Navigator identify's the waypoint/poi-list only as a Tracking/Routing-List
  • Hi!
    I understand how .gpx files are working (incl. Routes, Tracks and Waypoints).

    Since the last update/version of Mapfactor Navigator i can't import my POI/Waypoint (Favorites) List to the Favorites of the Navigator.
    Starting the import of the .gpx File to the Navigator, it identify's the waypoint/poi-list as a Tracking/Routing-List.
    Got 100 Waypoints in my list, needing for my job.
    Thx for any help!

  • This was just a discription to explane my problem.
    We talk about MapFactor Navigator, the one a pay for.
  • I have the same problem.
    Create an gpx file with Mapfactor Navigator with only waypoints, no routes or tracks.
    Copy the gpx file to my android phone
    Select the gpx file on my android phone
    GPX file is imported in Mapfactor as a routing list, not as individual waypoints.

    This used to work, how can I get this to work again?

  • if GPX file contains waypoints (wpt), then it is
    imported as routing points set and you can use it to navigate if it
    conatins trackpoints (trkpt), then it is imported as track

    it is quite well explained here

  • But I want the waypoints to appear as favorites, not as part of one route.
    I have a lot of waypoints for my travel through Jordan (hotels, viewpoints etc.), and I want to be able to select an individual waypoint to navigate to and not have all the waypoints imported as one route.

    Last november I could do this.

    As an example, below a part of the gpx file, generated by basecamp that I import in mapfactor.
    It only contains waypoints (wpt), but mapfactor seems to import it as routepoints (rtept)

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><gpx creator="Garmin Desktop App" version="1.1"

  • you cannot import GPX to favourites, what makes you think that it was possible in previous versions?
  • Because in a past version this was possible, exactly as discribed. Now as a workaround I'm editing the favourites file directly. If You once got used to it it's not too hard. Take the gpx, convert it to a MFN file with GPS Babel and paste the result to Your favourites.xml, not too complicated.
  • One of the reasons I chose mapfactor over a lot of other routeplanners (I tried quite a few), and paid for the premium options was  how easy it was to import waypoints into the favorites.
    For me that is essential for how I use this app on my travels.
    I now findt that this is not possible anymore.

    I will try the method of 2highlander or maybe start using google offline maps instead, that will also work for me

  • to my knowledge this has not changed
