So I just draw a track following the roads I intend to ride and load that onto the GPS unit. As long as I have that pink line to follow I'm fine!
Those are nice maps. Nice to have the trails/roads with a thicker line and less of the stuff that I dont need to see on my screen. Time to test them on my 478 with 512 data card.

Thank you for the tip to that site.
