Import GPX-Files

Ok, you got your GPX-file, how do you get it into GeOrg? This is only a short overview. There’s also a step-by-step description with screenshots

Importing the GPX-file from the SDcard

You will have to copy the GPX-file onto your SDcard. This will probably mean sharing your android-device as an USB-storage and copying the GPX-file onto its storage. GeOrgs default directory for importing GPX-files is “georg_data” on your SDcard. You can copy your GPX-file anywhere onto your SDcard, though. The import-dialog will let you navigate there.

Having copied the file to your device, the next step is to import the file. The first step is to disconnect your USB-connection, because else GeOrg will not have access to your SDcard.

Also, if you haven’t yet done, please create a CacheDatabase (CacheDB) from GeOrgs Main-Page (you can create it via the MENU-key).
If you now switch to this CacheDB, you will find an “Import GPX”-menu-entry there. It will lead you to a File-Dialog where you can select your GPX-file and import it into your current CacheDB.

Importing the GPX-file from an email

This is probably the easiest way to import a GPX-file. If you get your zipped GPX-file via email and access this email-account via your android-phone, you can open the attached GPX-file (in Google’s email-client via “Preview”). GeOrg is subscribed to handle zipped email-attachments. If you preview any zipped attachment (like e.g. your PocketQuery-result), it will offer to import it as an GPX-file. Of course, if your Zip-file doesn’t really contain a GPX-file, the import will fail …
