      FYI - Raine has fixed this issue on GC.com. For those that are interested GC had updated their server to .Net 3.5 and it started to add the UTF Byte Order Mark (BOM) to the PQ files. Older software (GSAK 6.6.5, Cachemate etc) then choked on these extra three bytes.

      New PQs you download should now be OK - you may be also able to fix any PQs you already have by loading the GPX files into a text editor and saving them out again as plain text without the BOM.
