Copy GPX waypoints to new map?
« on: December 06, 2017, 03:41:37 AM »
Hi Guys :)
I have a GPS track log file full of waypoints that opens with GPSMapEdit software,
but Iím wondering if thereís a way to import that as map POIs to be exported as a map?

Right now, the only way I can see to do it is to create new points manually using the GPX
file points as an overlay, but there are many points.
Cheers, Brek.

Not real clear on what you're trying to do. Do you want a "map" (.img file) as an overlay for another map? Seems to me that this would be straightforward to do with GPSMapEdit.

But maybe one of these programs would work for you? They provide a simple way to create .img files from .gpx files. The first one is free. I have not used either one myself.

Hi :) No, I want to create a map file using a GPX file as the data for the POIs.
One of those programs might do it though, Thanks :)

In GPSMapedit, you simply select all of the waypoints and right click, then convert to points.  Save and compile as a transparent map.
