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

I want to extract and save an area around a given lat/lon of a gpx file and remove all the remaining points.

I tried

gpsbabel -i gpx -f favorites.gpx -x radius,distance=500K,lat=64.9830,lon=-18.1074 -o gpx -F output.gpx

When I use gpsbabel for that, gpsbabel rewrites the whole file, changing the format, inventing new tags etc. Is there any tool for just extracting, leaving the file untouched otherwise?

Hi, You can GPSPrune does a lot of gpx manipulation, it might be able to suit your requirement. I use it to cut unwanted sections from gpx tracks. It's here:- https://activityworkshop.net/software/gpsprune/index.html
