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

Hi, I'm looking for a tool that can export OSM notes to a gpx file so that I can load the notes on my Garmin GPS. I only found this, https://github.com/SomeoneElseOSM/Notes01 but I cant find a jar file to test it out. Are there any other tools that I can use?

You can find the jar files under Releases.

In case SomeoneElse is reading: Great tool, one suggestion, can you delete the "Moved from OSB ID683047..." because this is irrelevant info.

@ligfietser Thanks - I'll have a go at putting some kind of filtering in the next time that I'm in the code.

Notes can also be exported directly from the website by using an URL like this: http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/notes/256434.gpx

Or, to export whole bunch in a bounding box:


The files downloaded this way will have extra data in the description, though - you would have to filter it out manually, script it or use the already mentioned "Notes01" tool.
