Hi all,

Just been playing around with a demo of GPS Tuner on my PPC. It has a function to convert a GPX track to a GPX route, using some simplifying algorithm to reduce the number of points. This would be very useful within TB, allowing you to 'TrackBack' along your previous journey or to follow a track that you have recorded before.

I suppose such a function could be implemented within the waypoints menu, perhaps an 'IMPORT FROM TRACK' which would open tracks from tracks-gpx or tracks-nmea and save a GPX route within wpts?

A GPX to NMEA convertor would also be useful on a PPC as it would allow importing of TB tracks recorded in GPX format into Memory Map's Pocket Navigator whilst away from a desktop PC.

What do people think?

This sounds reasonable. I've been refusing to list tracks in waypoints menu because the tracks are large (in terms of number of wpts), however some smart on-the-fly import to reduce the number could be the solution...

Attached below is an example track converted to route with GPSTuner. Interestingly, it works in TB but I can't open it with memorymap or EasyGPS. (Correction: Latest version of EasyGPS opens the file fine. A SaveAs to a new GPX route file then opens up in Memory Map without problems) Must something to do with the formatting. If TB could have a feature like this with output files that are able to be launched in MemoryMap etc that would be great!!
