I am starting vdlp tomorrow and downloaded this but hundreds of numbers came up on my iPhone. Perhaps my meager technical skills limit me?
Sounds like you opened the file without a gps app. Try opening the file in a specific app such as motionx or even google maps

I opened google maps and see no indication there is a way to download a gps file into it? Could you be more specific please?

Ok, that file is a.gpx file, the standard gps format. It can be loaded into a handheld gps or an app such as motionx gps. Options:

1 Look and see if a .klm or. Kmz file exists. It will open in google maps. You can also convert it with http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert_input

2 Download motionx gps app. It will open that .gpx file nicely.

3 (BEST:) Download the app maps.me. Download the maps of your area so you have them offline. Get a .kmz file and load it into the app. You'll have the track and a detailed map everywhere, all the time

Thank you for this GPS file. I've loaded it onto OruxMaps and it looks great. I think this will help a lot. I got a map of Spain from OpenAndroMaps and loaded it onto OruxMaps and then opened the .gpx file and voilà, it looks great! Thank you!
