Hi mtrax,
Is there a way to upload a GPX file to the app?
I can see I can access queries but can't see how to upload a GPX file.

Therefore, my next question is...

Not sure I understand. A GPX file is a bunch of records collected together based on some criteria. A MyQuery is the opposite. A criteria that when run creates a GPX file.

Where did you get the GPX file from?

I'm just trying to find out if there is a way to view a GPX file shared with me on a map in GCA or moreso on the GA Cacher app.

I don't know how IT stuff works.
The reason I raised the question about query + GPX file is that I noticed the GA Cacher app can access my queries and map them out, reminding me of the kind of function I'm looking for. I see from your response that it can't be done that way. So maybe the correct question is, can I upload a GPX file to view as a GMAP on GCA? It won't solve the app question but might save me blindly wandering around the site for ages looking for a way to do something that can't be done.

No. Any GPX file you can grab from anywhere on the system can be created by a MyQuery. If you find a GPX file on any page, you can recreate it in a MyQuery that you can then map.

I think I get what you are saying. I'll give it a go tomorrow when my laptop recharges. Might be easier than on the phone.

Thanks. :)
