+as77 Posted March 16, 2004 Share Posted March 16, 2004 Hi, I use Pocketmap Navigator (PMN, a Pocket PC road navigation program) for in-car navigation and I rather like it but, being a geocacher, I have always been bothered by the fact that there is no easy way to import cache coordinates into the program. Although PMN can store "favorite points" and even latitudes and longitudes can be entered, it cannot import any of the known waypoint file formats, nor can any software I know of export to "PMN format". So I just sat down and wrote my own program to do that. What came out is a pretty nice Windows program that can import PMN's favorites file, plus GPX or LOC files containing cache locations and descriptions, combine the two into one list and and export it to PMN's native "favorite points" file format. Additionally, it can also manage the "favorite points" (edit, modify, delete points, add new point, etc.). Using the exported file with PMN, all cache locations appear on the map and PMN can navigate to them. I can also view the cache descriptions from within PMN. I gave my program the name "PMN Cacher". Is anyone else interested in this utility? If yes, I could set up a web page with more info and the download. Quote Link to comment
