Use the GPX format to exchange data with apps such as Garmin Basecamp, but Garmin doesn't support custom data fields. Use the boydsmaps format to backup all your data or transfer it to another device. It is saved in a tab-delimited text file that can be imported into spreadsheet and database apps.

GPX files are compatible with Garmin's devices and software. If a GPX file contains tracks or routes, they will be ignored and only the waypoints will be imported. Boydsmaps files use a proprietary format with custom data fields that Garmin doesn't support. They are stored in .txt files that can also be used to exchange data with spreadsheet and database apps.

Customize the titles and column widths for the first six data fields here. They are included when you export waypoints in boydsmaps format but will be ignored if you export in GPX format.
