The new update (Gen3 v3.0 & Gen2 touch v5.0) has now SL3 as logfile format and the logfile-option is ever pre-setted to SL3 after a new start from the unit!

RM cannot use this format, only Insight Genesis. If you farther want to use logfiles in RM - you must change the logfile settings to SL2!!!

Also the gpx export option from Insight Genesi (the base is the SL3 format) only can give you the depth informations.

Thanks for update!
i was uploading one file to Insight Genesis yesterday and they didn't accept SL2 anymore. Now i know why. The question is for how long we will be able to record SL2 with HDS units.

Thanks for the heads up Jorg. Kestas, I would be very surprised if Insight Genesis had stopped accepting SL2 files - there will be lots of older units that can't be upgraded to produce SL3 and I'm sure Navico would like to collect all the data that they can. Could there be another explanation?

It is even pre-setted to SL3 after stopping a sonarlogfile . So be sure to choose SL2 (or SLG) before starting a new one. But rembember, it is still possbile to record in the old formats SL2 and SLG.

Is Reefmaster going to accept SL3 files in the future?

I missed the fact that the unit now defaults to SL3 format and just got back from a trip that I really want to import into RM. Is there anything out there that can convert the SL3 to an SL2 format?

No, not that I know of. The only way to use the SL3-files is to upload them to Insight Genesis and then download them again as GPX.

Maybe interesting to know, when importing GPX from Insight Genesis into Reefmaster:

I have a Simrad NSS9 EVO2 which does the same - it defaults to SL3 format each time I go to record a file. Nuisance really as need to remember to change it each time.

You may be able to set the SL3 file up to play via the simulator on the HDS, then set the simulator to save as sl2. Its very similar to the way you can cut sl2 files, or convert to xtf. I dont have a gen 3 so dont know if this facility still exists.
