Using Dropbox to sync GPX files between computers

GPX file sync using Dropbox

Do you find yourself needing to access your GPX files from multiple computers? If so, here’s a quick tip. Sign up for and install Dropbox (a cloud storage service offering 5GB of space for free) and put your GPX folder inside your Dropbox folder. To make access even easier, follow up by dragging the GPX folder to Favorites in Windows Explorer (or Finder on Macs). Your files are now readily available from any machine you set this up on.

And of course you can put any files in the Dropbox folder, not just waypoints, tracks and pocket queries.

Thanks to Peter C for the nudge.
