Help needed =20
I'm kind of a beginner in the 'GPS Jungle'. Happy to find GPSBabel to
convert csv files of POIs to GPX or MPS but I'm having a problem...! The
translated coordinates seem to be all wrong but consistently : all POIs
translated emigrate from France (where there should be) to somewhere I =
locate in estern Africa....!
For instance :=20
Original (csv) coordinates : -1.35489,46.61534
TRanslated coordinates as read in Mapsource : S1 21.293 E46 36.920
What am I doing wrong ....?
The version of mapsource is 6.11.1
Thank you for your help

If I swap your longtitude and latitude values (the 'csv' format lists
lat followed by lon) I get a position in France on D746.
You need to
A) include a hemisphere hint in your data
B) Use an existing format (such as 'garmin_poi') that happens lists
the fields in this (relatively rare) order.
C) or define a new format via our style mechanism
that describes your CSV format.
