I got GPS data with using bessel1841 as coordinate system. When I download GPX data on GPS tool, it is automatically treated as WGS84.

Can I use another coordinate system when I download GPX on GPS tool.

It is impossible to convert data from WGS84 to Bessel1841 on QGIS as far as I know - but I asked here: Is it possible to convert data from WGS84 to Bessel1841?


GPX is always in WGS84:

"GPX schema version 1.1 - For more information on GPX and this schema, visit http://www.topografix.com/gpx.asp

GPX uses the following conventions: all coordinates are relative to the WGS84 datum. All measurements are in metric units."

[From http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1/gpx.xsd]

The aspect about importing into QGIS has been addressed in other questions, so I won't try to address that here.
