Importing a GPX File

    Was really excited about the Beeline device, but now considering sending it back. Without better integration of GPX files and Strava routes it is useless to me unfortunately. The limitation of 22 waypoints makes the device obsolete for me.

    I have to agree, with this limitation the app is useless to me as well.  So sad, it's such a great app, works well and beautiful, but cannot use it with this limitation.

    @Beeline Can you please say if you're planning to increase the number of waypoints? If you're going to plan your own journey then it is impossible to do this with just 25 waypoints as the maximum...

    I got an email from one of the developers, Ismael, and he said:

    "I'm sorry to hear that the 22 waypoint limit is affecting your importing the route! 
    We're currently in final testing for a solution for this, and we hope to have something in place within the next week or so. I hope to get this working for you soon, so you can plan your routes on a computer! "

    So they are working on  the issue, stayed tuned.

    The sample pictures show the gpx file as being opened from email - this works. However the written instructions say to download it to the phone and open it there, then click the share button - not working on iOS 12.4.1. as of 22sept2019. The share link on iOS is in the top right of the screen when its opened as an email attachment. When you open the file as saved on the phone, it looks like the picture in the help article, on the bottom. However when you click the share icon when its on the bottom of the screen, the "share with beeline" is never an option. It only works when the share option is on the top of the screen after opening from email. Hope this helps fix a glitch.

    I can't figure out how to import a GPX file using iOS 13. This would be much easier if "Import GPX" during ride creation didn't ask for a URL.

    Yep... Following the Beeline instructions online to 'Share' the .gpx adn then 'Import with Beeline' doesn't work... There is neither a share option or an 'Import with beeline' option on my iPhone running the latest iOS...

     

    Any with any other tips..?

    I figured out a silly work around. Here's the full process: 

    1. Create a ride on Harley's ride planner side. maps.harley-davidson.com
    2. Save it and download the gpx
    3. Go to https://www.gpsvisualizer.com
    4. Upload the file and set the output to GPX
    5. That gives you a link. Copy it and get it onto your phone. I'm on all Apple devices so I can copy on a laptop and paste on my phone. 
    6. Start creating a ride in the Beeline app. "Where To"
    7. Tap the "..."  in the top right > Import GPX File > Paste the new URL for your GPX file. 

     

    It's just as easy as that. :/  In the meantime, I'm working with Beeline support.

    This is genius for one reason above all else... I didn't realise you could copy and paste across devices on Apple... Amazeballs... :-) 

    Ona serious note, this does work and assume you can use any route mapping app/website to create the .gpx file...

    Please do let us know if you get anywhere with Beeline as I too have an open ticket with them on this and a couple of other issues (distance countdown and missed features)

    Thx

    I heard back from Beeline today explaining how the sharing should work. Yesterday, I updated iOS to the latest version (13.2.3) after a minor point update came out.

    I tried sharing from a GPX file to Beeline and the option shows up now and I was able to share to Beeline!

    I have to say I have made sure my iPhone is running 13.2.3, I have tried to save a GPX to both dropbox and Google Drive, and I have emailed it to myself as well... 

    There is no import with Beeline icon appearing when I try to share...???

    I'll stick, for now, with your GPS visualiser website... Thx for sharing though
