    HI there. So, MApyx Quo is a nice piece of software that has UK Ornance Survey mapping on it. I can create routes, waypoints etc here. I can export the routes as a gpx file, import them in to Garmin Connect, and then send them to my chosen GArmin device.

    However, I cannot do this with any "waypoiont sets" that I have created in the Quo software. I tried sending the waypoints as a gpx file - nope! GArmin Connect says I need to import as a gpx or a tcx file only.

    Can ANYONE please tell me how I can get these waypoints, created on MApyx Quo, on to the display of my GArmin unit (an Edge 1040 Solar).

    I really dont want to have to laboriously recreate all these wapoints in GArmin Connect itself!

    MAny thanks in advance.

    Steve A :)

    You could save gpx files containg waypoints to your computer and then with the Edge1040 also connected to the computer copy the saved gpx files to the Edge1040 /Garmin/GPX folder

    The waypoints are not created as part of a gpx file (route). They are created separately, as individual waypoints. So - same question?? Thanks

    I'm not suggesting they are part of a route, however in a program such as Garmin Basecamp it is possible to create a waypoint (or set of waypoints) and then select the waypoint (or set of waypoints) and save them as a gpx file, this file can then be copied to the /Garmin/GPX folder, it doesn't seem unreasonable to presume that Mapyx Que will allow you to do the same thing
