I have just started to use GPSBabel to transfer .GPX files for usage on a Garmin Edge 305.
GPSBabel - 0.2.8.2
Gramin Training Centre - 3.3.2
I have downloaded three different .GPX files, from 3 separate URLs, and all 3 files fail to load with the following message format, XML Parse Error at nn.
gpsbabel.exe -p "" -r -i gpx -f "C:\Documents and Settings\Andy\My Documents\Biking\Gran Fondo Cymru Sportive May08\MedioFondoCymru2008.gpx" -o garmin -F usb:
GPX: XML parse error at 5: junk after document element
I am using the GPSBabel GUI to generate the CLI syntax and I specify "Routes" in the GUI.
In the Filter section, everything is unchecked.
I did successfully transfer 1 .GPX file to my Garmin. That particular file was created by myself, using Marengo software, so I know that I don't have any connectivity problems.
Can you advise me of where the problem might be ?
I suspect there might be an option in the Filter section, as all 3 .GPX files fail to load, that I need to set ?

There was no such version.

Providing the file would eliminate the ambiguity, but I found a file by that
name at MapMyRide.com seems to read successfully.
"Junk after document element" usually means you're dealing with malformed
file; commonly a program that puts DOS "^Z" markers at the end of the file,
which is forbidden in XML and which our GPX reader will identify as bad.
Please provide one of the files that we can't read and/or run it through an
XML Validator to confirm its correctness.
