    Hi!
    I would like to use your plugin and maybe develop it further.
    Could you answer me for what reasons you prefer to use GPX-files and not database like mysql, mssql or other?

    Hi,

    using GPX-files has got the big advantage of combining this plugin with other geo-plugins, like the WordPress OpenStreetMap plugin.

    Hi Dmitri!

    Another reason is, that the GPX file format is generated by GPS-trackers nativly. So there is no need to change the format and import it to Mysql or any other database.

    If you want to do development on this code feel free to clone the project from https://github.com/wwerther/Wordpress-GPX-Plugin.
    I don't keep the SVN very much up to date, since I prefer git for versioning. I only put in new versions their.

    Best Regards
    Walter
