What is a GPX file?

A GPX file is a GPS data saved in the GPS Exchange format, an open standard that can be freely used by GPS programs. It contains location data, which includes waypoints, routes, and tracks. GPX files are saved in XML format that allows GPS data to be more easily imported and read by multiple programs and web services.
