Honda Tripplanner GPX

Postby stan0614 » Mon Mar 07, 2016 9:50 pm



I’m getting pretty good at planning a trip on the http://tripplanner.honda.com and importing into the NAV system on the Gl1800.
So now I am planning a dice run that will leave the starting point at various times and I want to share the GPX file with other potential ride captains.
I email out the .gpx file that I imported into the NAV on the bike.

They say they cannot read the file. Granted they are harley riders but I do not know why they cannot read what I sent them.
I have two questions -

What application is the best to import a GPX file on a Windows and Mac that shows the route?

I can import the GPX file into Google earth or Google map but it does not show the route, just the WAYPOINTS I put into the trip planner GPX file. Other than honda trip planner how do you view the MAP ( not the straight-line waypoints ) ?

I'm pretty sure you can also view it in Garmin Basecamp, but why not just have these people view it on Honda's tripplanner or is it possible that the Harley guys can't spell Honda. :lol:

Yup, Garmin Base Camp will import it and install it on a Garmin GPS.

Make it easier for them to access by using the tool at http://veloroutes.org/upload/ Input the .gpx file, upload, save and grab the URL containing the Google Map with the route highlighted. Here's a sample of the output based on a GPX file I had from sometime ago: http://veloroutes.org/bikemaps/?route=137926#

Hope this helps!
