KDE SC 4.5 Beta 1 was released, among it a new Marble version with great new features. Please give it a try; we’re looking for testers and appreciate feedback via IRC (#marble), email or Bugzilla.The handbook is not yet updated, so here goes a quick tip for one of the features that may be a bit harder to spot: Exporting a route to .gpx is possible from the routing context menu. Click on any point of the route in the map with the right mouse button and select “Export route…” in the context menu.

If your navigation device (or whichever software you want to use) does not support the .gpx format directly, have a look at gpsbabel as a universal conversion tool.

    I can’t even test it (Fedora unstable repository) :( . It crashes on launch.

    That’s bad — got a backtrace to share?

    Ranked three stars by Dr Konqi. I hope it’s useful for you.

    Thanks, the backtrace is indeed useful. I created a bug report at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=239831 . Would be great if you could add yourself to CC to help resolving it.
