I just installed gpsbabel-1.2.6_beta06082005 on a Windows XP machine. I
recorded both track and waypoint data with a Garmin Vista C, which I then
converted into a gpx file using MapSource. I'd like to convert the track
data in the gpx files into an easily-read format such as csv using gpsbabel.
However, gpsbabel will only convert the waypoint information in the gpx
file, and not the track data, even though I am specifying the '-t' flag.
Here's what I enter at the command prompt of the windows 'run' window.
gpsbabel.exe -t -i gpx -f 06242005_track.gpx -o csv -F 06242005_track.csv
Even though I have the -t flag, the output file 06242005_track.csv contains
the waypoints and no track data. How can I force gpsbabel to read the track

Are you sure that 06242005_track.gpx contains track data? (Pop it open
in your favorite text editor and see if you see "track stuff" of the
approximate shape of:
<trkpt lat="30.062183333" lon="-91.610350000">
<trkpt lat="30.062783333" lon="-91.610566667">
If I run
gpsbabel -t -i gpx -f reference/track/tracks.gpx -o csv -F blah
the first five lines of blah are:
30.06218, -91.61035, RPT001
30.06278, -91.61057, RPT002
30.06270, -91.60827, RPT003
30.06233, -91.60738, RPT004
30.06153, -91.60528, RPT005
which is, I think, what you're saying you're not getting.
