So you have to restrict the colours inside QGIS to a 16-bit palette. 8-bit_color or 256 colours would be on the safe side. Using vector data by exporting GPX files is much easier, but restricted to 200 tracks. ...

This suggests that the transformation by the CoordTrans software is not including any datum shift of any kind. I don’t the know the details of how you are interfacing the Trimble to the CoordTrans software, but perhaps the ...
