This is related to ticket #56

CompeGPS does not use the same format in the WPT files it makes as GPSDump and OziExplorer WPT files. It's unfortunate, but not much we can do about it.

You have two ways of solving it

  1. Open the waypoints in CompeGPS, and download to a GPS directly from Compe. Then use GPSDump to read from the GPS again, and save from GPSDump as WPT.
  1. Try to convert the file using GPSBabel.

I do not have CompeGPS on my computer anymore, so I cannot convert the file for you. If you still have problems I might find an old version of Compe and try to help you!

Best regards, Oyvind Ellefsen
