Open GPX File

Files with the GPX extension provide a standard way to exchange and store information on embedded maps on GPS devices, GPS smartphones, and computers.

Thanks to the GPX format, there is compatibility in the software of a device, which can read GPS data created in other devices, even from different platforms.

The information contained in a GPX file is varied, and generally requires adequate software to read it, however an experienced technician can read a GPX file manually using simple text editing programs.

GPX files contain XML tags, which makes it easy to access critical information, even when you don't have software on hand.

These files are independent, so their format requires only one file that contains all the information required by the software to describe a complete set of map data.

To open and operate on a GPX file, you can use software that is available and compatible with any platform, such as:

Above mobile apps allow users to create and import GPX files.

Handheld GPS devices like Garmin and Magellan also use the GPX format to save map data and load it from other sources.
