GPS location system (logger) GP-102 G-Porter, how to process routes and POIs.
Canmore, renkforce, NavGear

German page, translated into a simplified English.


Preliminary notes:
The device appears to be under several brand names, e.g. Canmore GP-102, renkforce GP-102, NavGear OC-300 (as of Feb. 2019).
Unfortunately updates can not be checked here and here (as of May 2018).
However, a software download may be done at Conrad.
The programs „CanWay“ and „CanWay Planner“ are included with the GP-102.
POIs = Point (s) Of Interest
Tracks are called routes in the manual of the GP-102.


Probably the best way to handle tracks / routes and POIs is through the GPS Visualizer.

Import the tracks from the GPS device into the „CanWay“ program and export them from there into the GPX format.
Import the POIs from the GPS device into the program „CanWay Planner“ and save them as a   .sav file /// or export them into the GPX format.

Either click „Convert to GPX“ in the GPS Visualizer home page or go to this page and fill in the gray input field as follows:
Click the Radio button „GPX“
Below:
Fil #1 — record the GPX file of the tracks / routes
Fil #2 — record the   .sav file of the POI /// or record the GPX export file of the POI

[+] show advances options — click it and record it as follows:
Track Options: Trackpoint distance threshold — optional
Waypoint Options: Include waypoints All

Now click on „Convert“ in the grey box at the top right.
For more information, see „GPS Visualizer Output“.
The result is a GPX file containing the POIs and the route (track).


Alternative:

Import the tracks from the GPS device into the „CanWay“ program and export them there in GPX format.
Import POI from the GPS device into the program „CanWay Planner“ and export it to GPX format.
Merge the GPX (tracks) and the GPX (POI) with the GPX editor into a single GPX file.
The GPX Editor offers limited options for GPX editing.
Alternative to the GPX Editor: Viking (advanced editing options).
Other alternatives: see search engines.


Alternative:

Read in the tracks from the GPS device into the „CanWay“ program and from there export them to the GPX format.
Read in POI from the GPS device into the program „CanWay Planner“ and from there export them to the GPX format.

Create a map as with the online tool umap (OSM) and import the GPX files each individually.
You can edit and adapt the created map.
From umap (OSM), output the entered GPX data (tracks and POI) to a single GPX file by clicking from menu to menu at the righthand border of the screen as follows:
gear
extended actions
download
GPX
download and open or save data
(these 4 terms are translated from German)

Note: umap also processes other data formats, as e.g. KML.


Alternative:

Read in the tracks from the GPS device into the „CanWay“ program and from there export them to the GPX format.
Read in POI from the GPS device into the program „CanWay Planner“ and from there export them to the GPX format.

Create a map as with the online tool sharemap  and import the GPX files each individually.
GPX POIs are not visible in sharemap, so it is better to use KML.
The map can be further edited and customized.

Remember that sharemap requires the Adobe Flash Player.


Important note:
A GPX / KML file exported from umap or sharemap no longer contains an elevation. Use the GPS Visualizer.
With this tool you might be able to restore the elevation values.
