Post GDAK
Does anyone have any experience of using GDAK on an Android Tablet ?

In particular can you generate GPX files and upload them to a Garmin via USB?

I'm looking to replacing an aging laptop for when I go travelling and am seriously looking at a tablet - probably a Sony Xperia Z

Any help much appreciated - thanks in advance

James

I don't have experience with gdak, but if you have internet access your could try the pocket query app, regarding thettablet, not all support OTG connections

you dont make a gpx file :shock: you go to tools in gSAK and click, second from the bottom you see 'file finder' click
then use the drop bar in the next window to locate 'databases' click
this will open the windows file folder that has the data base file located in it , right click and copy the database you want.
this is the file that must be pasted into the GDAK file folder on the droid .
i copy the folder to my micro sd in the eee pad , then copy and past it to the GDAK folder on the droid , works well.
if ya droid is rooted and synced to your PC you can do it all on the pc

hope that helps

Getting the database onto GDAK shouldnt be an issue.

What I'm after is taking a selection of caches and uploadiing from the droid to my garmin.
I imagine this would be a case of exporting a filter selection as gpx and then copying to the Garmin, rather than using the "send waypoints" fuction in gsak
