convert csv files to gpx

 

Surly this has been covered but I'm new to the forum. Heck I'm new to GPS, Basecamp and I'm not great on computers. I've watched all Norwood's tutorials which are great by the way but I am having trouble converting csv files to gpx. I've downloaded GPS Babel in which one of two things happen. One, it says successful but then I can't find the new gpx file anywhere on my computer. The csv file is still there but not the gpx. Or I get a message saying it was unsuccessful failure code 1.

I've also tried Extra POI Editor but when I convert the file and try to move it I get a message that says the file doesn't exist anymore.

If someone could just tell me a simple way to convert poi's from csv to gpx I would really appreciate it.

GPX

Extra poi editor is the best way if you use windows.
1.Click on file,open and select the csv file you want to convert.
2.Once file shows on epe. Click back on file and select save as. Make sure to select Garmin GPX (*gpx) in save as type. Then click save.
