Morocco Overland (book) Website

Hi

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
I have a query about downloading the GPX files from the above website. I tried the 'contact us' option but it did not give an email address.

I have just bought the book and want to download the GPX files for the routes.

When I try to do this I just get a new web page with a list of the code. This will only save as an XML file.

I tried several - only ME5 brought up the expected 'save' dialog box to save as a GPX file, however this one seems to be corrupted and could not be opened by Touratech or Easy GPS

Help?

Cheers

Clive

PS Great book

Hello Clive

If I understand you correctly, try this..

Right click and save as, then right click on the file(s) when downloaded select Rename, then change the file extension .xml to .gpx
