Importing gpx from ViewRanger (waypoint names)

Yuri Dario shared this problem 7 months ago
Not a Problem

Hi,

now that VR is dead, I'm looking for an alternative app. LocusMap seems the best one, but I have a problem with gpx import. I exported my routes from VR web site and imported them into Locusmap app; everything is fine except for waypoints: all route points are imported as waypoints in LM with an empty name; VR waypoints names are imported correctly but now I have hundreds of waypoints in my routes, which makes things very confusing.

Is there a way to clean unnamed waypoints?

I'm attaching a sample exported gpx

thanks


Yuri

Hi Yuri,


the GPX contains only waypoints so Locus imports it as it is. Is there any other possibility of export from the Viewranger web?

Hi Michal,


no, this is the only possibility for routes since now VR site is in read-only access; BTW I found an option here:

https://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert_input?convert_format=gpx

in advanced options there is "GPX/CSV routepoints" -> "convert to track but include named points as waypoints".

This option produces a good file for Locus but requires some work to convert all files; I can to this by hand since they are only 34.

thanks

Yuri
