About GPS Files
What are GPX/TCX/KML files?
- GPX Route (.gpx) This file provides the directions (navigation) to follow and not the complete route. Useful for the Garmin 205, 305 and 500 models.
- GPX Track (.gpx) Useful for GPS. Does not provide directions, only waypoint information. It will provide directions for the Edge 605 and 705 models, but without any personalized data.
- Garmin Training Center (.tcx) The best format for navigating with the Edge 500 . It will provide true navigation with directions for the Edge 800, including personalized data. Perfect for training.
- Google Earth (.kml) Format introduced by Google, mostly used for Google Earth.
