TravelPlus for Repeaters was an electronic companion to the ARRL publication known as The ARRL Repeater Directory, which is still in production. The printed directory is still published, however, TravelPlus has been replaced by a third-party vendor and the printed version is no longer curated by the ARRL.
TravelPlus was installed on a PC as an application. The application allowed for exporting data. The data could be exported in the CSV or TPE formats. Many radio manufacturers support importing repeater data in these formats, even though the ARRL no longer produces the TravelPlus application.
Because so many radio manufacturers continue to support the TravelPlus export formats, Repeatearbook has also been built to allow exports in that format.
The CSV and TPE formats are both comma-separated formats. They just have different filetypes associated with them.

The TravelPlus exports do not notate in any way if the repeater supports a digital mode, such as DMR or D-Star.
The Kenwood MCP-2A software does not import split channels properly. It imports split channels as simplex channels.
