Waypoint Difference Checker v1.1
[Waypoint Difference Checker]

Find out what waypoints are different between two GPX files.

Do you periodically upload the waypoints from your GPS to your computer, only to forget what the difference is between different files? Do you back up your favourite waypoints, or swap around waypoint files, and want an easy way to see if there's anything important in an old file that isn't present in the current one?

This program allows the user to select two GPX waypoint files and then compares them based on waypoint name, looking for differences in lat/lon, description, symbol, and/or type. The program will report how many waypoints are in each file, how many are identical, how many are different, and how many appear in only one file or the other. Differences are displayed in the text window, and you can output the results as new GPX files as well.
