GPX to GGZ

8 posts in this topic

Hello!

 

I create small windows commandline tool for converting set of PQ GPX files into one GGZ file. It is good for Garmin Oregon 6xx holders.

 

So, you can use any your favourite software for generate PQ GPX (or download it directly from the geocaching.com web) and convert it into one big GGZ file.

 

See: GGZgen

Hi --I have a Oregon 600 and can load the GPX files , but the unit does not see the files as geocache files. I now assume one needs to convert them to GGZ for this unit. Is this correct? , if so this is a dadgum nuisance and naughty of Garmin to impose this new format with NO reading support.

 

I down load your converter , unzip , but the application does not run - it runs for a fraction of a second then closes ..PLEASE help , leaving on world trip and need to load many geocache to this GPS ..PLS assist --anyone can help , will be appreciated --regards dave

It is a command line program. You need to run it from a command line.

 

GSAK will also make GGZs for you.

Plug your Garmin in, run the standard export macro and check ggz. Much easier than a DOS command line interface and if you already have GSAK it is a breeze.
