    I’m new to PE so please bear with me

    I have been emailed a .gpx route created in Mapsource and am trying to open it on my iPad

    All I see on the map page however are the “elastic banded” via-points (and occasional waypoint) connected by straight blue lines but not the hoped for routing on roads

    Is this a limitation of Mapsource generated .gpx files or is it my big fat fingers?

    Could you email us an example GPX file to info @ geomagik.com so we can investigate?

    Please note that GPX format is designed to store GPS Tracks and not routes with driving instructions. This is a limitation of the format itself.

    Thanks for the email! This GPX file contained custom GPX Extensions created by Garmin which PocketEarth does not support. Good news is that we have now added support for this and it will be available in our next update!
