Say Hello: GPX Imports

It's been a busy couple of months here at the Beeline office and we have another feature to announce - GPX imports on iOS and Android!

If you're an Android user and have kept an eye on our community forum, you may well be an old-hand at importing GPX routes. If you haven't, we'll guide you through using this new feature. 

 

First things first...what on earth is a GPX file? 

If a file is called a GPX file it simply means that it is GPS data in a format that can be shared electronically. This is usually a GPS route that has been saved and shared online. You can download these GPX routes to your computer or phone and it will convert the file back into a GPS route. Magic!

 

So where do you find GPX files? 

There are loads of websites that you can use to download GPX files. As examples, you can download GPX files from Strava, National Trails, or ridewithGPS.com.

 

And how do you get GPX files on your Beeline? 

The process is slightly different depending on whether you are on Android or iOS. 

On iOS:

1. Find the GPX file of the route that you would like to ride

 

 

 

2. Save it directly to your phone (on Google Drive, Files or Dropbox app) or save it to your desktop and email it to yourself

 

3. Open the file on your phone

 

 

 

 

4. Tap the 'share' icon. Scroll through the options to 'import with Beeline'. Tap 'import with Beeline'

 

 

 

 

5. Your Beeline app will launch and import the GPX file. Tap save if you want to add it to your 'routes', or tap 'go' and ride!

 

 

On Android:

1-3: As above

4. Tap the email attachment or file. It should open immediately in the Beeline app. If it doesn't, you may need to look at your phone's settings

5. Your Beeline app will launch and import the GPX file. Tap save if you want to add it to your 'routes', or tap 'go' and ride!

 

So there you have it! GPX imports on Beeline. Where will your GPX routes take you? 

 

To get you started, we've turned a couple of our most popular blog rides into GPX routes. Check out the Putney Bridge to Windsor route, and the Bournemouth to Wareham route if you're looking for some inspiration to get started.
