GPX files contain a very detailed recording of where you have been on your track, including any off-road locations. GPX files become tracks after import.
Using GPX files
There are several things you can do with your GPX file:
Note: While viewing your recording, you may notice that the recorded GPS locations do not always correspond with the roads. This can happen for several reasons.

Thirdly, the software with which you view the recording may have the maps misaligned.
