So what ? Smile
If you don't use tools like gpx editors, merging two gpx files to one takes less than one minute in ... Notepad Wink
Probably most of typical gpx editors will remove extensions specific for geocaching from file, case is rather unusual Smile
To be clear - in my opinion is better to have well working support for complex gpx first, before merging content from many gpx-es to display them in app ...

You mean just merging them will do the trick? I never thought of trying that as I did not expect that this will work, so I will give it a try and report back later ...

Yep Smile
I don't believe that merging full caches gpx info with track, ie by hand, will work in TB as one gpx file now.
But if you use some gpx editor to merge files, you can get file containig caches basic info like positions and ie track or route, working well in app.
This way, it is possible to play with planners to build ie geocaching trip plan, means using reduced caches data as points with positions, etc.
Edit
OK, just tried to see Smile
Simple geocache file (one cache inside) was merged with sample track using GPX Editor first. As expected, editor removed extended cache info, but basic info is enough to set navigation to it. Cache & track are listed both in TB and visible on screen as usual (picts 1,2 below) Smile
And next, second gpx file with full geocaching content was opened, as possible in TB, sorted by distance to select proper cache and full info for cache is available in app too (pict 3) Smile

Meanwhile I managed to merge my Geocaching waypoints with my planned route trackpoints, a sample is attached.

Both the route line and my waypoints are shown. But this just works only if I do not add further waypoints while using TB. If I add wpts and do not quit TB, everything stays fine. But if I quit and restart TB with the same GPX file, everything is scrambled up.
If I look inside the modified gpx, it turns out that all my former routepoints are converted to waypoints, so there isn't a <route></route> section anymore.

So if that also could be fixed this would be fine, then I personally do not need the requested feature anymore as I'm using this merged GPX files both on my TB and in MotionX GPS (iOS)

Thanks
Stefan

@Shen, Hi,

Yes, it's possible to manage .gpx files with text editor but necessary to prepare it on PC ...
Feature is interesting because i want to use (display) lot's of gpx files (water points, rescue points, paraglide limits, etc ...) and in same time running Trekbuddy navigation (with track gpx file)
So, because i've not often PC under hand when "outdoor", it's more flexible and easier for me to have this feature ... Seems better maybe to have the two possibilities Wink
