When I am on holiday I'd like to be able to import a GPX file from my iPad to Good Run Guide.

I've been able to create the GPX file and save it as a local file on the iPad. But when I try to upload it in GRG, the serach box is greyed out and I can't search for that file.

Am I doing something wrong? Or is there a potential solution for it?

Hi Keith,

I'm afraid this is a limitation of the iPad/iPhone.  Apple disables all file browsing fields like this for some reason on the mobile version of Safari.  I understand that the following browser does support it though, so you could try downloading this to your iPad and using it instead of Safari for importing your GPX files:
