Can I change a saved gpx to a route or track?

Post by ealderton » Sun Oct 04, 2015 8:57 pm

I want to display a walk in wikiloc, but wikiloc wants it as a route, not as just waypoints.

The file is saved in .gpx on alpinequest, and shows up fine there, but is there a way to export the file to a trk or rte?

Many thanks

E.

There's a free Windows program called RouteConverter at www.routeconverter.com which will convert your track to a route (or vice versa).

Another Windows program I find useful is GPS Track Editor at http://www.gpstrackeditor.com. With this you can easily tidy up a track with false points in it (eg from inside buildings)

Hi and thanks for the delay.
Unfortunately there is no easy way to convert landmarks from one type to the other, so I guess the easiest way would be to use an online convert tool just like ds47uk suggests.
An alternative method I sometimes use from the app is to export the waypoints in a CSV file, and then import this file again as a route, but it's quite tricky...
Best regards
