The gpx creation process does currently the same output format as Groundspeak origin, that means

a) gpx-file
b) gpx-wpts.file

Both are combined into an ZIP archive, which some of the geocaching apps can work with. I'm using a app, where fitting gpx-files is possible, but in my case handling several gpx-files at same time does not work correctly.

Knowing this issue, I normally need to combine both created files into a common file, which I then transfer to my moblie phone. Thus I'd request that (optionally, e.g. time by time or in personal settings) it can be decided, how the output of the gpx-file creation looks like, i.e. archive with one combined file or standard each a gpx-file and a gpx-wpts file.

Since we are compliant with Geocaching.com, I assume those applications won't work with GPX files from Geocaching.com either. Then it sounds much more reasonable to fix those applications?

It is working with original gpx-files from Groundspeaks PQ-Service, but I ever on large files (with many caches) have the problem to switch between the cache file and the wpts file (this might be a memory problem of JavaME), thus I combine these two into one file and all is good while I'm on the road.

I think this option is not really difficult to implement, thus I decideded to request this comfort option here, because of the good support.
