*What is a GPX file?
GPX, or GPS Exchange Format, is an XML schema designed as a common GPS data format for software applications.
It can be used to describe waypoints, tracks, and routes. The format is open and can be used without the need to pay license fees. Its tags store location, elevation, and time and can in this way be used to interchange data between GPS devices and software packages. Such computer programs allow users, for example, to view their tracks, project their tracks on satellite images or other maps, annotate maps, and tag photographs with the geolocation in the Exif metadata.

Basically this is just a shell containing Google Maps, a slightly easier way to open GPX files in Google Maps, plus spammy advertisements around the edges. The advertisements are designed to be misleading (e.g., they have a "open file" button in the image, which they want to trick you into clicking in order to do something probably malicious to your computer). For anyone trying to uninstall this, go to chrome://apps/ then find the app, right click, and click remove. I don't know whether this app actually is malware and whether removing it in this way will actually get rid of it entirely.

The app is fine. It saves using a stand alone software for viewing GPX files and it overlays on Google Maps so it's good. As said above, it doesn't load the file from Drive so you have to download to your HDD. I can see an elevation profile but it's plotted against time, I rather have it plotted against distance as it is a lot more useful. Thanks for developing.

adware, possible spyware, and i never found the application to view gpx files. the high rating should be a warning that this is a scam.

DO NOT USE!!!! One of our clients had called us stating they had tried installling some software to read particular files etc. I went onto his PC and the extension had infected the whole browser. Only option was to reset to default. READ REVIEWS BEFORE DOWNLOADING SOFTWARE!!!!!!

Spyware/adware. OpenDNS and SafeDNS don't like it, won't run unless you enable an ad-tracker javascript. No thanks!

This can't be removed from chrome, doesn't add itself to chrome and is full of adds and likely spyware too!

Looks nice but there's no detail view ie data point info. Would be nice to see this eg when clicking on a point.

Very pleased with a simple app that does what it says it will. The GPS trace is color coded for speed so that as a school bus driver (sub) I can use my phone to trace a route and know where the stops are.
