Digger can't find digger_config.xml
  • Hi,

    I'm a newbie with Mapfactor.

    I would like to import my own pois into Mapfactor Navigator (Android) and found out, that Digger will prepare the fdata for using with MF.

    I downloaded the Digger vers. 12.1.5 and also the vers. 11.0.47.

    My Files are looking like this (example for one WPT):
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <gpx:gpx version="1.1" creator="POIbase" xmlns:gpx="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1/gpx.xsd http://www.garmin.com/xmlschemas/GpxExtensions/v3 http://www.garmin.com/xmlschemas/GpxExtensions/v3/GpxExtensionsv3.xsd" xmlns:gpxx="http://www.garmin.com/xmlschemas/GpxExtensions/v3">

    <gpx:wpt lat="51.4805649" lon="7.1628400">

    <gpx:desc>[DE-44793] Fegro; Bochumer Straße 119 [D-Bochum-Wattenscheid]</gpx:desc>

    <gpxx:StreetAddress>Bochumer Straße 119 </gpxx:StreetAddress>
    <gpxx:PhoneNumber Category="Phone"></gpxx:PhoneNumber>


    After I choose the GPX-file in Digger (both versions) I get the error "connection failed"

    In the log-file is written this:
    ERR 2019/02/01 17:55:06 XPathNode: can not access source file: D:\Benutzer\Michael\Routenplanung\POI für Mapfactor\digger_11_0_47\import\1.mca\digger_config.xml

    What is the problem?

    Is there any other possibility to create MF POIs from my gpx files?


    Sorry, for my poor english... schooltime is already a few years ago, but I try to do my very best! :-D

  • I have used Digger 12 for several years to import .gpx poi files into Navigator.  In general, no problems.

    In an older thread, someone was having the same issue.  You might want to take a look at it:

    Sometimes, I have found that .gpx files have issues with them.  Opening them in GPX Editor (https://sourceforge.net/projects/gpxeditor/) results in an error message.  I find that opening such a problem file in Extra POI Editor (https://en.freedownloadmanager.org/Windows-PC/Extra-POI-Editor-FREE.htmland then immediately saving it (without making changes) fixes the problem (whatever it was).  You could also try converting from .gpx to .gpx using GPS Babel (https://www.gpsbabel.org/), which might also find/fix an issue.


  • Hi Alan,

    thanks a lot for the informations... I will check when there is some time left. 

  • Meiner Meinung nach hängt das mit Deiner GPX-Quelle zusammen.
    DiggerQT beherrscht zwar GPX-Format, aber das Format, daß Du genutzt hast, ist vermutlich zu modern.

    Wenn Du mit nachfolgendem Aufbau arbeitest, dann funktioniert das Erstellen mit DiggerQT.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <gpx version="1.1" >
        <wpt lat="51.4805649" lon="7.1628400">
            <name>[DE-44793] Fegro; Bochumer Straße 119 [D-Bochum-Wattenscheid]</name>

    Schau mal in Wikipedia nach. Da ist das GPX-Format auch noch einmal erklärt.

    In my opinion this is related to your GPX source.
    DiggerQT can handle GPX format, but the format you used is probably too modern.

    If you are working with the following setup, DiggerQT will work.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <gpx version="1.1" >
        <wpt lat="51.4805649" lon="7.1628400">
            <name>[DE-44793] Fegro; Bochumer Straße 119 [D-Bochum-Wattenscheid]</name>

    Check out Wikipedia. There the GPX format is also explained once again.

Howdy, Stranger!
