Can't Import .gpx MapFiles

Postby DavidH » Wed Nov 11, 2015 5:48 am

I am running Pathaway Pro (Ver 6.02.21.05) on a Samsung S5 Smartphone (Android Ver 5.0)

I am trying to import map files from OpenStreetMaps from my PC to the S5. I have used GPSBabel to convert the .osm files to .gpx and copied them to the folder /storage/extSDCard/Pathaway on the S5. When I go to Maps > Import in Pathaway, I can't see the .gpx files, only the .prc files that I have also copied there. I understand that Pathaway can use .gpx map files - what am I doing wrong?

Importing Maps and Data

To import PathAway custom maps, you'll need to convert them to PathAway .prc format. You can use our Map Manager for Windows at http://pathaway.com/convert.htm, or use a third party app such as QuoVadis(Touratech-QV) or Fugawi. See http://pathaway.com/links.htm for map tools and sources.


Map->Import
The Map Import command brings external custom maps into the app. Map Files can be imported directly or from an online service. Currently X-Traverse.com is the only online service available.

Local File: Import local files that have been copied to the current device. Select the files from the file selector.

Supported Maps: PathAway .prc, unprotected BSB/KAP.
X-Traverse Maps: Import X-Traverse downloadable maps available in your X-Traverse account. See http://x-traverse.com for more information on available downloadable maps. Note, that X-Traverse has 2 types of maps available, dynamic WebMaps and downloadable maps. The X-Traverse WebMaps maps are selected via the Maps->WebMaps dialog.
