Convert KML, SHP, DXF, CSV, and dozens of other file formats to GPX, the GPS Exchange Format, with ExpertGPS. ExpertGPS is the best gpx conversion software for converting GPS data, GIS shapefiles, and CAD DXF drawings to and from GPX files. ExpertGPS uses GPX as its native format, and outputs 100% compatible GPX files that work with any GPS receiver from Garmin, Magellan, Lowrance or other GPS manufacturer. ExpertGPS was written by TopoGrafix, the maintainers of the GPX File Format Standard, so you know you're getting a proven GPX converter.
The best way to convert your data to GPX is to use the Import Command on the File menu in ExpertGPS. The ExpertGPS GPX converter will automatically convert your data into GPX format, which you can then save, send to your GPS, and distribute to others. One click is all it takes with this handy gpx converter. We've written specific instructions for converting ESRI shapefiles to GPX, and converting Google Earth KML/KMZ files to GPX. For other formats, the process is the same: Import, then Save.
Converting GPX files to other formats is just as easy. Open the GPX file using the Open command in ExpertGPS, and click Export on the File menu. You can choose from several dozen file formats to convert to, including KML, Mapsource MPS, CSV, Shapefile, and CAD/DXF.
