Combining tracks
« on: October 18, 2018, 21:48:46 »
I'm doing a cycle tour and I've managed to get gps tracks for the whole route, probably about 20 gpx files make up the whole route from A to B. My question is can I combine the whole route/track into a single gpx file.
Hoping this is possible I've got a couple of questions. How will the tracks be sequentially arranged as to my eye it's obvious but to how the software does it do I need to specify anything and do I need to worry about direction of travel?
I've stored all the tracks in a single folder in Locus.

Any help appreciated :)

Okay think I figured it out. By going into the list of tracks I can choose what tracks to merge together. But my only problem now is that the tracks 35 in all are appearing with their place/town names whereas when I imported the tracks from Google Drive I gave them a file name (gpx file) which determines their order. So my question is how do I view the tracks with their filenames instead?

Hi,
merge function you found is correct method to do this. Anyway order may be a problem.
What you see in app is name took from "name" defined directly in the file. Filename is not important here in case, name is defined in file. Open any GPX file in any text editor (may recommend Notepad++) and you will there see "<name>track name</name>" field. This needs to be changed, not the name of file.
