    Trying to post a track file to the ADV forum. It seems pretty simple to me just browse your PC file for the track file saved in the GPX file format and then click upload. I keep getting error uploading file..........any idea what could be wrong and what I need to do differently?

    TIA

    Attachments are still wonky. Don't know why. But I keep asking. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    Heres a thought,

    M$ in its wonderful wisdom screwed things, if windows ever associates the gpx file as a xml file it saves the file as file.xml, you can rename it to file.gpx but in reality, its file.gpx.xml

    Cure:

    start: run: type cmd and click ok.

    Now you should be looking at a 'dos' window with
    C:\Documents and Settings\your user name>

    If your GPS files are like mine in My Documents\GPS
    type "cd My" then hit the tab key
    this should fill out cd "My Documents" and hit enter.
    type cd GPS or what ever directory your files are in.
    Now type dir file.* file being the name you gave the track.
    type move file.gpx.xml file.gpx
    now your file should upload. Assuming thats the issue.

    Ummmm, no. - See prior post.

    I did send a PM off to the Boss yesterday. He's kind of busy with lots of other things, but hopefully he can look into it and get it fixt soon.
