    Default Buffered reader

    Hey, I need some help with some code part, my task in our project is to make a program that can read a LOC-file for a GPS, and this is my code so far, I've made a Jfilechooser so far that can take only LOC-files but I don't know how to create a buffered reader that can read the LOC-file and translate it in for the GPS, can anyone help me with this? this is my code so far ..

    import javax.swing.*;

    public class ReadGeo {

    private static String fileChooser(){

    JFileChooser jfc = new JFileChooser();
    jfc.setFileFilter(new javax.swing.filechooser.FileNameExtensionFilter("L OC files", "loc"));
    int resultat = jfc.showOpenDialog(null);
    if (resultat != JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION){
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "You didnt pick a file");
    String filnamn = jfc.getSelectedFile().getAbsolutePath();
    return filnamn;
    public static void main(String[] args){

    String jfgf = fileChooser();

    How does your loc file looks like. Please give us an example. Probably its an xml file/format then you could use an XML Parser(e.g. JDOM) instead of using BufferedReader an manually parsing the file. Generally, I would recommend to use the Scanner class instead of the BR for manually parse
    And what do you mean with translate? :confused:
