.wpo File Extension

Developer: HOLUX Technology/Technopress
File type: HOLUX Waypoint File/Technopress Waypoint 2D File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .wpo. Files with the file extension .wpo can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .wpo files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .wpo file?

Files with the .wpo extension are known as HOLUX Waypoint File because they are created with the use of the program called HOLUX GPS devices. These files mainly contain name, latitude, date, longitude, etc. referred to as waypoint data. These files help users create navigation routes and point of interest storage wherein the data stored sung the .wpo file extension always have a 1/10 resolution. .wpo files are also used as Technopress Waypoint 2D files. This program is used to manage GPS points, so files containing the extension usually contain an XMLcode that either contains information such as files and authors or dates and maps, etc. These files allow users to calculate lengths and routes using the program. Several applications, such as GPSBabel, GPSMapEdit, Technopress Waypoint 2D, and WeavePoint can be used to open these files. A .wpo file converter can also be used to open these files even without the mentioned applications installed.

how to open a .wpo file?

Launch a .wpo 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 .wpo file will open it.

a word of warning

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