GPX Data products consist of track and service waypoint files in gpx (GPS Exchange Format) file format to be used on a GPS device, smartphone, or tablet. These products are suggested as a companion product to the printed Adventure Cycling Route maps and feature the same services listed on the physical maps. More information about GPX Data for Devices can be found here.

Section 9 of the TransAm Trail leaves flat Kansas and takes you into western Missouri's gently rolling terrain. The route gets hillier as you approach the Ozarks Mountain Range. The Ozarks themselves contain many steep grades. Cyclists have likened this part of the trail to one long, self-propelled roller-coaster ride. Humidity increases and the numerous streams and rivers you pass are inviting places for breaks. The route crosses the Mississippi River into Illinois. At Chester you can choose to ride the Mississippi River Levee Alternate or stay on the main route into Murphysboro, where the section ends.

More information about this route is available here.

I am very pleased with the gpx map files from ACA. I bought the all the Western Express and some of the TransAmerica maps. I am used these maps for planning and have creating an individual day ride for my trip from San Francisco to Kitty Hawk using Ride with GPS. I have created the maps but not used it, my trip starts in early May.
