Converting GPX to CVS File

 

Is there any software available to convert .gpx file to
.cvs? Some POI's are only available in .gpx format and I want to know how I can use them in .cvs format. Thanks

GPSUtility should be able

GPSUtility should be able but I have not tried yet.

POI Converter

Gpx toCsv

Go to http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert_input to convert the file to csv file. Under browse upload the gpx file you saved and under Plain text delimiter click on comma. Now click on convert top right. Once the data comes up right click and copy all the columns.
Now pull up your excel sheet and paste the info to it. You will have to switch longitude and latitude and delete column a. Now clean up what you don't need.
13.Now go to file on excel sheet at top and click save as then save as type find csv(comma delimited) and click save. You now have csv file.

You seem to have a Nüvi !! ... Garmin's software is more than capable of processing a .gpx file. By converting it to csv, it's highly likely that much of the detail contained in the file will have to be discarded. That seems a shame!

csv is to gpx, as Mono is to Dolby 5.1 wink

Jury is still out

The jury is still out on which is best, csv or gpx. It depends on its use: csv is easier to author, can be easily edited with Excel and text-editors, appears to be more software available to work with csv POIs, takes less storage room, and many times is quicker loading; gpx can contain more data (but with many GPS units, most of this data can be contained in a csv's field 3 and/or 4).

You may want to look at:

If you don't need the POI to do dialing, I believe csv is the way to go. Most POIs are in csv format. "If your content only needs to be recorded in 'Mono', why waste time and money on 'Dolby 5.1'"?

Converting GPX to CVS File

Thanks Charlie. I appreciate the help.

I will collect my gpx files and try to convert them following your advice.

Very interesting. Thanks LSchwabe for the input. I will try this one and see which one is better compared to geocoder in terms of time.

Download?

I am struggling with your instructions for downloading the .js.txt file.... I seem to only save as text file. What am I missing?

Get rid of the .txt extension

After you download the file, just rename the file to remove the .txt extension.

In other words:

Rename "POIconverter.js.txt"
to "POIconverter.js", that's it.

I also am clueless

I have POIconverter.js in it's own folder and if I drop a POI file on it it gets copied to that folder.

Clicking POIconverter.js loads it into jedit for editing.

Must I have some windows thingy turned on||off? Like a file association. If so what application?

BTW I did strip the .txt already.

EDIT:
I put it in all my sendto folders as well.

Thanks, I was trying to convert during download.....

Drop into the script file, not the folder

Could it be that you are dropping it into the folder, and not the script?

Just make sure you are dropping the file to be converted into the script file, not into the folder.
