Anonymous Timestamps + Elevation in gpx-File causes GPX Import Failure

Reported by: Michael Roesch Owned by: Tom Hughes

Component: website Version:
Keywords: gpx upload website import failure Cc:


I always used the anonymous-timestamp-function in the gpxedit-plugin in JOSM and uploaded many tracks without issues.

Now my GPS-Software started adding elevation-tags in the tracks like this:

<trkpt lat="29.00017" lon="-13.490498">




Uploading that track causes the following error:

failed to import. Here's the error:

Found no good GPX points in the input data. At least 75% of the trackpoints lacked a <time> tag.

which is of cause not correct! When I remove all lines with the Elevation-Tag, that it looks like this here:

<trkpt lat="29.00017" lon="-13.490498">



then the import works flawlessly.

sorry my failure- the problem was not the <ele>-Tags but the invalid date-format produced by the editgpx-Plugin in JOSM: substituting




does the trick!

So it is no OSM-related issue I must contact the author of the plugin!

After a bit of digging, I re-open this bug as the syntax YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.fffz for the gpx time tag is possible.

Of course, in the osm context milliseconds are irrelevant, but since it is supported by the gpx specs, some gpx generator might add millisecond and cause the gpx import to fail.

This was fixed some time ago.
