[not so Closed] Improvement export/import waypoints

[not so Closed] Improvement export/import waypoints

Postby ARI » Fri Sep 16, 2011 3:27 pm

Now that I can import my waypoints on FR 305, I found that:
when exporting on FR305, the names are converted to upper case, reduced to 8 characters without diacritics (é è ...).
when importing, the management of duplicates seems to compare the names imported with the actual name:
I think the comparison should be with the name as the plugin would give if it were to export it (possibly with control coordinates).

if I made ​​ an import after an export, the plugin giving me duplicates all of the waypoints.
I'm not sure to be clear ...

You ARE clear :)

Some GPS devices have limitations (upper case, length, ...) for WP names. And the edge305 is a rather limited device.
The plugin can't know what a particular type of GPS does to waypoint names.

So it's best to implement the intelligence in wet ware, i.e. YOU:
Simply name your waypoints in uppercase, 8 letters only.

Hello, i just have a try and .... even i use 8 chars uppercase name, i get double.
By the way, it could still be a good ide to have a "long name" field (not necessarily the key field) even is's only for WP exchange with others...

regards

Can you please attach an exported and zipped GPX file of one of the doublettes, e.g. "DRESINNE" and I'll have a look why the plugin doesn't consider them as equal.

Cheers,
OMB

Ok, the difference is that the waypoint when re-imported from edge305 has lost its comment.
Must have a 2nd thought if I can change the algorithms to tolarate some loss of information when importing data.

EDIT: ok, that wasn't too hard. I've just uploaded a new version with this change, lots of new features and several bug fixes.
