Conversion of GPX for Geocaching

Postby Mandox » Thu Jul 05, 2007 11:34 am

Hi there,
Pathaway is a great tool for geocaching. The most popular information source for cache-locations is geocaching.com, where you can download waypoints in gpx format.
When using the Pathaway Data Transfer Utility, most of this valuable information is not converted to the pathaway point format. Only title, location and a subtitle are transformed. But the most important information lies within the <long description> tag (besides a number of geocaching-specific infos).
Is there a way to transfer this info into the "notes" section of pathaway points?
Would be a great help!

Can you send me some example GPX files so we can ensure we import these details?

Hi Scott

I am new in geocaching and also new to PW.

I am wondering whether the "description"and the "reveal clue" which are included in the GPX-file from geocaching.com can be shown in PathAway ?

I searched the forum and found the same question, but no answer.

Or would this feature be included in Version 5 ?

Thanks for your help.

Greetings from Switzerland
