.gpi File Extension

Developer: Garmin
File type: Garmin Point of Interest File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .gpi. Files with the file extension .gpi can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .gpi files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .gpi file?

The .gpi file format was developed by Garmin, a company that creates hardware units called GPS Navigation. GPS Navigation is a widely used device commonly synched with mobile phones, and this device is used in locating directions and routes. The .gpi format is implemented into files that contain pieces of geographic information, such as the location of the user’s point of interest. For instance, if the user’s point of interest is a shopping mall, .gpi files will display information about the location of that shopping mall and the nearest routes to take to reach that shopping mall. This is why .gpi files are highly useful in GPS devices. The POIConverter software can be used to open and view the content of these files. This file format is also used in fax files by Bitware. Whether the fax file was sent or received, as long as they are created by the Bitware Fax program, these fax documents use the .gpi extension as its fax output file format.

how to open a .gpi file?

Launch a .gpi file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .gpi file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .gpi files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .gpi file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .gpi file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .gpi files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .gpi. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
