Until now I managed to import gpx files into Osmand by downloading the files from GoogleDrive into the Downloads folder on my Iphone.
From there I could open the gpx with Osmand.
Now I got theis message "Iimport Failed".
I tried several gpx files, new ones I created myself, or ones I downloaded from Wikiloc.
Also moving the gpx to the Osmand\GPX folder didn't work.

Am I the only one facing this problem? Searching the web didn't give a lot of results.

I discovered that bypassing GoogleDrive solved the issue. I tested by downloading a track from Wikiloc directly on my Iphone. Did the same with a GPX file I created myself in "Routefabriek.nl".
Brings me to the question: "Is GoogleDrive corrupting my GPX files"?

the issue might be related to GDrive only, did you try with a different cloud storage service, i.e. OneDrive, DropBox, Mega, etc?

At worst, you still can send the gpx files to yourself as email attachments and open them directly from your client.
