  • At the bottom of the Landmarks Explorer window, select the “+” menu item;
  • Choose to create a new “GPX File.

If needed, click on the newly created GPX file to open it. Then, select the “+ menu item again to add GPX landmarks.


How to convert landmarks to the GPX format ?

You can convert waypoints, routes and tracks to the GPX format from AlpineQuest using the copy/paste feature.

  • Long-click on a landmark and select the “Copy” context menu item;
  • Browse an existing GPX file or create a new one (Click on the “Create” bottom menu item and choose “GPX File”, see above more more details);
