What is included in my purchase?

When you purchase a GPS waypoint set you get three files:

  1. A KML file to view the waypoints using Google Earth.
  2. A GPX file to upload the waypoints into your handheld GPS.
  3. A PDF document containing a key and description of each GPX waypoint.

All three files are bundeled in one ZIP file that is immediately downloaded when you make your purchase. Click on the icons for more information.
