How can I download a gpx track displayed on the map? I don't need the map, but just the gpx track.

Where are you seeing GPX tracks displayed on the map? Try to explain which GPX tracks you need and maybe we can tell you how to obtain them.

in fact, we have an older question about a similar topic: identifying-individual-gpx-tracks-from-the-downloaded-gpx-tracks-in-josm

Unfortunately, there is no way that I know of to download a particular GPS trace that is visible on the OSM map. If you happen to find a trace you want on the [GPS traces page][1], you can download it from there but there's no good way to search those traces for a particular area or keyword. Of course, you can download any of your own traces that you have previously uploaded to OSM.

Some other OSM guru may be able to add more help. I'll subscribe to this question and maybe learn something myself.

Cheers,

Dave

Thank you! My question was not so clear but you understood. I thoght there is no way, and you confirm that. Hope some skilled users can do this, may be using an app... and hope they explain how to...

if the particular GPS track was (note: that's just my interpretation) uploaded as "Identifiable" or "public", then the OSM API returns also an url with the set of points of this trace.

Most easy to use if you download the traces in JOSM (use a small area to preferably only get the trace you are interested in!), then look in the Choose Track Visibility (screnshot there) window in the "url" column. Open that URL and you get to the OSM homepage view of this trace where you can download it in its entirety.
