Export Area Compatibility
« on: May 19, 2011, 11:54:58 PM »
I've found some limits of the Export Areas button's compatibility.  The software that drives my GPS (Delorme Topo USA) does not recognize the <trk> type objects in .gpx files.  I've had some luck with using GPSBabel to do a transform to <rte>, but none of the methods I've come up with keep the individual areas segregated.  I have just ended up with all the areas connected.  I think I can find a solution for my device, but there are lots of devices out there. 

Does anyone have experience with Garmin or Magellan devices and .gpx files?  Do they all play well with <trk> objects?  How about <rte>?

Can you post a sample .GPX file for your device?  Maybe we can come up with an export that has multiple labels and will work with various GPS devices.
