    I've been asked frequently to explain the differences between routes and tracks as they pertain to GPX files and why sometimes the same set of waypoints will generate different routes on different routing engines.

    It's happened so often that I finally bit the bullet and put together and article on the subject that I thought might be of interest to some here.
