Default Woe is me.........Bottom Machine Confusion

I am really struggling with this whole file formatting stuff.

Does anyone use the HumminbirdPC software to load and edit there numbers in there Humminbird machine?

Reason I ask is because when I try and take a listing of numbers, convert them using GPSVisualizer.com to convert them to a .GPX file it will not work using the HumminbirdPC software. It says, "...gpx is not valid. cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'gpx' "

At this point I am sure it is operator error, again. I just can't find any help online and I don't know anyone personally with a Humminbird. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Why not just enter them into your machine ? 1 at a time, most do.

Actually now that I think about it I had the same problem but when I hit ok it uploaded them anyway. Keep playing with it may need to reformat the .gpx file

If he has 1,000 or so numbers it would take forever

hsiF deR,
Not all format conversion software is the same. A couple of things to try. You can grab he gpx file I posted as a "test" (https://www.pensacolafishingforum.com...uly2011-93898/). These were converted using GPS Utils. Another very good program is GPSBabel.
Another thing you may want to try is to use a file that only has lat,long, and a simple id; sometimes the extra data fields cause troubles.
Just a few suggestions. Entering coords one at a time can get time consuming.

I have a humminbird gps unit and use the software ...
gps bable and google earth will get it done.
you may have one of two possible formats. ie gpx
good luck. some times you will have to delete some of a long name to get it to work

GPS Babel keeps telling me that, "No valid routes/waypoints/tracks translation specified"

I dont understand because I am selecting the file types and then trying to convert it and it says the same thing everytime. I converted the .gpx file you created with no problem.

Thanks, I appreciate that but, I got one for the escambia county that worked. I have been trying to work on the Oakaloosa/Walton/Bay file.

I figured I should probably learn how to convert these things since it seems that numbers are never formatted the way I need them.
