    Some web browsers add “.gpx.xml” to the end of the GPX download, but this should be corrected by removing the “.xml” part.

    I have sent you an email with a couple follow questions, please check your inbox.

    when i download these in safari it's an xml file and changing removing the extension does not help. i have to use chrome which I would prefer not too.  Is there an option to have these automatically uploaded to google drive, drop box, iCloud, etc like in geotag photos? thanks,

    I just tried downloading via Safari and got the .xml extension as well (actually it was .gpx.xml). I changed the filename by removing the .xml extension and forcing the save to .gpx. Uploaded it back into Gaia via the Safari browser on my desktop and it worked. I will add that I tried it on a file that only had a .xml extension (not .gpx.xml) and uploading the file returned an error that no tracks were found. Hope this helps.

    Thanks. When i removed the xml it did not work either. It seemed to be fine from Chrome I just figured someone would want to know. Any idea of auto uploads to icloud, google drive, etc?

    Can you click “Submit a Request” above and include the link to the GPX file you are downloading and having the .xml extension added on?

    You can set Gaia GPS to back up all your data to gaiagps.com by toggling on the sync option within the Settings menu (iOS/Android).
