GPS Data Corruption in XLS Format for Longer Measurements
I am a high school teacher from Japan. Thank you for developing phyphox. In my classes, it's an indispensable tool for small-scale experiments.


When saving long-duration GPS measurements as xls, the file gets corrupted.
I instruct my students to analyze the GPS data and then upload it to Google Drive and work on it in Google Spreadsheets.
Data for about 10 minutes seems to display without issues, and I had no problems in my preliminary tests.
However, I've received reports from some students that their files are corrupted and can't be opened on Google Drive. One student's file had about 900 rows of data. When I downloaded it on a Windows PC and repaired the file in Excel, it was restored to normal.
I'm hoping for an output file format that won't get corrupted.
If immediate improvements are challenging, could you provide information on how much data or duration might lead to this issue?

Looking forward to further developments of phyphox. Thank you. Smile
