I was frustrated that 1.) Groundspeak hasn't updated it's PQ/GPX files to include Favorite points and 2.) that Groudspeak's API that GSAK uses is limited by a very short distance via search.

 

I found a macro that updates your gsak database with Favorite points.

 

Import your pocket query however you wish and run this macro.

I've been using a macro to do that for awhile now. It's probably the same one. You have to refresh the data to get the fav points to show up and if it's a big database, it takes awhile when you're cheap and have basic dsl service like me. :disappoint:

I think this macro was created to avoid having to use the "refresh cache data" option to get the fav points.  I had been using the refresh cache data method too, and this macro seems to speed up the process considerably.

 

(Thanks TFP!)

Thanks TFP and Team Trog. This macro is different and definitely faster.

Thanks for the info.  Will be quite useful.
