    Is there a published list of supported GPX tags?  I'd love to include color in my GPX files instead of having to go to my app and use the clunky color wheel.  Not being able to set color on the much easier to use web interface (nor do so by selecting defined numbers or entering hex codes) is a big flaw.

    The color is not currently able to be recognized on import, however, here is a list of tags that are fully supported:

    • time 
    • ele
    • wpt
    • rte
    • lat
    • lon
    • name
    • trkseg
    • rtept
    • trkpt
    • desc
  • 0

    I have tried several times to upload GPX files and I get the comment, "we were unable to read this file?"

    What is the solution to this?
