GPX File Downloads
BG Gear GPX files are meant to accompany BluuGnome.com route descriptions and offer the convenience of easy transfer of entire routes (waypoints, tracks and routes) into mapping software or navigation devices reducing manual entry errors.
After purchase, follow the download link in the emailed receipt, or login to your account to download a ZIP file containing the GPX file(s). The ZIP file will need to be un-compressed to extract the GPX file before importing into mapping software or navigation devices.
Important Note: The BG Gear store servers do not allow download of the GPX file-type. The GPX files are compressed inside ZIP files (archiving file). Un-compressed the Zip file to extract the GPX file which can used in mapping software or navigation devices.
Notice: The Garmin Explore website for mapping has issues. Waypoints are stripped of comments and icons diminishing user experience by withholding information. Importing GPX files containing specific character-combinations in waypoint comments will NOT import.
For InReach users experiencing difficulties importing to the Garmin Explore website, follow this workaround: Import GPX file into Google Earth, save data as a KML file, then import KML file into the Explore website. Hopefully this enhances your experience!
