GPX file download

Post by trailblazers » 20 February 17 6:53 pm

newbie to GPS, how do you download GPX files?

When I try to open GPX files (using GARMIN ETREX 20) message says "Windows can't open this file"

After downloading the GPX file, plug the GPS in your computer, wait for it to show up in Windows Explorer and then go into the Garmin directory. Drop the GPX file there in the GPX directory. Unmount the GPS, wait for it to restart and the data should be then available there.
