When I click on the trail waypoints that someone has posted on a site in gpx format my computer does not recognize the waypoints. Instead when I click on the map with the waypoints and choose to save the file and then click the downloaded file I get a message saying:"Windows cannot open this file. To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer." When I choose: "Use the web service to find the appropriate program" and then "Search the Web" on the following screen I get a long list of programs like "File extension.gpx details", "GPX File Extension-Open.GPX Files" etc. I guess one of these programs will enable my computer to recognize the waypoints. I don't know which program to select for download or what to do with whatever program I choose to download. My o/s is XP Home. Thanks for any replies.
