How can I copy the Route Data file?

Hi, I promise you that I've searched and I can't find an answer for this one:


I use OpenCPN on my laptop for route planning and I want to find a way to copy the route data table shown in “Route Manager, Properties” to something like a CSV file or, just to be able to copy it and paste in almost any other application.


I want to do that so that I can make a log file on the fly just by copying the route data.


I have played with EasyGPX and that does not do the trick. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,


James

You can export your routes to a GPX file. Will that solve your problem?

It can be done using GPSBabel
GPSBabel: convert, upload, download data from GPS and Map programs
Suppose you have a route.
1 - 'Export (all)' from OpenCpn Route Manager in .gpx format
2 - Import in GPSBabel selecting the 'file' format GPX XML format
3 - Export it with 'Output' 'File' using 'Tab delimitated field'

(Opens fine in e.g. Excel)

Fantastic!!! I'm not getting the same data format but I guess I'll need to play with it to find out why not. (Distance, Time, Speed etc. are very strange) BUT, it's one heck of a step in the right direction and I thank you for your help...James (And if you already know how to correct the Distance etc. etc. please let me know)
Thanks again

Not really (I only knew it could be done, but I had never looked at the results)
The distances seem cumulative and in kilometers (divide by 1.852 to get NM)
