opening a GDB without a Garmin?
« on: May 18, 2009, 08:44:20 am »
I've put the GPS track of my event (I put it as a track as the route goes AOF as usual; people can presumably trace out their own waypoints from it)

here

Is there any way of opening it without a Garmin GPS map? is there a free program you can download to allow you to preview it like with Excel Viewer? (bikely doesn't seem to want to)

Save it as  .GPX rather than gdb - most of the online mapping tools can read GPX.

Mapsource (I assume you have this ?) can save in GPX format.

also, i couldn't open your zipfile with WinZip, error message :
" skipping: Corker.gdb  this file is not in the standard Zip 2.0 format
   Please see WinZip® - Unsupported Zip Format for more information"

try again; Winzip 2.1 saved it as a zipx but the AUK website won't support it unless I make it a .zip
