GPX eXchange file problems?

Recommended Posts

I am fed up with having to seriously overhaul and edit those GPX eXchange files! CRAZY GARMIN!


I have a zumo 450 and when I upload the .gpx files (xml code) The only information displayed is the name, type of cache, and difficulty/terrain.


Missing are the long and short descriptions, clue, and logs.


I have to manual copy/paste all of that information into the <desc> tags. Anything below the first <desc> tag doesn't seem to work. It takes about 5min PER GPX file to edit that info.


Anyone know of a more simple resolution to seeing ALL of the info contained in the GPX file?


whew. Thanks in advance! :)

In that the zumo was not designed for the specific alterations of the Geocaching implmentation of GPX - you will need to find some macro or software that can auto manipulate it into the correct format.


what is the correct format? Any certain language?

Are you using MacCaching software?


I tinkerd with it, but it won't recognize my GPS :) I get numerous error messages about it not being able to claim the interface. Seems other zumo users are having issues with MacCaching


Now that would make an interesting Mac commercial......
