While it’s great that one can import KML/KMZ files into your iOS app, this is fairly impractical given the prevalence of GPX files for waypoint, route and track files, and the awkwardness of having to use a 3rd party tool to convert file formats to then import into your app. I’d assume it would be a very simple feature to implement.January 2, 2019 at 11:11 am #17119

I also would like to have the ability to directly import gpx files into the android app. thxJuly 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm #20447
We are currently working on the ability to import GPX files in a release later this year (towards the end of the year). Please keep a look out!August 4, 2019 at 6:17 am #20786
This is great thanks! I’m really looking forward to this 🙂September 11, 2019 at 7:27 am #21387September 13, 2019 at 10:31 am #21934
Thank you for your request! I have added your information to our open request for this feature!December 26, 2019 at 8:20 pm #24226
Hopefully this is still in the works. All of my races use GPX to share race courses.

Isn’t it about time that GPX Imports are provided ? KML is a Thing of the past ! The import should also be made available in a user friednly manner, i.e. one or two clicks, then prompt for file – and that’s itJuly 22, 2020 at 1:00 pm #29042
It is ridiculous to ask for money for the gpx import, as this is already provided by so many map softwares !July 22, 2020 at 1:21 pm #29048
Thank you for your post, you are correct, we do support GPX import, however, you do need to be a Plus subscriber to import GPX. You are able to export to GPX for free though. KML is free to import and export.
If you don’t want to become a Plus subscriber to use GPX, I would suggest that you use KML. KML is widely used and is used by Google Earth.

This is really disappointing. Plus membership is quite expensive (AUD$42.99 per year) just for a single feature that is standard in just about every mapping program. Especially since I have bought hundreds of dollars of maps through the Avenza Maps app, thus locking me in to this all, and with the belief that the feature was to be added.
