Very good with some tweakings
By , for WP 4.5.2

Thanks for this great plugin. I advise to change the line
$dummy = ( defined('WP_SITEURL') ) ? WP_SITEURL : get_bloginfo('url');
to
$dummy = ( defined('WP_SITEURL') ) ? WP_SITEURL : get_bloginfo('wpurl');
if your wordpress installation folder is different from the site,
otherwise you will get an error when downloading the gpx file.

lightweight and working
By , for WP 4.5.2

I was looking for a lightweight plugin to show my gpx-files. This plugin just works and is really free (no light version of premium plugin).

Thank you!

Unfortunately not working with WP 4.4.1.

An excellent plugin
By , for WP 4.4.1

I use this plugin to make tracks available for viewing and downloading and this is about the easiest plugin I have found to do that.
I did encounter a small issue with the newest update in which it added insecure elements to my site, which is redirected to https. I had to use the plugin editor to edit the WP-GPX-Maps.js file and change all the Google Maps links from http: to https:. After doing so, everything was secure again.
Trying to force https via my web server or a third party plugin did not work.

Excellent Plugin

PERFECT
I found this plugin ideal for displaying gpx files on a cycling website, perfect! Thanks

I Love This Plugin (But)
By , for WP 4.3.1

What a great plugin. It's reliable, informative and aesthetically pleasing. The embedded maps allow for a variety of configurations that can then be customized visually to keep your site looking great.

Reasons for the Missing Fifth Star:

1) Support is severely limited ... meaning almost zero.
2) File size limitations (perhaps on the wordpress side instead of the plugin? I don't know because the support is severely limited ... meaning zero) cause larger .GPX files to "hang", followed by a timeout error.
3) Author doesn't want to reply to WordPress.org support area, instead pointing us to the now defunct "forum" where support is completely void.

I'd be willing to BUY this plugin if it would only fulfill the above concerns.

works beautifully straight out of the box

I set up this up in order to log a run using Endomondo. I downloaded the GPX file from there, and then uploaded it via the interface, got the short code, inserted it into the post and boom. 2 mins in total and it looks great on the page. This is the first review I have left on any plug in which says as much about my laziness (I WILL mend my ways) as it does about my enthusiasm for this excellent bit of work. A big thumbs up from me!

Superb!

I was looking exactly for a solution to have all my rides, all my walks all my activities easy on my (private) site! Easy?
Yep! Download them from my GPS and save them in my webspace - "link" them in a post, tag them - thats it!
Thanks that i spared so much time to have it programmed by my self!

Very usefull!

One warning for people in The Netherlands;
The plugin is using Google maps api and Highcharts.com api.
Both api's are setting cookies, so you need to set a cookie consent before the plugin can be activated on your website!
