GPX files

Recommended Posts

Just signed up as a premium member hoping to be able to download cache pages in the gpx format instead of loc. format. I downloaded GPS Connect, Garmin Comm plugin, and Babel, all for the Mac OSX. I have Etrex Venture gps. All that will download into my gps are loc files. What am I missing? Is my gps not good enough to get complete gpx files? HELP

The Etrex Venture is not a paperless unit, therefore you will not have descriptions, hints, logs, etc. displayed on the unit.

yup it can't even directly load a .loc file - needs 3rd party software to load the data in those (as well as basic info from a gpx).

Although these statements may be true, they lack an answer to the question. The answer is no. Your GPS CAN handle GPX files, you just need the right software. Try some of these and see which one you like best!
