#2931: Problems with parsing GPX-Files
 Reporter:  laberlaib  |       Owner:              
     Type:  bug        |      Status:  new         
 Priority:  minor      |   Milestone:  2.11 Release
Component:  general    |     Version:  2.10        
 Keywords:             |       State:              

 when trying to parse some GPX-Files i found out about the following:

 If a GPX-file contains a waypoint with an empty <name>-node, the GPX-file
 will not be parsed porperly.

 I use the following code to create the layers and draw the files:

 var gpxLayer = new OpenLayers.Layer.GML("layername", "filename.gpx" , {
                         format: OpenLayers.Format.GPX,
                                 styleMap: new OpenLayers.StyleMap({
                                         strokeColor: "green", strokeWidth:
 "solid",strokeOpacity: 0.8
                                 projection: new

 I got about 40 routes i want to draw. All the tracks i couldn't draw ended

         <wpt lat="xx.xx" lon="yy.yy">

 After deleting these last lines in the file, everything worked out well.

 OS: WinXP;
 Browsers: FF 3.6.12 // IE 7;
 OL-Version: Link to hosted version

 I could not find any solution by searching the web.


 PS: it is the first time i use a ticket-based system to report a bug, i
