Export/Import GPX Route
I quite often proceed as follows: Use the route planner for planning a walk. Saving locally and reuse works fine. Exporting as GPX gives the choice between export as track(1) or convert to route(2). Now the problems begin:
- Reimporting the track in Locus seems to work fine. I see the track and the previously marked waypoints and can change the way properly. Importing the route into the route planner I get a route containing all the intermediate waypoints automatically created by Locus as routing points. This cannot be used ton maintain the route properly.
- Reimporting the track or route into another app (here easy routes on windows) leads her to a track or route, respectively. Both contain all the hundreds of points, that where generated by locus when I edited the original path.
No the problem: I want a gpx-route(!) that contains my and only my fiew waypoints when creating the route on locus before export. This is a classical route. When importing somewhare else it leads to the risk, that the router there (if available) creates another way from my waypoints. The advatage is, that the route can be maintained properly for personal needs on any device with any software.
If I want to export an exact way, I have the option of the gpx-track. This is available.
Summary: I want to export a route with only my waypoints, that needs a routing software to be reused and maintained on any device. To my knowledge, this is the standard GPX-route.
