Google Earth to MapSource Fail

Willem S. Rudolph

Hi

 

In Google Earth, I have saved a file (.kml) that contains a range of placeholders. I have tried to convert that to a .gdb file for use in MapSource but I keep getting this failure in GPSBabel, what am I doing wrong?

 

"gpsbabel -w -r -t -i kml -f C:/Users/WillR/Documents/FAM Route C Test 2.kmz -o gdb,cat=1 -F C:/Users/WillR/Documents/WSR Test Route C.gdb

XML Reader:Read error: Encountered incorrectly encoded content. (C:/Users/WillR/Documents/FAM Route C Test 2.kmz, line 1, col 1)

 

Error running gpsbabel: Process exited unsucessfully with code 1"

 

Will

I did the same thing. KMZ files are *compressed* KML files. You need to unzip first.

Any way to get waypoint timestamps into GPX output?

gpsbabel -w -r -t -i tpo3 -f input.tpo -o gpx -F output.gpx
  |    <wpt lat="36.727710009" lon="-118.357049942">
  |      <ele>42916904.000000</ele>
  |      <name>GOLDBL</name>
  |      <cmt>GOLDEN BEAR 1120</cmt>
  |      <desc>GOLDEN BEAR 1120</desc>
  |    </wpt>

When writing GPX with the Topo software, all tracks are lost but waypoints have timestamps:
  |     <wpt lat="36.7277100086212" lon="-118.3570499420166">
  |         <ele>-32768.000</ele>
  |         <time>2006-07-26T20:32:10Z</time>
  |         <name>GOLDBL</name>
  |         <desc>GOLDEN BEAR 1120</desc>
  |     </wpt>
