Support of desc and cmt of gpx files

I am using Garmin Explore for a couple of month and I want to migrate my data using gpx import.

Unfortunately, Garmin Explore seems to ignore some of the default gpx standards such as <cmt> (comment) or <desc> (description).


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<gpx xmlns="" creator="" version="1.1" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">
  <wpt lat="37.754007" lon="-122.447175">
    <name>this is the name of the waypoint</name>
    <cmt>this is the comment</cmt>
    <desc>this is some further description</desc>

Furthermore: if I save some comments to a waypoint inside of Garmin Explore and do an export, the comments are not exported.

I. e.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<gpx creator="Garmin Explore App" version="1.1" xmlns:adv="" xmlns:gpxtpx="" xmlns:gpxtrx="" xmlns:gpxx="" xmlns:trp="" xmlns:wptx1="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns="" xsi:schemaLocation="">
		<link href="">
			<text>Garmin International</text>
	<wpt lat="50.190564" lon="7.465851">

As you can see in the second code snippet, the gpx file even supports the schema which includes desc and cmt elements.

My question/suggestion is: if I can save comments to my waypoints in Garmin Explore already, why not using the standards? 

Use case why I use comments and description at all: comments and descriptions are kind of a log book for me where I store experiences I made on a trail/at a waypoint.
