Description

Bookmarks currently use their own file format. I wonder if bookmarks (and even other files?) could use gpx waypoints insted, so the data was a bit more exchangable between applications.

The advantage of the current format is that it's easier to use (latlon2bookmark ... >> bookmarks.txt. What would be the benefits of gpx?

We have no real reason of swichting to gpx right now. Bookmarks format isn't obfuscated, works conveniently with the current tools and can easily be processed if you need to convert them. Conversion the other way is detailed here : http://wiki.navit-project.org/index.php/Other_maps
