There is a little bug in the Maps module of LR classic 8.4. One of my gps gps tracks won't be displayed correctly as opposed to other programs like GARMIN BaseCamp or GMPMapEdit.

To help Adobe troubleshoot this, can you please upload the .gpx file to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here?  Also, insert here screenshots of what it looks like in LR and in Basecamp.

The zip file contains all data you asked for. The photographs located in the LR screen shot are geotagged using the track included by means of RoboGeo v6.3.2

You have TWO track segments in your GPX file.  Basecamp is reading both of them but Lightroom is only reading the first.  I manually edited the GPX file to remove the Segment identifiers and as you can see it now loads correctly in Lightroom.  The best thing to do is to go to Basecamp and JOIN the track segments and then reexport the track from Basecamp.

You could also use Basecamp to export EACH track as a GPX file and then load one into Lightroom and locate the photos and then load the next one into Lightroom and locate the photos.

Michael,
I loaded you GPX file in Basecamp and there was only ONE track.  Loading your GPX file into BBEdit text editor there is a line that has "trksegment" identifier that Basecamp ignores but Lightroom appears to stop at. I originally hand edited this identifier out and if fixed the issue.   After further investigation of this issue, all I had to do to correct the problem was to select the single track in Basecamp and reexport it.  Basecamp corrected the issue with the stray "trksegment" problem and the whole track loads into Lightroom.

All right, Robert. The track file I have send to you was the original one generated by my Garmin GPSMap66 device. Thanks to your hints I fixed it by editing the file in UltraEdit , i. e. by deleteing the end delimiter token of the first segment, and the start delimiter token of the second one.
Consider the problem solved, please.
