    I am looking for an app that can edit gpx files, its a pain to do on my old Garmin but I can pop the microSD out of it and read them in multiple apps, I just want something to be able to rename and split/join.

    To rename files you can use any file manager app. But if you do it in your computer, you can also join files without any program. (Copy in Windows and cp in Linux will copy multiple files into one. I suppose you could do it in a terminal app on your phone if you want to root it.) Splitting takes an app or program, and there are dozens of them on the web for Windows. (I wrote at least two, but they're probably lost in the wayback machine.)

    I'm wanting to do it on Android not Windows , I have plenty of Unix apps that can do it on mt pc.
    I'm talking specifically about gpx files, they are a standard for gps logs and are similar to html or xml that you can edit with a simple text editor. An editor specifically for gpx files will let you rename the (one or more) tracks or routes inside the files, I'm not talking about the file name.
    For example my Garmin defaults to "Active Log 12345' so I could have a file name 12282013.gpx which has three track logs called ' Active Log 12345', 'Active Log 23456', and 'Active Log 34567'. A gpx editor will let you rename each of the three 'Active Log ####' to something more meaningful.
