Honda Tripplanner GPX

Post by stan0614 »



I’m getting pretty good at planning a trip on the http://tripplanner.honda.com and importing into the NAV system on the Gl1800.
So now I am planning a dice run that will leave the starting point at various times and I want to share the GPX file with other potential ride captains.
I email out the .gpx file that I imported into the NAV on the bike.

They say they cannot read the file. Granted they are harley riders but I do not know why they cannot read what I sent them.
I have two questions -

What application is the best to import a GPX file on a Windows and Mac that shows the route?

I can import the GPX file into Google earth or Google map but it does not show the route, just the WAYPOINTS I put into the trip planner GPX file. Other than honda trip planner how do you view the MAP ( not the straight-line waypoints ) ?

I'm pretty sure you can also view it in Garmin Basecamp, but why not just have these people view it on Honda's tripplanner or is it possible that the Harley guys can't spell Honda. :lol:

Yup, Garmin Base Camp will import it and install it on a Garmin GPS.

Make it easier for them to access by using the tool at http://veloroutes.org/upload/ Input the .gpx file, upload, save and grab the URL containing the Google Map with the route highlighted. Here's a sample of the output based on a GPX file I had from sometime ago: http://veloroutes.org/bikemaps/?route=137926#

Hope this helps!

I've got a 2012 Gold Wing and am struggling with the export of gpx routes that I've planned in Honda Trip Planner. I'm aware of the SD card in the trunk of the GW and know I need to use my laptop (it's a MacBook Air) to transfer (export) the routes from Trip Planner to GW.
Any chance someone can tell me what the files on their SD card look like?
I know there needs to be a "Garmin" folder, and then a "GPS" subfolder? or ???? and is there another sub-folder after that?
Also, when you drag the gpx routes over to the SD card, are you dragging and dropping onto the SD card icon on the laptop or are you opening it and then dragging the gpx route into... which folder/sub-folder?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks.

@BamBola

The 'Honda Trip Planner' doesn't create a route, but creates a series of waypoints. When that series of waypoints (stored in the GPX file) is read by the GPS, *then* the route is created.

Now, you *can* create that 'routed series of waypoints' by *saving* the route from your GPS back to the SD card.

The file size should go from tens of kilobytes to hundreds of kilobytes, or even larger.

Recall that the 2012-2017 GPS is a Garmin-manufactured GPS. From this, additional GPS extension functions that are Garmin-specific are included; some GPS' are unable to handle some of these extensions.

As far as where the GPX files live, they live on the *second* SD card. What you're describing is the contents of the main SD card, which should never be disturbed.

Honda Trip Planner output (a few carriage returns added for viewing clarity only...):

Code: Select all

So, this simple file is then loaded into a GPS, then the GPS creates the file. The GPS will expand it to actually create points along the path.

They look like:

Code: Select all

        <gpxx:RoutePointExtension>
          <gpxx:Subclass>000000000000FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF</gpxx:Subclass>
          <gpxx:rpt lat="34.726523654535413" lon="-114.31593504734337">
            <gpxx:Subclass>030014EA5C0184A80B0021160000F4007900</gpxx:Subclass>
          </gpxx:rpt>
          <gpxx:rpt lat="34.726924896240234" lon="-114.31617736816406" />
          <gpxx:rpt lat="34.726924896240234" lon="-114.31617736816406" />
          <gpxx:rpt lat="34.727332592010498" lon="-114.31637048721313" />
          <gpxx:rpt lat="34.727761745452881" lon="-114.31649923324585" />
          <gpxx:rpt lat="34.72827672958374" lon="-114.31658506393433" /> 
Thousands of those points between your 'waypoints' contains your route data.

Hopefully, this helps explain why the file you generated with HTP didn't work.
