    can I add a waypoint to mapmonkey? (.loc file)

    I just found this cool website ... www.geocaching.com ... if you want more info go read, it's awesome tho!

    anyway ... They give you the option to download the waypoints (long/lat coords, name, etc) in a .loc file. I don't mind if i have to convert this to another filetype, but my main question is ... is there anyway to open a waypoint file in map monkey?

    I'd hate to have to buy another GPS program ... if there's no way, will map monkey offer it in the future?

    Thanks!

    You can make yourself the necessary file with a simple text editor (notepad). The file is like this:
    TRAF1,Trafipax,19.04702,47.49015
    You have to save it to the .csv file (or .txt and rename to .csv), and use the Destinator3 Console to convert .csv file into the .dat file.
