Tomtom Export Script

From Geoqo

This gives an example of exporting to a bunch of tomtom files based on type:

 # first, save what the user searched for
 %saveset tmp:fortomtoms

 # Then create a file per type:
 %foreach type Unknown Traditional Multi
   %search
   set:tmp:fortomtoms
   &&cache:subtype=%[type]
   %export
   system:cmd=gpsbabel -i geo -f %{file:loc} -o tomtom -F geocaches-%[type].ov2
 %endforeach

Then you should be able to run the script for a given search like:

 geoqo --nogui -s set:import:nearme -x FILENAME

And it'll put everything from the import:nearme set into .ov2 files for use on tomtoms. Don't forget to create .bmp files for the icons.

Hopefully this works ;-)

  1. geoqo script

%search cache:available==True

  1. first, save what the user searched for
%saveset tmp:fortomtoms
  1. Then create a file per type:

%foreach type Unknown Multi Webcam %search

  set:tmp:fortomtoms
   &&cache:subtype=%{type}

%export

  system:cmd=gpsbabel -i geo -f %{file:loc} -o tomtom -F %{type}.ov2

%endforeach

  1. just micro's

%search

set:tmp:fortomtoms
&&cache:subtype=Traditional
only:type=Geocache,subtype=Traditional Cache,groundspeak_container=Micro

%export

system:cmd=gpsbabel -i geo -f %{file:loc} -o tomtom -F micro.ov2
  1. all other traditionals

%search

set:tmp:fortomtoms
&&cache:subtype=Traditional
+drop:type=Geocache,subtype=Traditional Cache,groundspeak_container=Micro
