Computer software for logging coordinates

Post by MHsnowy » Thu Aug 23, 2012 7:52 pm

Can anyone recommend a computer program that allows you to enter coordinates for waypoints.

A mate has a road book and I want to plot the route particularly the off road sections on the PC then save them as a GPX file to upload to the satnav.

Cheers

Have a search for OMN from Anquet. It is not free but will work on phone as well. I bought whole of UK 1:50000 scale for £85 but I believe they have an offeron now and it is cheaper.

Perhaps I should have said that the road book is for the Pyrenees.

Tried all the above and can't seem to get any of them to accept the coordinates in the format they are written in.
This is an example.
42deg 52,006' N
0deg 44,890' E

Any ideas?
