NEED TO IMPORT PDB FILES INTO DESKTOP STREET ATLAS

I have Delorme Street Atlas 2008 on my desktop and my Palm T5 Pda.  I have a multitude of waypoints and GPS logs on my T5 that I would like to import into my Street Atlas 2008 desktop maps.  BUT, whenever I add a waypoint, sync, and then look on the desktop map, its not there.

Also, the GPS files are sent to the desktop as PDB files.  How do you convert these into gpl files, which is what the desktop uses.  Most confusing software.  And the Delorme Support sends back these 1 line answers that are so vague to be unusable.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks!

OK, I figured out that there are two files in C:\DeLorme Docs\Mobile Maps\Wpts Transfer.  XMapHHWptsRcv.txt & XMapHHWptsSend.txt   Through trial and error, I discovered that I could use notepad to add coordinates to XMapHHWptsRcv.txt and then use the exchange wizard to import those into my desktop.  So how do I get the waypoints in my T5 converted from PDB to TXT?  I don't want to manually edited this text file.

I don't think you should have to use any third-part apps to do what you're asking here. Have you contacted Delorme support for assistance?

Unfortunately, Delorme support is pretty much useless.  They send me these 1 line answers like "use the Exchange Wizard to transfer logs."  And thats it.  That is obviously not the answer.  Very frustrating.
