GPX lets you exchange data with other GPS users, who might not be using the same software as you.
Here are some of the benefits that GPX provides:
- GPX allows you to exchange data with a growing list of programs for Windows, MacOS, Linux, Palm, and PocketPC.
- GPX can be transformed into other file formats using a simple webpage or converter program.
- GPX is based on the XML standard, so many of the new programs you use (Microsoft Excel, for example) can read GPX files.
- GPX makes it easy for anyone on the web to develop new features which will instantly work with your favorite programs.
