Default convert points kml/kmz to cup

Does anyone have a reliable way to convert google earth .kml or .kmz to seeyou .cup file format?

I've tried the GPSBable program but it keeps giving me an error "No Valid waypoints/routes/tracks translation specified". So apparently it does not read the .kml input file, but I can reopen it in google earth and it appears to be valid.

GPS visualizer seems to make a .gpx file format but SeeYou cannot open it.

Does anyone know what file specifications are needed for SeeYou gpx input?

Oddly I had this work last week but not this week.

The fact that SeeYou cannot import and export .kml waypoint and track files is a big lost opportunity.

I have just used this link:
http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/gpsbabe...w&zip_output=0

This does produce a .CUP file. In the example I used, the Altitudes seemed
odd, but that might be the input file. Remember to use a KML file and not
KMZ.

That worked, thanks. It sure would be easier if SeeYou had native support for additional formats like kml, kmz, sti and stx.

The Really Great Thing about Standards, is that there are so many to chose
from.

But have you asked Naviter to support these other formats? If you don't
ask, you wont get.

yes i have asked again just yesterday. Naviter has been asked these requests many times over several years and they have it is coming soon, which apparently is measured in decades.

If others would also put in requests for this it would help us all.

That seems entirely reasonable. On the Naviter page:
https://www.naviter.com/products/seeyou/ under "Managing Waypoints", it is
written:

Waypoints can be imported and exported to all file formats, known to us. If
there is an unsupported file format, please let us know, and we will
implement it as soon as possible.

Go for it.

My website at http://www.soaringdata.info will translate cup to stx and vice-versa. Go to the airports tab, upload your file, select the drop-down menu entyr for format translation only, and check the output file type.
