This is a world first: Bike GPS provides now all informatons of your tour in just one file – RichTrack (.rtx). If you had to downlaod so far GPS Tracks (route recording), waypoints, elevation profiles and roadbooks seperately and each in seperate files and put an overall view together in mind, Richtrack makes it much more comfortable for you.

RichTrack is an exclusive produkt of Bike GPS. You recieve the RichTrack files (.rtx) now with every download of provided routes from our Bike GPS tour portal. These data containe the precicely adjusted GPS track, waypoints, all tour data, the elevation profile with terrain and the roadbook with arrow symbols and location- and direction details to every waypoint in text form.

The new interactive Bike GPS tour planner allowes you also to combine many routes out of sections with multiple varieties. The clou: all sections are reversible by mouse click. You decide the direction you want to ride the tour- not rideable parts get marked as hike-a-bike sections.



Your individuel combination is ready to download as a RichTrack file for 3,8ct/km (prepayment) or 4,5 ct/km (credit card) with the complete route data except for the roadbook- we are working on a program for that!
