Summary: Do you know how to translate a Track Log into a gpx file?
Smart Phones: With most smart phone programs such as Backcountry Navigator, you must use their "export" function. "Export" means "translate". Translate the track log into .gpx format. The export function causes the .gpx file to be placed into a folder on your phone. For example, with Backcountry Navigator, the folder is called bcnav/out.
Garmin: On a Garmin GPS, you must first "save" the current track log. Once you've done that, no translation step is necessary. Saved Track logs are immediately visible as gpx files as soon as you plug in the gps.
Once you have the .gpx file ready on your GPS, you can then copy it onto your computer.
The reference table Standard GPS Operations describes exporting track logs for various types of GPS and phone.
