Yes, it will read and use multiple files in the waypoints file.

You could load each waypoint as an individual GPX file;

One thing, if you end up with several hundred different waypoint files it will read & use them but the system will slow down a lot wading through them.

You are better of having them all in a few files.

Look into using GSAK to save, sort and load to the 710 your GPX files.

I use Vantage Point to store maps and tracks, that's about all it's good for.

I forgot to mention that any GPX files on the card will be read and used also.
The limit for waypoints is 2,000.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Thanks for the help!  Is it possible to have multiple .gpx files in the 710 waypoint folder?  Will the 710 read all the waypoints in multiple .gpx files?

That's lower right on my last post, sorry.

 

Vantage Point has always been nearly useless for managing waypoints or managing any of your "outdoor adventures" as Magellan promotes VP.

 

I don't expect it to be improved in any way.

On the unit, tap 'Waypoints', then tap 'Menu' (lower left of four corner) scroll down to 'Delete All'.

 

With the unit connected to the computer, open 'Removable Disk' , open 'Waypoints' and delete the waypoints files.

Unfortunately, we have more than a year we ask the developers to make this possible.

Transfers all point in Vantage Point.
In any case, save all to the file GPX.
Sort out all the points and placed in folders.
Save the individual folders into separate files.
Remove from the program are those that you now do not need.
Disconnect GPS and remove all point.
Plug and transfer to GPS point that's just you have selected.

Any help would be appreciated.
