Maps GPX

This tool accepts a link to pre-made Google Directions and converts them to a GPX file. This file can be uploaded and used in sat-nav and GPS units.

This tool is built by a GPS amateur, please treat the output with scrutiny.

Update May 2021: Big thanks to all of you that sent me reports for the 429 Too Many Requests Error. Thanks to all your generous donations, I was able to pay for a service that solves the problem.
