User Created Waypoints

Recommended Posts

I created several waypoints for a geocache in GSAK and exported the gpx file. I then imported the gpx file into Cachly and the additional waypoints do not appear. When I imported the same file into three other phone applications plus my Garmin 62s, the additional waypoints appeared. Any ideas on what is causing the problem?

Will the fix work for iCaching waypoints also?

Yes it will. However I don't see a notation in the iCaching GPX files as to if a Waypoint is a user added waypoint, or a cache waypoint. Do you have insight on this?

Darn.  Still no user created waypoints imported to Cachly from an iCaching gpx file.   :(

I just tested this and iCaching waypoints do get imported correctly. They show up under Cache waypoints. Are you seeing this?

Nope.  Just to be clear, I'm talking about a waypoint created in iCaching and exported to a gpx file, then uploaded to Cachly.   I can resend the gpx file if you want to look at it again.  As I said in September, the file correctly shows the user created waypoint when plotted on Google Earth and on my GPSr.

Okay.  Forget what I said.  I recreated the file and tried it again and the waypoint is there.  Sorry for my confusion.

It shows up under the cache waypoint tab and I was expecting it under the user tab.  At first I didn't recognize it since it has no name, and I don't see an option to name the waypoint (like I can do when creating a waypoint within Cachly).  Any suggestions?

In the GPX data, there isn't an indication which Waypoints are cache waypoints or user waypoints. :(

Currently there isn't a way to edit imported waypoints, but I will for sure keep that feature in mind.
