What is a GPX file?
A GPX file is a GPS data file saved in the GPS Exchange format, which is an open standard used by many GPS programs. It contains longitude and latitude location data that may include waypoints, routes, and tracks. GPX files are saved in XML format, which allows GPS data to be more easily imported and read by multiple programs and web services.
GPX files are used to exchange GPS location data, including maps, routes, and geocaching information, with others. Most commonly, fitness devices and applications, such as Garmin Connect devices, use GPX files to import and export running and biking routes. More sophisticated mapping applications, including the desktop versions of Google Earth Pro and the web version of Google Maps, also create and use GPX files.
GPX files store three types of data:
- Waypoint - Includes GPS coordinates of a point. It may also include other descriptive information.
- Route - Includes a list of track points, which are waypoints for turn or stage points, that lead to a destination.
- Track - Includes a list of points that describe a path.
Mapping and fitness applications combine these three sets of data into maps and routes that they show to users.
How do I open a GPX file?
The easiest way to open a GPX file and view the map data it contains is by uploading it to the web version of Google Maps. After you open and sign in to Google Maps in your web browser, you can add a GPX file as a new map by:
- Opening the Google Maps menu and selecting Your places.
- Selecting Maps → Create map.
- A new Google Maps window opens. In that window, select the button that appears underneath the Untitled layer.
- Upload your GPX file. The map data the file contains will appear in Google Maps.
You can also open a GPX file in a variety of desktop and mobile applications, including:
- Google Earth Pro (cross-platform)
- Garmin BaseCamp (Windows, Mac)
- Merkaartor (cross-platform)
- GPX Viewer (Android)
- GPX-Viewer (iOS)
How do I convert a GPX file to a KML or KMZ file?
In some instances, you may need to convert your GPX map file to a .KML or .KMZ map file. For example, if you are using the web version of Google Earth Pro, you must convert your GPX file to a KML or KMZ file before you can upload it to Google Earth.
The easiest way to convert a GPX file to a KML or KMZ file is to upload the GPX file to Google Maps (Web) and then export the resulting map as a KML / KMZ file. You can view instructions for uploading a GPX file to Google Maps above. To export a KML / KMZ file from Google Maps:
- Select the three-dots icon that appears to the right side of your map's title.
- From the menu that appears, select Export to KML/KMZ.
- Specify whether you want to export a complete map or just your GPX file.
- If you want to convert your GPX file to a KMZ file, skip this step. If you want to convert your GPX file to a KML file, select the Export as KML instead of KMZ. checkbox.
- Select .
Your new KML or KMZ file will then be saved to your Downloads folder.Open over 400 file formats with File Viewer Plus.
Programs that open GPX files
File Type 2Guitar Pro 6 Document
.GPX File Association 2
Guitar tablature file created by Guitar Pro 6, a music composition program for fretted instruments; saved in a proprietary format and contains musical scores and compositions for bass, guitar, banjo, and drums; can be played in the software, which uses the Guitar Pro engine to simulate the instruments.
The audio in GPX files can be exported to several different file formats, including .GP5 (Guitar Pro 5), .MIDI, and .WAV. The scores can be exported to .PNG, MusicXML, and .PDF formats.
NOTE: GPX files do not contain waveform audio data. Instead, they contain instruments and musical notes that can be simulated as music in the software.

Offline map (PRO only)
Offline map is available only in GPX Viewer PRO.
Offline map is a map which can be used when device is not connected to internet, however it also work when device is connected to internet. But you first need to download them to your device. GPX Viewer PRO currently support only offline map data which can be downloaded directly in GPX Viewer PRO, it does not support custom 3rd party offline map data as of yet. These offline map data are based on OpenStreetMap data. Basically when you download some offline map data, in reality you download raw vector, hillshade and contours data for this offline map. These data need to be styled in order to be shown on the map. GPX Viewer PRO supports several offline map styles as is shown in the screenshot below. Currently it does not contain style which is similar to default OpenStreetMap map style, but we are working on to add this style into GPX Viewer PRO.
Here you can find tutorial how to work with offline map in GPX Viewer PRO. If you encounter problems that downloaded data for offline map are not shown, please refer to this help page.
