Hello,

Great site.  Very well done.

I have a question about uploading several locations at once.  Your site is excellent when loading one location at a time.  When uploading multiple locations, your site instructs me to upload a GPX file.  How do I create a GPX file to be uploaded?  I currently have the addresses saved in an Excel file.  Would I need to provide the coordinates along with the addresses when making a GPX file or will your site convert the address to GPS coordinates like it does when entering one address at a time?

Thank you very much for your feedback. 

PS - If there's a solution to my question, I'll be excited to upgrade to the Premium version.

Thanks again.

- Steve

Steve,
Thanks for the post.
 
Currently, we only support uploading valid GPX formats that contain lat/lon coordinates and not addresses.  We are working on adding in support for uploading a CSV file that could contain lat/lon or address values, but that is not yet complete.
 
Here are two options that you can use to create a GPX file and then you can use our site to upload the GPX to create your tour locations:
 
1. Use Garmin MapSource to create waypoints at each location and then go to File - Save As and specify to save it as a GPX file.
2. Use GPS Visualizer to create a GPX file by giving it a list of addresses.  It will then geocode each address and create a GPX file for you to download.  See here:  http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/geocoder/ - http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/geocoder/
 
Hope that helps!
 
Let us know if you have any other questions.
 
Thanks!
Scott
