Waymarker Colours


Why does the Millennium Way use two different coloured waymarkers - Black and Green - to highlight the route?

GPS and GPX Files


What does GPS and GPX stand for?


GPS stands for "Global Positioning System" which is a navigation system operated by satellites orbiting the Earth.  It is widely used in-car as a "Satnav".

GPX is simply an international GPS format computer file, which can be used to show the route on a suitable device which contains a map - preferably a detailed Ordnance Survey style map.  GPX files can also be opened in Google Earth.
