Android GPS app uses GPX file format

Does anyone have a good Android GPS app that uses GPX files?

I am a big fan of “inroute” for ios, pretty much everyone that is in the group I ride with also use it, however it is only available for ios. Many in the group have android phones and no-one seems to have found a good Android app that uses GPX files.

Ideally the app would be able to import or export GPX files. I know you can convert from one file format to another but that is a pain. Really looking for a good android app that uses GPX files.

I don't know much about such things, but I've been using a 2nd-hand Android phone (Kyocera Duraforce) as a dedicated m/c unit using the OsmAnd app for offline map/nav, and it apparently uses and/or supports importing GPX files. From the FAQ:

I have a GPX file, how do I get it into OsmAnd?
You can download and open it via File Browser or Dropbox and select OsmAnd as a target application
You can put it in OsmAnd home folder: osmand/tracks/(optional_sub-folder)/your_file.gpx

GPX Viewer: The pro version will give you turn by turn nav. Haven't paid for it yet but probably will for the weekend.
