Bingo! That's the ticket. BTW, the page you sent me to includes a download
from "Gaylord McCurdy" who actually created the Garmin (and other format)
waypoint file. The Mr Gizmo site is a derivative of that, and it may be less
up-to-date. I did a Google search and found McCurdy's own site at:
I figured that the originator of the data is more likely to have the latest
version. I imported the data into my desktop software and it works nicely.
All the waypoints start with "BMW," so they are grouped. There is no
indication if it's a car shop, bike shop, or mix, though.
Many thanks, once again.
