GPX download not working in new app

Post by ecarl65 » Fri Sep 04, 2020 6:03 am

Every time I try to download a GPX file with the new Android app it says the download failed. Interestingly enough this doesn't happen with the kml files. Is it just me? Any tips?

In some cases, it's because there's actually no GPX for the route.
e.g. Bells Traverse doesn't actually have GPX

Then if you try to "download GPX" from the app, it says "download failed".
That doesn't explain when KML works though.
I usually grab GPX from someone's trip report if the route has no GPX

You're right, there was a problem with the GPX generation program when accessed from the mobile apps. I just fixed the problem and you should be able to retrieve the GPX files.

Thanks for posting!
