[closed] How to import GPX files?

Post by phippster » Sat Oct 17, 2015 10:42 am

AlpineQuest doesn't 'see' my GPX file - It reports that "This place is empty" when I browse to the maps folder. What am I doing wrong?

Hi,
To access your GPX files, click on the "Landmarks" menu, then "Landmarks explorer" and then browse the folder where your GPX files are.
Let me know if you have an issue.
Best regards

Hello, Im having the exact same problem. I have 3 .gpx files and OffLineMaps reports "This place is empty" when I browse to the maps folder.
Im not sure why.

Hi,
You need the ad-free version of OfflineMaps to import GPX or KML files.

I'm a little confused by the answers in this thread. I've downloaded a few Gig of bing satellite imagery. I have a gpx file with a few hundred waypoints that I'd like to overlay on the satellite imagery. Do I:

1) copy the gpx file over from my pc and import it using the landmarks feature?
2) first download another app called "offlinelinemaps" and then download the gpx file using the landmarks feature?
3) download the gpx file from within the "offlinemaps" app?
4) something else entirely?

Sorry if it wasn't clear.

You can overlay GPX items with those two apps, just be sure you already use one of then:
- AlpineQuest;
- OfflineMaps+.

Then,
1) Copy the GPX file(s) on your device (by email, dropbox, USB transfert from PC, etc);
2) Using one of the applications above, click on the "Landmarks" menu, then "Explore landmarks" and browse the folder where are your GPX files;
3) Click on a file to open it, then select the items you want to display (to display all waypoints, long press any of them and select "Display all").

Let me know if something is not clear
Best regards
