Does anyone know how to import Saltwater Central GPX data into Homeport SUCCESSFULLY
 
I've tried removing all of the single quotes, as was suggested, but I always get "An unknown error has occurred" message.

I struggled with this for a long time and finally found the answer (at least it worked for me). Go to GPSies.com and sign up. Download the file from Saltwater Central to your desktop. It should be a GPX file. Now I know this seems redundant but....open GPSies.com and proceed to the conversion page. Convert the GPX file you downloaded from SC to a new GPX file and import the newly created file into Homeport. Make sure the "waypoints" box is checked when you convert in GPSies. I think "routes" is the default. I DID NOT remove the single quotes before I did this so I don't know if that will cause a problem or not.

I have a similar issue with GPX files from Simrad to Homeport. I use GPS visualizer to convert the GPX into a GPX and that fixes the problem.

GPS Visualizer: Convert GPS files to plain text or GPX

Thanks to both of you. I tried comparing the contents of GPX files from SWC and exported from Homeport, and manual conversion looked like a real PITA.

Tried the GPS Visualizer, and it worked like a charm! No manual mods needed.

Thanks again.
