GPXtoPOI release notes as of 3/2/07

 

This program converts from GPX format to CSV format or vice versa. You can create waypoints in MapSource and then convert them to POI (CSV) files for download or sharing with others.

 

You can also convert POI (CSV) files that others have created, and then edit them in MapSource. Now that the Garmin POI loader supports GPX files, GPXtoPOI's most important role is CSV to GPX conversion.

The program has a few other special features:

1- Support for a command line interface, if you want to make it part of a batch, or just have shortcut that does a predefined conversion.

2- Profile mode where an external profile can be used, allowing special conversions (one to many/many to one and various filters and text generation options).

3- Support for the fourth CSV parameter for comment information (which can include address, phone number, etc).

4- In the Waypoint/GPX file, you can include @NN (for instance @55) at the end of the waypoint name to indicate the alert speed, or you can put @55 in the "description" field for the waypoint in MapSource. It will automatically attach it to the name.

5- When converting from POI (CSV) to GPX, if there is an @55, or @25, etc. in the name, it will pull that off of the name, and dump the speed information into the description field.

 

The following is the procedure for creating waypoints in MapSource and converting a CSV file:

1. Create one or more waypoints (each one is a POI). If the POI has a speed associated with it, enter the speed as @xx (where xx is the speed) in the description field for the waypoint.

2. Save the waypoint file as GPX format. (You can keep it in this form for future editing.)

3. Start GPXtoPOI, and select the GPX-->POI option, along with the input and output file names. Then click convert to generate the output file.
