How to make GPX import faithful to original route or track?

I guess this is a topic that most of you already faced and that has already been discussed in the past. But I don’t find any recent topic on it and hence I put it back in the light.

I’ve many BaseCamp GPX that I would like to import into my preferred tool, Kurviger. But when doing that there is always a very significant discrepancy between the original (BaseCamp) route or track and the one imported into Kurviger.
How can I manage to have both GPX as close as possible to each other (Garmin vs imported Kurviger)?

Many thanks beforehand!!!

This documentation is quite a bit outdated, but the general approach still stands: Importing a GPX Track into Kurviger [Kurviger Knowledgebase]

Look at the overlay, and place a few waypoints manually.

That said, we are looking at further improving this in the future with more automation, but right now, you would still have to do some manual work.

What would be worth to try is:

  1. prior import turn off all avoidances
  2. start import with fastest route option and check afterwards the divergence vs. the Garmin route
  3. repeat step 2 with next route option and so on until all route options were used.

At least you should find a variant with the lowest divergence, which would be the closest to the origin.

But I fear there is no way to have a 100% similar route after import :saluting_face:


Thank you! I know it’s a tricky question as each app has its own parameters determining routes calculation method. From now on I’m building everything into Kurviger that I really enjoy using, but still have a lot of GPX in BaseCamp that I would like importing into Kurviger.
Again many thanks!

Many thanks and very good idea!!! Will definitely try this one.
