For over 1 year now I have been mentioning in personal correspondence with Hammerhead that many .gpx files which I download from internet sites are not uploadable to my dashboard via "Add -> Import Route". The importer just fails, silently, and refuses to import the .gpx file.
Yes, I can:
- Import the .gpx file into Garmin Basecamp, then export it again, and that is uploadable to the dashboard
- Import the .gpx file into Gps Visualizer, then export it again, and that is uploadable to the dashboard
However if I'm on the road and do not have my laptop, only my phone, this becomes difficult.
The "Add -> Import Route" function needs to be made much more tolerant so that it does not simply fail when the .gpx file contains data it does not understand; rather, it should proceed to extract the set of x,y,z coordinates that make up the heart of the track.
It should never fail.
--> I can upload a sample .gpx file that can be imported perfectly into Garmin Basecamp but is always rejected by the "Add -> Import Route" function, as an attachment, if you show me how.
