Downloading Waypoints from text file?

Recommended Posts

Guest ekobres

Does anyone know of a program that will import waypoints from a plain text file? I have about 200 lat/lon waypoints in a text file formatted like this:

 

WPTNAME, NDD MM SS, WDD MM SS, DESCRIPTION,...

 

I would like to suck these into a program that can load them onto my Garmin GPS. Mapsource will import PCX5 data -- but what I have is essentially a list. Mapsource can also export a text file, and I could format my list like that, but it has no provision to import a text file! I can format the list pretty much any way required.

 

Any ideas?

G7ToWin can do this, but it needs to be a fixed format, rather than a CSV file.

 

Also, Street Atlas should allow you to do this. It will read the file, and plot the positions as Drawn Objects (blue diamonds by default). You can then upload the Drawn Objects as waypoints into your GPS.

Thanks guys.

 

I found a program that does a wonderful job at it: GPSUtility. It was able to read the file with almost no formatting changes!
