In order to better prepare your outings, for most VTOPO topo-guides, you have the possibility of downloading the GPS tracks of the routes.

Don't forget that the GPS Tracks are complementary to the content of the VTOPO guidebooks. We do not recommend that you only use the GPS Tracks without consulting the topo-guide in question. With the latter, you will have access to difficulty levels, recommendations, precautions and a detailed description, useful in the event of an orientation error. You will also be able to view variants and other possibilities.

Order GPS Tracks

On our online library, the option to add the full GPS Tracks pack at the same time is selected by default for each Topo-guide, this is the option we recommend.

In physical bookstores, you will find the logo "GPS tracks on vtopo.fr" as well as a QR code to scan with your smartphone for topo-guides with this option.

Thus, if you already have the VTOPO topo-guide, go to the GPS Tracks section or use the search engine to find your GPS Tracks pack.

Recovery of GPS Tracks Packs

The GPS Tracks Packs are downloadable products without limit in number of times, nor in time. No physical media will be shipped. Once your order has been validated, a link to download your GPS Tracks will be sent to you by e-mail. Check your junk/SPAM and "promotion" folder specially if you use Gmail.

Opening and content

The file you are about to download is an archive in ZIP format. Just unzip it to access the folder containing the GPS tracks in GPX format. One file per MTB route, containing both the track and the intermediate points (waypoints).

Compatibility and use

The GPX format is open, it allows the exchange of GPS coordinates. Thus, our GPS Tracks are readable by all GPS software and devices. So you can preview a route on a computer or tablet before using it in the field in a dedicated GPS device or smartphone. It is strongly recommended to have a GPS device with integrated cartography to view the track on a map background.
