Hey amigo

I had the same issue. I'm almost done converting the tracks to a nice set of Zumo friendly routes. Will post them this weekend when done. The tracks are priceless for figuring this whole thing out, but once that is done routes are way easier to follow than tracks or a pile of waypoints. My guess is that BigDog did the ride with a GPS that was, er, differently abled?

Cheers
Jason

Jason ... if I'm ever in Austin, I'm going to treat you to a night on the town. This conversion of BigDog's route to something that is Zumo-friendly has been driving me bonkers.

I'm sure once I can wrap my brain around however-this-program-works, I'll be fine. But I think I've become used to a different paradigm by Google Maps. It's simple, elegant and intuitive interface still gives access to an abundance of powerful tools. With MapSource, I'm still trying to comprehend how to differentiate and use via points vs. waypoints, routes vs. tracks, and a myriad other things.

In a prior lifetime, I'll bet the program designers worked for Lucas Electric and were responsible for the electrics and wiring in British sports cars.

And you know the joke about them:

Question: "Why do the British drink warm beer?"
Answer: "Because they have refrigeration by Lucas."

Anyway, I'm sure looking forward to those files. And many, many, many thanks!

+1 on the many many thanks for converting this all to something Zumo-friendly. I, too, have been trying to figure it all out, but in the words of a the 3 Stooges, "I'm tryin' to think and nuthin' happens!". In any case, seeing as we both live in ATX, you wanna ride the CDR in August? Let's at least get together for a ride so I can buy you a beer for your hard work!

Done, but I get an "Upload of file failed" when I try to attach it. It is a gpx file, and < 1M in size. Had to split it into sections to make it fit, but still no luck.

If someone can enlighten me on what I'm doing wrong I'll upload it. Otherwise shoot me a pm with your email and I'll send it that way.

cheers

And lastly, NM to the border. No guarantees, use at your own risk, blah, blah, blah. I really encourage anyone that is going on this ride to study the routes and carry paper maps to back up the gps in case it takes an electronic dump on you. Happy trails.

No problemo. I'll be riding with the Mrs. on the Ultra around Colorado the last week of July. I'll keep a look out for you when we are up around Steamboat Spgs. What will you be riding?

Did you ride it? Did you keep actual tracks?

If you have them I would compare to what I have from others. They are on GPSXchange.com

Thanks to those who posted Zumo-friendly .gpx files. Very helpful!! Two questions:

1) I'll be riding the CDR from south to north. What's the best way to "flip" the route on my gps?

2) Am I crazy to attempt this ride on my 1150GSA? Seems like the GSA might be too big but I don't want to ride my DRZ from Austin, TX to NM, then up the CDR and on to Seattle (then all the way back) as is my plan. Thoughts...?
