After selecting
Download Trek and then selecting Gpx as format
the file appears in my downloads.
I can't work out what happens from here. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Rob,

just copy it and paste into a folder that you can then access it from via Ozi or whatever program you'r' using. Rename it to something useful.

Cheers.

Hi John,
Did CTRL C and then CTRL V to paste it into the folder where I store ExplorOz downloads but nothing happens.

Hi Rob

You can not copy and paste a Gpx. file. From OziExplorer go to Load>Import GPX file then navigate to your downloaded file. This will open the relative file.
If using OziExplorer it is better to download the Trek in OziExplorer format. See details here Trek download
Trust this helps

Cheers

Terry

Hi Terry and Rob.

You can copy and paste a GPX file. I did forget that you need to right clk the file to open the 'containing folder'. You then need to copy/paste to the desired folder.

It then stores as a GPX file which you need to import into Ozi using the 'import GPX' option under the Load button.

I've just done it and it has worked perfectly incl the waypts.

But I agree that downloading it as Ozi format in the first place is also good.

Cheers.

Thanks John, This is the way I remember doing it. But, as you say, it is good to do both.
