Does anyone know if you can export waypoints from a program like mapsource or easyGPS to an excel file? (or vice versa)

You can send directly from an LOC or GPX file using GpsBabel (free) to a txt or CSV or XML file which Excel will import....

You can also do what Ztirnats said with GSAK.

You can actually just open the LOC file or GPX file in Excel - it will take you to the import screens.

I was trying to do a drag and drop from program to program earlier, but just opening the .loc file works great. Thanks
