The book’s .gpx files are only selected, key waypoints, not a tracklog (continuous line). If you want a tracklog, download a GPS map. Most are free and just about all the routes in Morocco 3 (below) are on there.
Some routes have been completely realigned, and some [R] road routes don’t need .gpx files. All gpx routes are now ready to download as a zip folder here.
If your files come in as a ‘route.gpx.txt‘ or ‘route.gpx.xml‘, delete the .txt or .xml suffix and it’ll become a regular .gpx which your GPS software will recognise. If you feel the waypoint data is inadequate, it’s easy to add extra ones by opening the .gpx file with a plain text editor and paste them in. The files use three Garmin icons as shown left, but not all units or software may display them like that.
Each .gpx waypoint is identified as follows: …/MH18KM132. The first 2 letters correspond to the five M- regions, figures correspond to the route number in that region and the remaining figures relate to a kilometre reading on that route, corresponding to a description in the book. The example above being Kilometre 132 of MH18 which corresponds with the book description on the left. Nearly all routes start and end at a fuel station which usually means a town with accommodation and other services.
