    Hi, this didn't work in that it said it imported the file, but the screen says it successfully imported tracks.  The file contained only waypoints, and there doesn't seem to be an option to have it import waypoints.

     

    Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks

    pbolstad,

    What file format did you use? The same thing happened to me when I imported as a kmz but when I tried the same track and points as a gpx if seemed to work fine

    Hi, I tried both. I used DNRGPS to export a gpx from a shape file, and QGIS to export a kml/kmz from the same shape file. The kml brought over the points, but each point has an I'd I'd like to keep, at that seems to be lost. The gpx import only seems to want to bring in tracks. I know the file is o.k, because the gpx points display when I put them into QGIS.
    Thanks

    @pbolstad can you click 'Submit a Request' above and send the file to the support team? Someone can definitely take a closer look.

    FWIW I think the 'Successfully Imported Tracks' message is generic and can apply to waypoints as well. You should be able to find everything in a folder within the app after import.

    For current Dropbox app for iOS, you have to open up the file and select "Export" and then "Open in" and select Gaia GPS.
