i can add gpx files to motionx with drag and drop through iTunes. i currently have most of the fun treks trails loaded.
the bad elf unit functions even if you don't have 3g or wifi. the only thing you need to do is download the map tiles before you head out. depending on how many you grab and the resolution of the tiles, it can take awhile.
