Re: Google Maps to GPX
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
A long time ago I purchased ExpertGPS for some other stuff I was doing. I never really liked Basecamp (BC). The free map options was not pretty enough.
I too have found paths that did not work. One that sticks in my mind was a relatively local bridge that was out of service. I could not figure out why Google would not route over it until I did my trip. At the time there was no indication the bridge was out of service.
I used Google My Maps as well. It will export to an KML which I had to convert to GPX.

Thanks for the link and will try it but I normally use Basecamp for any mapping and routes, motor biking(motorcycling) or car.
With the controls that BC has a true time for the setup but doesn’t have the road closure at that time….
I’ll try anything once J….
I’m an active user of Google and used to use MyRoute APP when it Tyre to Travel and wondered why a route would not work (The road through the Alps was closed due to rock fall) making it a 120 km reroute !!! Google intelligence at the time but since they started charging up to the minute planning has gone from some routing websites.
So plan it on BC and then check on Google for road works and closure nearer the time.
My routes taken are then put into BC and it’s worrying the information available to you and others!!!!!!

It has been a while since I tried converting a Google Maps travel solution to GPX. I just tried it and had success. It has never been simpler!
Give it a shot!
