Program to open Mapsource files (.gdb)


Followers 1

Recommended Posts

I've been away from GPS file manipulation programs for a LONG time.

 

I have/use Mapsource.

 

I wish to share my waypoints in Mapsource format (.gdb) with a family member who has a mapping garmin gps, but no Mapsource program, not a big gps user.

 

We live in different states. I would like to send my .gdb files and have them open the file with a program and download data to their gps.

 

I can do this with GPSBabel (convert to .gpx) and then EasyGPS (download to gps).

 

Is there a single step option?

 

Are the better programs (free) to use than those I listed here?

 

Thx.

You can save your data (.gdb) in Mapsource as a .gpx file. Go to File/Save As and choose .gpx. That's all you need, then share away.
