I was "playing" with this a little bit last night and can see the attributes in the GPX file now, but I'm wondering if anyone has any insights on how these attributes are (or are planned) to be leveraged within 3rd party products such as GSAK (or others).

I don't know if they do or not. I spent some time googling the differences a week or two ago when I saw gsak had the option to export in 1.0 or 1.1( giong from memory that might be wrong) I didn't find any reasonably understandable explanation of the differences.

There is a thread about this subject on the gc.com forums. There might also be some info on the GSAK forums too.

The good news is that the current production version of GSAK reads the new file format just fine. The better news is that the beta version (7.7) contains full attribute support. You can try the beta by going to http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=13999 and scrolling to the bottom to get the latest version.

Before you run out and download this, however, I need to warn you that the early days of a GSAK beta release are closer to an alpha, that is, you will see new builds issued 2, 3 or even 4 times over the course of a day. There have been 10 builds issued since the 1/7/10 initial release. Additionally, if you push the envelope, you probably will be treated to various crashes, BSODs, database corruption, and other rather major annoyances. Remember that this is a test/development version, not a production version. If you don't want this sort of hassle, just wait a month or so for the production version. (I used to participate in these beta tests, but my hassle tolerance has decreased recently.)

Before getting the latest version at the bottom of the thread, you will need to DL the Full Install at the top of the thread.
This version makes some huge changes behind the scenes. I have had very little problem with any GSAK update, but I would recommend backing up your existing GSAK directory just in case. Or, take DeeJay's advice and wait until it's out of beta.

Now I just need to hack a few macros to get attributes on my PN-40. Sweet!

I just noticed tonight that the latest GPX files that I downloaded had more than 5 logs in them. I didn't count but it appears to be in the 10-15 range. Noticed it with GSAK when making a printout I had more than 5 smileys.
