That may be displaying the actual time of day (converted from hours into 836 minutes), when you seem to really want the relative time within your session. One possibility would be to use the "Calculated Field" functionality to subtract the starting time so that your session starts with a zero time...

1) Double-click on your data file under the "Input Files" list to open its configuration screen
2) Go down to "Calculated Field 1", change the name from "Custom" to "Session Time", set "Input Field" to use the current time data column, then change the operation to "Subtract", and enter 50202.67 in the box to the right. (50202.67 is 836:42.67 converted to seconds)
3) Click OK to exit that screen

4) Double-click on your timer display object to open its properties box
5) Change the "Field" selection to be the new "Session Time" data channel that you just created
6) Instead of starting at 836:42.67, it should now appear to start at zero

Hmmmm, thas not so.

The Problem is the Timestamp from the Sony GPS LOG File.

I have 3 Sample files but i dont understand this to become allway correct Timer Datas.

So i hope you test the files from my Sony HDR-AZ1
