View Full Version : Another OziExplorer GPX Export Problem

8th December 2005, 05:39 AM
Hi all,

I have uncovered another problem with the new GPX export facility. Until Des fixes this bug, there is a simple workaround. When preparing data for export, avoid using the following characters in description fields;

& < > ' "

These five characters have special meanings in GPX and XML and will usually crash a GPX import.

OziExplorer is not the only GPX compliant application that doesn't handle these characters correctly, so it's worth being aware of the problem when handling GPX files in any application.

This bug is fixed and will be included in the next version release.

However, keep in mind that these characters are still not handled correctly in
other applications and can still possibly cause trouble.
