Greetings,

If you use Microsoft Streets & Trips to export route data via GPX to MapSource or BaseCamp (Garmin products), you already know: it doesn't work.

Crux of the problem is that S&T includes a time stamp in the file that does not conform to the GPX standard.

This weekend I discovered a very useful solution. RouteConverter (http://www.routeconverter.de/home/en) let's you import the S&T GPX file, heals it, and lets you resave it to GPX.

The resulting GPX will then open directly into either MapSource or BaseCamp w/o any issue.

FYI

I've never had any issue exporting GPX to Mapsource or Basecamp, so I knows not of what you speak.... Having the GPX export finally show up in Streets & Trips 2010 was a godsend!

Are you the reason I'm so far above average?
I'm always right, yet it continues to surprise people! How can that be?

I still don't know what it is that didn't work. I've not built a GPX in S&T that didn't go over.
