Hi,

I'm trying to load/import a couple of single waypoints (stored as standard .gpx files) into MapSource 6.15.6, but I can't see any way to do this, apart from the File>Open menu item, which then wipes out all of the other data currently on view.

I've tried using the "File/URL" option in the waypoint properties window, but that doesn't seem to want to load .gpx files...

Any help or comments appreciated, as ever!

Cheers,

Mike.

There are several options.
My preferred methods.
1 - Select all waypoints (draw a box around them), cut to clipboard, open next GPX file and past waypoints from the clipboard.
2 - Open another instance of Garmin MapSource and cut/paste to the other window and save as a new GPX file.
3 - Use another free uliilty. G7ToWin is my favourite. Open multiple GPX files and resave.

You can also select/ delete /copy the desired tracks / way points in the pull out window using the 'edit' function.
