Importing Waypoints

I have hundreds of waypoints I'd like to import to OpenCPN. The only important data they need are name, latitude, and longitude. I figured this would be a snap and converted from .csv to .gpx using GPSBabel's universal csv format with field structure in the first line. It seems to make a perfectly good .gpx file but OpenCPN doesn't import the waypoints. As in, I go through the process and no waypoints are imported.

A sample file of my project is attached.

Any thoughts? Or is there an easier way to do this?

Thanks!
Justin

Re: Importing Waypoints

Never mind, fixed, silly mistake. Due to the GPSBabel default settings OpenCPN was thinking the file was a track I was importing, so I had like 20 tracks imported that I hadn't noticed because I was looking for waypoints :-/

Yes, also all the Latitudes were south when they should have been north =)
