What is GPX file?

Files that comprise of the .GPX extension are primarily referred to as the GPS Exchange files. The information that the .GPX file consists of includes routes, tracks and waypoints. This data type is useful for the exchange of the GPS details between different users and programs. It happens to be an open standard file format that can be useful with all kinds of programs and applications. The very first .GPX file format was launched in the year 2002. Later in the year 2004, an upgraded version was introduced.

.GPX file format is mainly based on the XML formatting which enables it to be imported by various GPS devices and applications.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the GPX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the GPX file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the GPX file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the GPX file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the GPX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
