Basecamp has a pretty easy-to-use tool for breaking up tracks. And you can do it in Mapsource by just cutting and pasting from the track properties dialog box like you would do with any other text file.

I do this all the time with tracks I download from other guys.

You might do a rough calculation of how many 500 point tracks you would get by breaking up the whole thing. If it is more than your GPS unit can handle, you can break the full track up into >500 point segments and then filter down to 500.

I believe the result would still be plenty good for navigation.

HTCA - I went to their Web site and got the tracks and they are broken down by day. Maybe look again? Love to say hi if you get time through Durango area before or after the ride. I have one of your controllers and love it.

GOT IT... answered my own question after messing with it.... If you need them email me....

Garmin Base camp software
opened the raw file....it shows the separate tracks sections.


and I the created routes( using each tracks).

double click the tracks... the select "create a route" form the bottom of the open window...as shown...






see here .... highlighted the route... then select "file" "export" "export selection" as shown






Emailed the routes to myself to get the routes to my Iphone5 with the "pathaway" app software...

used the software to push to routes to my 60csX!



created 6 routes with the 2 go "arounds"....just like it shows up on there web site...

Yes great, but he was asking for 500 point Tracks not Routes.

yes sorry about that... I will delete edit post.... from what I can tell a route make it more efficient... (takes out the unnecessary intermediate points)

I like the separate sections... make it easy to manage since it is a multi-day trip.

If you read about long trips, a lot of people do use routes but they have huge risks of autorouting. Most experts advise always have tracks for your trip, they are idot proof. Most people with hand helds only use tracks.

That is exactly the kind of advice I need... because I have always only used a GPSs to tell "where I am" in the back country... referencing topo book maps. I will add the tracks also! Thanks for the advice I loaded up both...

I don't understand.
Yes very common knowledge, last generation units uses 500 point tracks.
Go to COBDR web site, download 500 point track file.
Download file to your 60 and you are done. There is no messing.

What do you mean by this? This is a point to point ride with no crossovers so just turn every track on and go. It will just look like one long track from end to end. No need to know where one ends and next starts.
