I have saved waypoints from my Garmin as gpx and have successfully imported them into QGIS. Is there a way to now export the layers into a csv file with coordinates? I've tried the export to csv but that does not give me the coordinates.

Two methods are described in other answers here:

  1. Save as CSV and in OGR Creation Options/Layers type "GEOMETRY=AS_XY": Get list of coordinates for points in a layer?
  2. Create two calculated fields having the coordinates, then save as CSV: How do I calculate the latitude and longitude of points using QGIS?
