<cmt> GPX Extension supported?

Hello,

I often get gpx files which include the <cmt>Infotext</cmt> extension to give additional importatnt information.

I use Locus Pro 3.17.0 and it seems not to support that extension (by ignoring it).

Any help possible?

Cheers

Good day Andreas,

<cmt> parameter should be visible on first tab of point screen. When you tap on a point in list or on a map, you do not see it? May you please attach any file for test here? (maybe you will have to pack it to zip or rename to txt file, to be able to attach it).

It is a route. There are waypoints in, but no <cmt> visible in the the track or in the waypoint tabs. I'll post an (modified) example here:

<rte>

<name>Route 1</name>

<cmt>Track-Information</cmt>

<rtept lat="5x.xxxxxx" lon="-4.xxxxxxx">

<ele>0</ele>

<time>0001-01-01T00:00:00Z</time>

<name>WPT351</name>

<desc ></desc>

<sym>Point</sym>

</rtept>

<rtept lat="5x.xxx" lon="-4.xxxxxx">

<ele>0</ele>

<time>0001-01-01T00:00:00Z</time>

<name>WPT352</name>

<desc ></desc>

<sym>Point</sym>

</rtept>

</rte>

Ah, you are talking about track/route. Correct, support for comments in track were missing. I've added them, so it should work in next version. I did not tested it, so let me know if there will be any problem.

As soon as you release it. I would test it immediately, as I need it urgent.
