User friendly vgps file names please

+8 votes
60 views
Please implement user friendly vgps gpx file names - include the list name in the filenames (which is already in place in the containing zip)

If I have a number of vgps gpx files in my GPS it is very hard to work out which are which. Yes, I can rename the file, but the point of a computer is to make my life easier, not the other way around.

Thanks!

Yes i would recommend to get the list name in the filename, too. If you build and download more than one GPX, then you have to rename it instantly by yourself or if you forgot to, you have to look up, which ones they are.

Very annoying..
