 Importing a GPX Track into Kurviger is pretty simple. But before we start we should talk about GPX Tracks briefly. A GPX Track is a recording of a route, for this a tracking device stores the current position every X seconds. Tracks can be also generated artificially (like exporting it from Kurviger), but they don't contain route planning information, only a lot of GPS positions in order. Often these positions contain small errors due to inaccuracy during recording or different road data during the generation. Which makes it hard to create a plannable and changeable route out of it. Importing a GPX Track into Kurviger is pretty simple. But before we start we should talk about GPX Tracks briefly.

I used a GPX Track of a route through the Danube valley (Donautal) in Germany. +Goto to the [[https://kurviger.de/en|Kurviger website]].

 Since the GPX Track is only roughly 60 km, I will only import 7 waypoints. Roughly speaking I would go with about 10 waypoints per 100 km. As you can see in the picture the results already looks pretty good. Kurviger chooses to use the pass at Stetten am Kalten Markt (which I personally rate as one of the best passes of the Swabian Jura), instead of going through the Schmeie valley, which is a fantastic narrow road with beautiful views, but not as curvy as the pass at Stetten. Since the GPX Track is only roughly 60 km, I will only import 7 waypoints.
