On the net one can find many different ways often incorporating different external software. Since I do not want to add more and more sources of errors by using more and more external sofware, I would like to do it with R. Now I would like to incorporate as few functions and/or conversions as possible.

Hi all.
Free and open source tools to convert gpx:
http://www.gpsbabel.org
http://qgis.org/
Unsure whether gpsbabel can convert from shp to gpx, with qgis you can do it.
All the best.
