GPX files

GPX or "GPS eXchange Format" files contain track data generated by GPS devices. GPX files are usually recordings of walks, so may differ in details from route descriptions. Loss of satellite connection may also cause artifacts in the data. Some GPS devices record elevation (altitude), while others do not.
