Filebrowser is an internal built in file system where one can display all gpx, gpz, kml, kmz files in your device.

The default location to be displayed, is the one set as default in settings of file manager - you can find where that one is located in settings here. Under each folder user can see how many files supported by GPX Viewer it contains. In a case users have set up in settings external file browser, after tapping on “Open files” the respective application is opened.

Users are able to rename, share, copy, cut, delete or compress the files. It is important to note that all the changes will be also affected in the devices memory, however GPX Viewer Pro can not work with other file types than gpx, gpz, kml, kmz files. And also it does not work in the bakcground, therefore all the files need to be acitively deleted.
