Help with Extra POI Editor V6.04

 

I installed Extra POI Editor V6.04 and set it up according to the instructions given in ‘POI Factory’s tutorial. Then I downloaded the ‘Campgrounds And RV Parks Combined’ file into EPE, everything looks fine in EPE.

When saved in GPX format and imported in BaseCamp, I get only the campgrounds names. No address or phone number. I have tried everything I could think of without success. Some help would greatly be appreciated.

Thank-you

EPE

I downloaded the file, opened it in EPE and then saved it as a GPX file. Then opened it up in BaseCamp and all locations have the address and a phone number once you either click on a location or opt to open this location.
All in one long string!

EPE can't download to gpx file type

For some reason I can get EPE to work bit it won't download the file in gpx format even though I save as GPX. BaseCamp keeps coming up with an error message and so does MapSource! I've tried many times and I have got to be missing something?
Any help would be appreciated.

Why don't you open you GPX file in Wordpad and look at the first POI. See if it contains what you think it ought to have.

Hi, when I save or save as

Hi,
when I save or save as the EPE I do not have the option of saving the file to anything but to csv, xls, etc NO Wordpad?
Like I said I can not get the EPE to save to a gpx file, that is my problem. I have reloaded the EPE directly from the new link and tried. When I use the 4 column method and verify my excel spreadsheet the columns in the spreadsheet match the columns in EPE. the EPE even shows as much as it can the Google map location of the waypoint?
I have used EPE many times, but I must be doing something wrong.

Hi, when I save the EPE results into a 4 column csv this is what I get which is correct as to what I want to do.

This is what I cannot do!Save the file as a gpx file! The file type keeps showing up as a variation of the Ecxcel file xls, even though the save as bar says Garmin gpx?

Thanks, Robert

Just an afterthought

Are you sure after you are saving the file-as .gpx, you are looking in the right place? Check the file date on the .csv and see if it is current.

Which file?

Which file did you download? Was it from POI Factory?

EPE V6.04 saves/loads GPX files OK for me.

It's been a while

It's been a while since I did any work with EPE but, if I remember correctly EPE needs to be told that it can save GPX format and the format set in the GPX options. Look at my tutorial on converting CSV to GPX and make certain you have everything set correctly.

Illiterate? Write for free help.

Not quite

.gpx files are XML files and follow a certain set of guidelines. EPE cannot change the way they are stored. Perhaps you're thinking of the multi column .csv file saving where EPE needs to know what each column does.

GPX support is builtin to EpE

EPE will automatically load/save .GPX files. No configuration is required
