Upload to GPS

Today, many sources for GPS data are available. Besides tour planing in QV, you can also download various types of geodatea (waypoints, tracks, routes, geocaches, etc.) from many internet GPS platforms.

Following, we describe the upload of a route to a GPS unit as an example. Please proceed as follows:

  • Connect your GPS with the serial or USB cable with your PC and switch it on. You have to configure the interface to your GPS unit once in order to enable data communication. Most GPS units will be identidied automatically when clicking the Send to GPS image2142261298.jpg or Receive from GPS image23321855.jpg icons. For further advice please refer to the chapter Connecting your GPS to a PC.
  • Open the QV X-Plorer by clicking on the image365436316.jpg icon.
  • Mark the route(s) which you want to upload (see below).
  • Click on the Send to GPS image2142261298.jpg icon. The GPS Upload assistent will open.
  • In the first window¬† (below right) QV will list the detected GPS unit(s) and the corresponding Ports. If more than one GPS unit is connected, you can choose from various brands or ports, or trigger an automatic scan through the Find GPS button.¬† Simply tickmark one of the listed models.
  • Continue with Next or directly start the export by clicking Finish.
