Any tips on something that works quickly and simply?

I haven't personally bought one in years and the one that I have is no longer available.  A quick search for devices that produce GPX log files finds these two devices:

Holux RCV-3000
GlobalSat DG-500 Data Logger

Based on their descriptions, they both sound easy to use and are able to be connected via USB to download the GPX log files.  PM should handle these files just fine in the Import GPS Coordinates feature.

HTH,

Not sure if it is exactly simply, but I use my Garmin GPS running watch.  Set the activity for Hiking or Walking and once it syncs to the Garmin website, download the GPX file from there.  Also not as cheap as the devices listed, but it was something I already had.

Since most of us already use a smart phone of some type, take a look at this very inexpensive app.
