    This GPX will not import

    First, thank you for taking a look at my post.

    I am working on a few program developments in VB6 (freeware if anyone wanted it) ("universally compatible") to handle GPX files.

    I have this one GPX file (well, all of them so far...) that I created from scratch which will NOT import into MapSource or GoogleEarth. I get the generic "could not import" message box from both.

    Please examine the format and advise what changes I need to make? AFAIK, its a very plain vanilla GPX that meets the criteria, but Im stumped why it wont work!


    All it is, is a GPX with one waypoint. :eek:


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
    <gpx creator="Andrew Daniel" version="1.1">
    <wpt lat="37.315286" lon="-80.028722">

    <cmt>Woods</cmt>
    </wpt>
    </gpx>



    Thank you kindly for this kindergarten question help!

    I fixed it with bable, tried to post the reformated GPX but I get a BBS message that says I cant post links with less than 25 post count... BUT THERES NO LINK, plus wrapping it in CODE still wont work...


    Anyway, the bable rewrite works fine. I think Im missing some critical elements.

    What are the bare necessary elements for a GPX please, if you have the free time?
