work around is to change the .log extension to .nmea

After changing the extension geosetter recognized, plotted the point accurately and easily applied coordinates when processed. This process is manageable for a couple of tracks, however for multiple track I use xcopy to create readable files. This can be done in via command prompt or by creating a batch file within the folder.

Here is a sample of coordinates listed within the .log file which are basically nmea format. If they are plugged into any mapping app the location should be the Grand Isle.
