Garmin GDB -> GPX Conversion fail
#1
Garmin GDB (aka. Garmin GPS Database Version 3 as produced by latest version of MapSource) file conversion to GPX does not seem to work.
I ran

Code:
java -jar RouteConverterCmdLine.jar test.gdb Gpx10Format test.gpx

and received a basically empty GPX file. Source and result file plus console dump attached. Using Java 8 Update 91 on Win7x64.

Code:
c:\temp>java -version
java version "1.8.0_91"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_91-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.91-b14, mixed mode)

I've tried this here and got a simple GPX with 1 position:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<gpx xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0" version="1.0" creator="RouteConverter 2.25">

So probably you're using not GPSBabel 1.5.4?

Hello Christian,

A couple of years ago I used JaVaWa RTWtool to convert to a standardized GPX track.  Is it easier to work with GPSBabel or BaseCamp, if I need to upload many files (converted to GPX) and then compare them?

Best,

Dear Jeff,

I don't know these tools well. At least GPSBabel allows for some automation when you use it on the command line and in scripts.
