Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I regularly save my GPS tracks to the hard disk using MapSource. But MapSource always saves them as .gdb-files. The only .gpx-files I have are on the GPS device, but as far as I know they are usually overwritten. I saved the tracks from the last couple of months covering Iran and most of Pakistan and I'd like to upload them. Here are my questions:

  1. How do I convert my stored tracks (*.gdb) on my computer back to .gpx-files so I can upload them?
  2. Is there a way to upload the .gdb-files directly?

There is no way to upload GDB files directly. You can however open them in MapSource and then chose "Save As..." from the "File" menu, where you can then select the type to save the file as.

You can also use the open source utility GPSBabel (available for Windows, Linux, OS X) to convert from GDB to GPX.
