Streets & Trips 2011 File Transfer to Garmin MapSource RRS feed

  • Question

  • Situation:  Attempted to transfer a route from S&T2011 to MapSource V6.16.3.  Exported S&T2011 route to .gpx file.  Attempted to open .gpx file in MapSource,

    Problem: MapSource reports "Unable to Import....."

    For whatever reason the .gpx file export in S&T2011 contains information that appears to be related to the time zone that is set on the computer.  Specifically, the .gpx file contains numerous instances of the following text string:

                               <time>Invalid DateTime-07:00</time>

    Note that .gpx exports from previous versions of S&T did not contain this string.

    Workaround:  Export the route from S&T2011 to a .gpx file.  Open the .gpx using Notepad.  Do a search & replace for the above text string.  The "replace" box in Notepad should be left blank.  Replace all instances of the above text string.  Save the edited file.  It appears that the edited file can now be imported into MapSource and will show the route correctly.

    Does anyone else have a better workaround?

  • Thank you for your reply.

    While this is frustruating, at least there is a farily simple workaround that requires nothing more than a simple text editor, as described above.  Please feel free to post my solution in your forum if it is not already there.
