Not sure if GM is capable of this operation?

I need toexport a GPX file (waypoints only) containing 2 attributes values from a SHP file into thename of the waypoint in the GPX file.

But whenexporting the GPX, “unknown point feature” is the given name.

Can this be done using a script or manually in GM?

    I think you just need to set which SHP attribute to use as the display label, then export to GPX. Do this on the Options dialog for the SHP layer, just select the attribute to use for the name.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
