After reading the postings on the yahoo group for Magellan meridian, I
tried to convert a track from the SD card into a file for mapsource. I
typed "gpsbabel -t -i megellan -f xxx -o mapsend -F xxx.trk". it created
a file of 1kb, but when I open it into wordpad there is nothing but a
few characters. To be sure that the file on the card was ok, I
downloaded it via serial from the gps directly to mapsend without issue.
Anyone who can tell me what I am doing wrong or post a quick tutorial on
exactly what I should do, I would appreciate it

(I'm assuming you actually spelled "magellan" correctly in the actual
What version of GPSBabel were you using? Mapsend track support was a
pretty recent addition; more recent than the most recent beta, so if
you're not building from source or otherwise using a version newer than
April 4, I wouldn't expect it to work.
If this seems like you're running an older version and you need a binary
cut (i.e. you're a Windows user without compilers) let me know and I'll
zing you one.
 I'm still hoping to march toward a release by the end of this month,
but personal events are conspiring against it. Garmin icon issues
are the only thing left on my personal "must fix" list...
