Cannot open some .gpx files

Added by Anonymous over 2 years ago. Updated about 2 years ago.

Device model:
Huawei P20 Lite ANE-LX1
OS version:
Android 9
App name and version:
GPX Viewer 1.39.1


Could You explain me why I cannot open some .gpx files I downloaded on internet ?
Here is one attached that cannot be opened: GPX Viewer says "This is not a .gpx file"....
It happens to me a lot of times it makes the app unusable to me.

Thank You

Hello, thank you for contacting us. Gpx file you attached is correct. I have tried to open it in GPX Viewer and it was successfully opened and track with some waypoints was shown in GPX Viewer. If you have problems with opening gpx files, please ensure that GPX Viewer has permission to write to external storage. If it has and it is still not working, please try uninstalling GPX Viewer, restarting your device and installing it again.

Thank You for the reply.
I have checked: GPX Viewer is granted privileges to write on external storage.
I have unistalled GPX Viewer, rebooted the device, installed GPX Viewer again and still it cannot open the attached file.

Hello, thank you. Could I ask you to try recording a video of this process using this app: and send it over to me? Because I am not sure what could be causing this issue. Thank you.
