.loc File Extension

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

what is a .loc file?

These are files that are mainly used by location data applications and they are known as the format that includes waypoints. LOC files are the storage of saved locations and places of interest and they are mostly used by GPS mapping programs like DeLorme Topo. LOC files are also saved in the XML format and useful for interchanging GPS data between applications. The string resources identified by LOC files usually contain strings of various languages. Opening LOC files may require applications like the TopoGrafix EasyGPS, an application that allows users to quickly and easily upload and download waypoints, listing them on the left side of the screen so that a GPS data plot can be shown on the right. LOC files are saved in a different format than that of GPX files although they have similarities.

how to open a .loc file?

Launch a .loc 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 .loc 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 .loc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .loc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .loc file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .loc 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, .loc. 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.
