export gpx to 2012 Garmin g1000 in Cessna 208, in correct format

Is there any info to achieve this without messing up G1000 unit? Some say GPX and others say FPL (with dire warnings against getting it wrong)

All, I have done quite a lot of work looking at transferring between Skydemon and G1000.

In summary the feature doesn't work at the moment. I have identified the following issues with the SD export file

1) The filename must be .fpl (lowercase) The G1000 does not recognise .FPL (uppercase)

2) The <comment /> lines need to be edited to <comment></comment>

3) The <country-code /> needs to have a value e.g. <country-code >EG</country-code>

4) The <waypoint-country-code /> needs to have a value e.g. <waypoint-country-code >EG</waypoint-country-code>

I have manually edited a couple of files and they seem to work fine.

More than happy to send SD example files etc. Just drop me a line
