Imported waypoints always have basic symbol

Postby SuysH » Fri Aug 19, 2016 8:09 pm

When importing a gpx file with waypoints, pathaway always give it the standard 'Point' symbol.
Example : in the gpx file the symbol format is <sym>Car</sym>.
Any idea what is wrong?

I did some tests with exporting and importing.
What I found is the difference in format of symbol naming.

When I export a waypoint database from Quovadis I get :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<gpx xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0/gpx.xsd" version="1.0" creator="QuoVadis 7.1.0.33" xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0">
<name>qv7</name>
<wpt lat="51.1347162658148" lon="2.74115324020386">
<ele>1.001</ele>
<time>0001-01-01T00:00:00Z</time>
<name>Kinderboerderij De Lenspolder</name>
<desc />
<sym>Zoo</sym>
</wpt>
</gpx>

When exporting the same symbol with Pathaway I get:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<gpx version="1.0"
creator="PathAway - http://pathaway.com"
xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0/gpx.xsd">
<bounds minlat="0.00000000" minlon="2.74115300" maxlat="0.00000000" maxlon="2.74115300"/>
<wpt lat="51.13471603" lon="2.74115300"><ele> 1</ele><time>2038-01-19T03:14:07Z</time>
<name><![CDATA[Kinderboerderij De Lenspolder]]></name>
<sym>GRM:8219</sym>
</wpt>
</gpx>

Searching on internet shows that Garmin has given each symbol a number, page 28 of the next document
http://www.garmin.com/support/pdf/iop_spec.pdf

I’m looking for a way to try synchronize QuoVadis with Pathaway.
When importing the ‘in Pathaway exported waypoint-file’ the resulting symbol in Quovadis is also not right until you select in the symbol list : “WPsGarmin16”.
