It tells me it's not a valid dile when I download/open.
My Mapsource won't open GPX files either? I just save them to a folder and load them into the GPS and they work...I'm a GPS beginner.

Well, I checked my Nav II out and it has V.8, so that's good, but being new to this, I guess I don't know how to download to my GPS.
It keeps telling me I need to be in "Host" mode, and can't find that setting anywhere. Also tells me it's found a device, but it's "not capable of this function"...
May have something to do with it being a BMW unit?

Hijack!!!

You should ask these questions about Mapsource on the general GPS section not West!

Do you have Mapsource 6.13 or later?

Jerry,

A big thank you for the cabin tracks. I may be running out of time this spring, what with the rising temperatures, but I'll put your tracks to good use. It will be fun to push, literally, the Big Bison up these trails. Next investigation is to search for you waypoints for the area between Mammoth and Bridgeport.

Dave

OLD Thread, but this is on topic enough to try and post here.
WHERE is the map of all the BLM Adopt-a-cabins? I can't find it or much other info. This GPS track will be a nice addition, but I'd like a map to look at too if it's on the net somewhere.
Thanks for any info!

You can overlay my tracks on any Maposurce map you want. I would use topo.

Are you talking about a paper BLM map?

If so there was one which was a project of a person who has retired from the BLM now teh BLM has withdrawn it.

Cool, thank you. I'll mess with it next time I'm at the home computer.

I was kinda hoping to find a paper or internet Map so I could have a back up to my GPS that I could print out. If I get your GPS file overlayed I can just mark up my Death Valley map with the locations of the cabins. That should work as a nice back up!
Thanks for putting that together!

They are not easy to find on any paper maps. For back up I would have backup GPS.

Two GPS' are required for any pre-tracked ride...especially Jerry's. You will be Oh-So-Lost! and probably Banned-for-Life. Two for you, you and buddy, or ??? etc. Fully downloaded with appropriate maps. Oh and maybe a SPOT so someone can, maybe, find you tomorrow. Jerry's tracks usually push the gas and/or time envelope so there is no following any paper map that I know of. Very cool tracks!

Jerry's tracks helped me plan our DV trip last weekend. With the detailed tracks, I was able to accurately determine the range needed to go from Stovepipe to Ballarat (via Wildrose), then our attempt up Pleasant Canyon. From there, it was Goler Wash to Furnace Creek. About 170 miles between gas stops. Without the accurate tracks, we would have played it more conservative. As it was, my 6-gal Acerbis tank still had over 2-gal once we returned to Stovepipe Wells (194 miles total).

Thanks Jerry!

By the way, don't think you can make a last stop in Lone Pine on the way in to stock up on beer. It's very expensive there ($10-$12 per six-pack). SNPA was actually cheaper in Stovepipe Wells.
