GPX Viewer


GPX Viewer is a freeware viewer for GPX files, hence the name. It works on Windows Mobile PocketPC based device that supports the .NET Compact Framework 2.0.

A GPX file is an XML file that typically contains information about geocaches. These files can be obtains by premium members of and many programs, like EasyGPS and GSAK. It is the main source of information for all geocachers who practice paperless caching.

Future of GPX Viewer

I think there is no real future of GPX Viewer. The reason for this is that my old Windows Mobile phone died in the summer of 2010 and I now have an Android-based phone. So there is no personal need anymore to develop this application. And without an actual device it is impossible to really test changes to the software. The emulator just doesn't work for many things, like a moving GPS.

Furthermore, not that many people seem to be interested in Windows Mobile applications anymore. The number of visitors to my site are decreasing. And I don't get much feedback about the application, but maybe that is just because people are happy with GPX Viewer the way it is.

Cache attributes in your Pocket Query

Note that to enable the geocache attributes to be included in your Pocket Query, you need to update your Account Preferences and set the GPX Version to "GPX 1.0.1". A bit strange naming, it is not about the actual GPX version, but about the Groundspeak GPX extension.
