PC Editor - How to transfer tracks to/from my GPS?
« on: September 09, 2010, 09:23:41 am »
Question : How can I import/export tracks between my GPS and Geolives PC Editor?

Answer :

Several connection modes are available. The connection mode to choose depends on your GPS model :

For most GPS devices, you can use Garmin Basecamp software to transfer the tracks from/to your GPS : http://www.garmin.com/us/products/onthetrail/basecamp
You can use the GPX format to transfer the tracks between Basecamp software and Geolives PC Editor (you can use the "Import a GPX file" and "Export a GPX file" options in the "File" menu of Geolives PC Editor)

For the most recent GPS devices, they are directly accessible from Windows Explorer as a storage device. In that case, you can transfer your GPX files to and from your GPS device thanks to the "Import a GPX file" and "Export a GPX file" options in the "File" menu of Geolives PC Editor.

For less recent GPS devices

- If they are recognized by Geolives PC Editor, you can use the "GPS">"Import"/"Export" options to transfer tracks to and from your GPS after setting up your GPS type (menu "GPS" > "Configuration")

Here is the list of GPS devices which are compatible with this option

Warning : For some GPS devices, you have to define a name for the trail which is different from the default name in the trail properties in order to be able to export the trail to the GPS device.
