What is holding up GPX file import?

I'm curious about what's holding up GPX file import in the app. It's definitely not iOS since a lot of other navigation apps such as Scenic, inRoute, or Harley-Davidson have implemented this feature. Is this just not a high priority?

    Hi @rocminc99al

    GPX import directly from the app is in our backlog, but we are currently working on other features with higher demand/priority. As a workaround, you can import the GPX files via MyDrive & then you can sync this imported route with your devices (ie iPhone).

    iPhone will open it as tracks, not stops. Tracks are useful for off-roading. I wonder how may TomTom users do off-roading using TomTom GO app.

    Unfortunately this only works on MyDrive on computer. IOS MyDrive does not have a GPX file import. So as far as I can see there is no way to import a GPX file using your iPhone only. Scenic 2, Calimoto and Beeline Moto apps can.

    @rocminc99al I've already posted about this in another thread that you created, see here

    @Levisp The screenshots above are indeed from the MyDrive route planner on the desktop. Again, this is just a workaround to get the route on the app using MyDrive which will not consider waypoints in the GPX file.
