I've converted the track files to routes using WinGDB3 and exported the file to the Zumo 660. Hopefully that's enough! We'll see!!! .

There are 5 or 6 of us here at least. I am way in the back, ride up the hill till u see the red jeep. All the campers are inviting us to coffee in the morning. Tis place rocks. I have no cell phone service, text msgs take an hour but for $10 for a week i have wireless internet service in my freaking tent. Too bad Ipads suck at smugmug upload.

Go back down towards the office, and you'll see his truck/trailer.

Me, I'm at home, 20 min away.

We plan a relaxed departure from here at about 10, stoping for lunch at the Pig Iron in Gananoque, then a nice run up the twisty roads to desert lake. Should be there early afternoon.

For breakfast, go to the Country Kitchen in Westport. 25 min ride. Left out of DLR, left at the stop sign onto Canoe Lake rd, right at the stop onto Westport road. Just as you get into town, it's on your left.

+1 beating my head on my zumo too!

Here is what I managed to do,

import tracks by

tools/ my data / import data / trip logs (select all the days and hit import)

then the tracks will show up in "where to? / custom routes" but still no way points

import waypoints (favorites)

tools/ import data / favorites (select them one by one and hit import at the end)

I think what this gives you is a pink little line to follow with way points that will become visible as you approach them, but there is no waypoint details, like distance, time to next etc?

Not sure how well this will work?

How did you convert using WinGDB3 what settings did you use? How will it work compared to what I have done?

All I did was launch WinGDB3, selected the file Ted sent via email, selected something like "Convert tracks to Routes" & hit "Convert". The converted tracks, now routes, we're then open in Mapsource, & I exported them into my Zumo 660.

I don't know how well these converted files will work. Been riding bikes on & off all my life, but I am a complete "Tech No" with this GPS stuff. So I can't compare what I've done here to your work-around.

Going to get in my truck early AM & head on up. Hopefully I've got enough GPS mojo to make this work!

Another easy( well, not hard but maybe a little bit too late considering we are almost thursday morning) solution could be making a map layer (non routable) , using gpx2img ($20, but 20 days trial)
You,ll then see the track as you see a regular road (you choose the color) on the top of your actual map.You won't use navigation, but will see if you,re still on the road and

Tuto: http://www.gpx2img.com/quickStart

That's what I did use on my 60CSX, to have tracks available without taking care of the limitations (20x 500points max)
Another good side is you cannot erase a track by mistake


note: not 100% sure, but I guess (on a Zumo) you only need to transfer the new map to the sd card and will then have the old maps (those in the zumo memory) and the one you added.
Otherwise, remember to select ALL the map you want before sending them

This is IT!

Morning dawns on the day we've all been waiting for...

Quiet yet, but the sun is shining.

See y'all tonight!

Almost there

Got to Shipwrek's place last night. Discovered the wheel bearings on the beer trailer were running on fumes. Off to source some replacements this morning. Always an ADVenture!
