Cetus for Palm/OS (cetus)

This format can...

  • read and write waypoints

  • read tracks

This format has the following options: dbname, appendicon .

Cetus GPS is a program for Palm/OS. Working with Ron Parker and Kjeld Jensen, we can now read and write files for that program.

dbname option

Database name.

This option specifies the database name for the output file. This name is not the same thing as the file name on your computer; this is the name that appears in the file browser on your handheld.

appendicon option

Append icon_descr to description.

This option will add the icon description to the end of the waypoint description on output. This can be useful if the icon is used to convey important information about the waypoint. For example, the icon might be "found geocache" or "unfound geocache"; it might be useful to know that when looking at a list of icons in Cetus.
