    Hi Mark, we have tried to incorporate all the GPX file and correct the formatting errors. However, there are always some of them that do not fall under the standard that's accepted by our Dashboard. If you can send these files with us, we would love to correct them for you. I understand this would be much more difficult when you are on the field, and perhaps connecting your Karoo 2 via hotspot to your Phone, and upload these on Strava/RidewithGPS for the URL import - it could serve as a workaround.

    Hi Ali,

    Sorry but that is not really an answer.
    I'm importing a completely standard .gpx file.
    Garmin Basecamp can correctly process it.
    Gps Visualizer can correctly process it.
    I don't have or need Strava / RidewithGPS.

    What needs to be done is for your software to properly handle errors during the import of .gpx, .kml, etc. files, such that the X / Y / Z coords of the track are not thrown away. A junior programmer dealing with XML files for the first time would be able to attain this with a little effort!

    I certainly don't wish to send such files to Hammerhead, on a routine basis, as a response will take days and I need to import within seconds.

    I cannot reply to the email for this chat - how can I upload a sample .gpx file that fails the dashboard import test so you can see the trouble I'm having?

    Best, Mark
