Have a look at the Exp help. The formats and requirements are specified in there. Note that you need both a boat id file and a position report file.

​You can also use the YB Tracking download or manually download to see examples of the files.

​The xml is from the API option in the YB Tracking download. It isn't as useful offshore as the files are a lot larger. It is only designed to get multiple positions.

The mark and start positions are saved in the log file. If using Playback, you can tell Exp to use these. There is a button on the ribbon

It can accept several names for the boat id file

For a YB Trackign example where c6002016-expedition.txt is the position report file: 

c6002016-boatids.txt

or BoatId.csv
or boatids.txt

The generic answer for crashes is to turn off Avoid C-Map land and if that doesn't help, try the Expedition System restore in case something unknown has got messed up. If it still occurs, mail me the grib file(s), polar  and marks.dat course file.

It should be in Racing; Race tracking.

I have heard the help file isn't always updated. No idea why. One solution is to delete it (Expedition.chm) and it will be automatically reinstalled when you start Exp.

You could try Exp system restore, but it would be good to know what is causing it. Maybe send me the grib file?
