Notes on GPS use:

The GPX-code is a common protocol to interchange GPS-data between different devices and computers.
The GPX-file can contain: Waypoints, Routes, Tracks.

A Waypoint is an interresting Point on a map.
Each Waypoint is located by a Latitude and a Longitude.
Each Waypoint can also more be specified by a Description, a Name, a Number, a Comment, a Date and Time, .....

A Route is a predefined path indicating how a trip must be made.
It gives the way to be followed on a map by means of successive Waypoints.
A Route can also contain a Name, a Description, a Comment, ... and the successive Waypoints to be followed.

A Track is generated by the GPS-Device itself (options to be configured by the GPS-settings).
A Track gives the passed way as Waypoints of a made Hike- or Biketrip.
The interval of the Waypoints can be configured as time related or distance related places.
Each Waypoint in the Track can contain the coordinates, the time, the height.... of the passed point.

The specification of WayPoint, Route and Track can be found here.
