Renaming Files

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to download a series of caches here in W.A. (Gradem 1-7), and because the garmin etrex H only shows 5 letters of the file name, and these cahces all have the same first five letters, it appears that everytime I download a new one, it overwrites the last one. Is there some way that I can download the caches to my computer first, rename them in Windows Explorer then transfer them to my gps in their new format?

You could edit the GPX file and rename them yourself, but I would recommend downloading GSAK (gsak.net) and using the Smart names option when you upload the waypoints to your GPS.

 

GSAK can be trialled for free, but after using it for a few months you'll release it's worth the small fee ClydeE asks for.
