Toll daß man die Namen der Wegpunkte in der App 1.13 ändern kann.
Jetzt fehlt es nur noch im Planer.

It’s a Beta version to test the waypoint names in the app.

That can be examined by @boldtrn later in its topic:

Don’t have this option in my android phone app.
Is that only for laptop?

Hi, it’s only in BETA so far, please check the first line of the first post for instructions here:

Fantastic! This is a great feature! This is the only item I really missed so far. It should be available on the desktop version before the app since most planning is done on large screens.

Development is done by different people and the 2 platforms are independent of each other.

Here we can discuss app’s implementation. The website has its own separate feature topic:


auch ich fände es Prima, wenn ich die Wegpunknamen in Web-Planer eingeben kann. Genau das wollte ich gerade mit einigen Wegpunkten im Web-Planer machen.

Werden diese Namen dann auch in der GPX-Datei gespeichert?

Viele Grüße


You can use the new GPX (offline) format which supports waypoint names (until the server is updated).

Die Benennung der “wichtigen” Wegpunkte in kurviger-pro klappt prima! Sie werden sogar nach dem Export (.kurviger “offline” ) beim Re-Import von übernommen und bleiben in den meisten Fällen auch nach weiterer Bearbeitung der Route erhalten. Siehe
Beim Export mit (.gpx “offline”) - den ich nur zur Weitergabe an Mitfahrer benötige - fehlt mir noch etwas. Ich würde gerne auch hier zusätzliche Wegpunkte zur Vereinheitlichung der Strecke einfügen - geht das? DANKE!

Naming the “important” waypoints in kurviger-pro works great! They are even taken over after the export (.kurviger “offline”) when re-importing into and in most cases remain even after further processing of the route. see
When exporting with (.gpx “offline”) - which I only need to pass on to fellow riders - I still miss something. I would like to add additional waypoints to unify the route - is that possible? THANK YOU!

Sorry - the link above doesn’t work correctly - just import the attached kurviger-file to see the names of some waypoints. Sharing the route seems to rename all waypoints …

That is not possible in GPX (offline) format, it exports the route unmodified.

The website will support waypoint names later:

Hello, thanks for adding the feature Waypoint-Names. It would also be nice to have the Waypoint-Names imported from .gpx files. Currently the waypoint names are exported to gpx but not imported.

If wpt elements in GPX file have filled their “name” tag then their names are imported too.

Or do you have some sample GPX that does not work?

I simply exported a Route with the Kurviger App as gpx and imported the Route again. Waypoints-Names exist in the exported GPX-File, but when reimporting the Route specific Names are lost. Using 1.13.3 Beta

(please post also the export & import dialog details, so we can understand & reproduce)

When export waypoint names, must use Kurviger or GPX (offline) formats.

Probably you select “Route” instead of “Waypoints” when export & import a route?
I can add parsing of names also from the route rtept elements inside the GPX file.

Yes i did this as you said. Parsing names from the route rtept<> tags would be nice. Think about importing gpx routes from a different source with existing names. Nice work you did on the current Beta.

It will be available in next version.
