Hello -- to import into DAST change file name to *.txt and use WAYPOINT - IMPORT - WAYPOINT/ROUTE FILES (*.txt)

They will load into DAST. Then save them in *wpt format
WAYPOINT - SAVE TO FILE.

Close DAST and start Mapsend Lite v2

Load the *wpt file - GPS CONTENTS - WAYPOINTS - LOAD FROM FILE

Save the file in *.upt (explorist) format
GPS CONTENTS - WAYPOINTS - SAVE TO FILE

Open up OziExplorer and change configuration settings (Alt +C) for GPS to Magellan usb. This makes Ozi think you have explorist. Load waypoints using MAGELLAN - GET WAYPOINTS FROM GPS

Cheers
Greg

...must have been a big day or Im going blind - sorry my instructions refer to waypoints and not tracks ...same procedure should work though.
