If you wish, go to a web browser and login to your X-Traverse.com account. Click the My Waypoints & Data link and examine the list of data files stored on the page. The Filename and Created at column headers may be clicked to sort the list in ascending or descending order. The data exported from iNavX is listed with a date-stamp to remind you of when the export was done. You may wish to use the icons to the right of the files to edit the option file description, delete the file (if you are truly done with the data in an old file), and do other things.

A popular option is to click the Download icon (green arrow pointing down into a box). X-Traverse download icon  This function allows for saving a GPX or KMZ file to a computer hard drive. Or, even better, save a GPX file to a media card which may then be inserted into a chart plotter compatible with the GPX file format (i.e. most Raymarine, Lowrance, Simrad, Humminbird, and other plotters that have been software updated since about 2012 onwards).
