GPX files

Postby Furthermore » Sun Aug 12, 2012 12:58 pm

Since I don't own a GPS, I usually don't upload GPX files to my reports; however, I was wondering if it was possible to upload 2 GPX files to one report? Al's GPS died on our last trip so our route is broken into two segments. I was curious if there was a way to upload them both?

A gpx file is nothing more than a textual data file.

Using notepad you should be able to delete the "footer" information from the earlier track and delete the header information from the later track and build one complete track file.

Or if he's using Garmin MapSource, he could load both sets of tracks and save it as one .GPX file. MapSource allows for saving a file as type .GPX

Got the route sewed together via notepad. Thanks.
