- QGIS: 3.20
- OS: All
- Updated August 2021
I have some point data I want to export to GPX and add to a Garmin GPS unit.
Add your point data to QGIS
To make life a little bit easier for my client I’m going to add a unique identifier to the data. Open Processing Tools and search for “Add Incremental Field” .
I’m going to add a new field called “name”
Once I run this tool I have a new layer called Incremented. I’m going to right click that layer and select Export -> Save features As.
I have a lot of fields I can put in the GPX file but the only one that is isn’t going to cause QGIS to complain is “name”. That field allows me to have a connection back to the original data AND gives a unique value for the person in the field.
