Why do people not post more gps track files (.gpx)? Maybe there are websites for posting, but nobody ever talks about them. With gpsvisualizer, the files can be made into google maps and posted for others to see. Here is one I made for the Eagle Rock Loop trail in Arkansas. The gps track is not mine, but was posted online. Switch it over to the mytopo map in the dropdown menu for a more clear map.

Although I agree with your sentiment 100%, I would guess that it's because most here see a GPS as too big a weight penalty. I say hogwash.

GPS tracks are great, and I keep one for every trip I take, even if only to have a record for myself where I have been.
