gpx viewers on win 8

no there's interest...still early but promising. I do not have a win 8 phone yet but I've been playing around a bit with various metro map apps on my win 8 pc. No field tests. The cool thing about Win 8 is it finally starts to blur the line between software running on a PC or phone ....

growing list of gpx track viewers in the map store

I uploaded a large 8k track point GPX file into Map Pro by jujuba and it worked.

On the PC side, I have all the required basecamp and mapsource application files copied to a portable SD card so that I can plug into any PC when on the road and fire up either app (see this post). Same concept may work on the phone if you copy over the required files. Screen size might be a challenge.
