is that a downloaded from a gps file or one where you've entered all the waypoints yourself.
if it's downloaded then the track is probably being filtered i.e. stripped of extraneous points (probably user defined distance e.g. remove points to maintain an accuracy of say 5m) which will crunch the distance down quite a lot. mine are usually to within 10% but nowhere near that distance overall so the "error" would be greater.
my satmap will spit out a huge number of points e.g. 10,000 which tracklogs will filter down nicely to about 300 without changing the track to any great degree.
if you've added the waypoints yourself then that's a bit bewildering.
is there a point limit in mm that would just cut the end points off?
when i used to use mm i did notice that when you converted a route to a track it would very annoyingly throw points away it didn't like.
ah! thought of something else.
if the whole track appearing when you view the gpx file?
from some earlier conversion i recall that the gpx file would have some seemingly randon [endtrack] (or something like that) commands that would terminate the track although theer were many other lines following it. just delete the extraneous commands at the end of lines within the track info. you can edit a gpx file in notepad/wordpad.
p.s. sorry but i don't know what the real code would say in the gpx file
If you can look at how many points there are in the MMO and GPX tracks, that will give you a clue as to whether the GPX has been filtered. Since GPX is simply an XML file, you can read it with a text editor. You'll probably find the points are numbered, and you can read the number of the last point (if you have no other way of finding out how many points there are).
The fact that GPS Babel is unable to convert the MMO is one issue with proprietary, rather than 'open' file formats; there may be features in the file that are not documented, or known to outside parties (i.e. the author of GPS Babel).
BTW, why not download the GPX version of the route...?
