magellan waypoint conversion problem

PROBLEM - converting Magellan Meridian waypoints to GPX XML

IN SUM - despite "result successful" message, output file only contains formatting codes and has no geographic location data at all.


DETAILS
========
GPSBABEL ver 1.5.3 (newly downloaded and installed)

OS = Windows 7, fully updated as of March 2016
    (A) System is 64 bit
    (B) But I also tried running in XP compatability mode (32 bit)

The data file is an old one, of the sort I used to covert all the time with an early version of the software.

Settings....
Input = file
Format = magellan sd (as for Meridian)
Waypoints checked
Filters button = waypoints checked, rest blank

Button for more options = all blank
Options button (under output) = all blank

This works for me from the repository and the command line.  What was the command line shown in the gui?

Re: magellan waypoint conversion problem

Robert Lipe-4
Thanx, tsteven4.

On those early formats that were entrenched in serial comms, -w, -r, and -t combined strangely.  If you're reading or writing a file, you'd convert everything because of course you would. When you were looking at many minutes of transfers over a serial port, it's not like it was wise to read 10,000 trackpoints when you really only wanted to read the 10 waypoints for your camp site, parking lot, trailhead, etc.  So they're sort of radio buttons but not actually radio buttons.  The map330/Meridian/first-gen exporist era devices were essentially serial formats bludgeoned into files.

This is admittedly a weakness in our "gui only has a casual knowledge of the command line" architecture.

In reply to this post by tsteven4-2
Thanks tsteven, that works.

GUI feedback..... once I paid attention I found I had NOT unchecked
tracks and routes.  Instead, in my prior tests, I had clicked filters
button which produces a pop up.   In that popup I did indeed uncheck
tracks and routes.  Thinking I had turned them off I did the testing  
but apparently all I had done was turn ON the option of turning them
OFF.    I thought I had done the second step too, but guess not.

Good to go now, thanks.
