E1 trail in a Google Maps file

Has someone created a google maps file from the available GPX files on this site? It's possible to import GPX files straight into Google Maps when you create your own map.

I started with it but soon I found out that it will be quite the task :)If no one has it I'll probably give it a shot.

I use Basecamp software from Garmin with the FriKart.no maps.
You can import the .gpx files and export them the google.

I'm planning to navigate with my mobile phone on the trail. The GPX files that are available are very good! But there are a lot of them. It is per stage and that is not ideal on a phone. Especially if you want to add it to a map in Google Maps. I've spend this sunday combining the GPX files per category/province. I've searched for a tool to do this, but couldn't find one that did what I want, so I've done it manually. I've attached them to this post and I've also added it to my site:

I've also converted them to KML files. For offline navigation I use the app maps.me. That app can't work with GPX files.

I have converted all files to resupply sections. So I begin with 00.00 and the first resupply village will be on 00.05. So I know how many days of food I need to take with me.
The next section will be:
sectionfrom/todistanceelevation/descending
01.01Hattir Ost - Duolbajarcopma34,2
01.02Duolbajarcopma - Bastingammen21,4484 - 484
01.03Bastingammen - Rukkujavri22,9488 - 402
01.04Rukkujavri - Bojobeaskihytta19328 - 312
01.05Bojobeaskihytta - Mollesjohka Fjellstue34,81592 - 1595
01.06Mollesjohka Fjellstue - Ragesluoppal18,31107 - 1111
01.07Ragesluoppal - Masi30,41506 - 1559
So that would be 7 days of food. And so on...

I'm also using the phone with gaiagps app. Al files and maps can I download so the phone stays in airplane mode.
As backup I have the Garmin Fenix and a DeLorme with me.
With the Garmin Basecamp software you can export each sections with POI to one single file. Than I uploaded it to gaiagps site. The app synced it back to my phone.

That sounds like a good idea! I haven't got all the resupply points in view yet. I would be very interested to see your resupply points :)
