Below, you will find a GPX route file content describing the track you have selected. GPX route files allow GPS satellite navigation systems (such as Garmin Edge 605) to guide you through your waypoints. To create a GPX route file, simply click the link below the text box (Save ".gpx" file). File names proposed by the system start with the distance (in km), followed by the difficulty (Europoints/100), followed by the name of the start location (e.g. "63-06_Albenga.gpx" means 63 km of distance, 600 Europoints, starting from Albenga).

Typically, GPX files are transferred from your computer to the navigation system using a USB cable (please consult the user's manual of your device, or visit the section on Garmin Edge 705).
