Uploading the above GPX files to your Garmin device is very simple and a great way to follow our suggested Huerzeler routes in Southern Peloponnese. Once you’ve uploaded your course, you’ll be able to follow it in the navigation menu.

What is GPX?

GPX files are essentially files that give your bike computer the GPS coordinates of your course. In themselves, they aren’t very useful – they are only a GPS map of your route. But when you upload them to a Garmin bike computer, you can then follow the course, and your device will show you which way to go.

Even if you get lost, the device will try to get you back on your course – or at least point you in the right direction.

  • a GPS-enabled Garmin device
