Export POIs to gpx with full icon filename

Balazs Goldschmidt shared this idea 7 years ago

When exporting POIs to gpx file, for non-default icons only the png filename is exported, without the including zip file. E.g. POI has icon from locus/icons/ When exported, only "apple" is stored in <sym> tag:


When importing gpx file, the icon is not shown.

Suggestion: store icon name as "", because that is supported. E.g.:


If done manually (i.e. changing in gpx file by hand all such occurances), the import works as expected.

Good day Balazs,

are you exporting GPX files in version 1.1? Because in this case, in export should be extension, something like:

  1. <locus:icon>full path to icon</locus:icon>

so next reimport should correctly display required icon. May you confirm it?



I missed the advanced options. Now, when using gpx v1.1, it works as expected! :)

Thanks for the fast answer!
