No, a Garmin GPS-literate (actually Zumo literate) person could get it to work.
Zumoforums should be able to help you out.

My bro and I are leaving for the CD ride, south to north, in early July on a couple 1150 GS rides. I can't seem to figure it out!
Can someone give me step by step instructions on getting there, A to Z? I need the instructions in English, with a minimum of .bfd, .pdq, .ftw type of lingo.
I humbly await your responses...
Thanks

1. Go to my CDR file on GPSXchange.com Private Libraries
2. Open or download to PC and open file.
3. Plug in ZUMO, wait unitl it shows connection to PC on screen.
4. In Mapsource, click download tracks.
5. Unplug Zumo, it should then say something like "found new data" convert new data to "Routes" and you are ready to go.

There is a long thread about loading "Tracks" into Zumo as "Routes".

Zumo will work but 60/76 would be much better to just follow tracks.

It worked perfectly! Thanks for the assist. I inverted the coordinates in Mapsource and we'll make a run at it in early July.

Thanks Again.

Atlantic City Gas?

I'm doing last bits of planning for my summer trip. We'll be riding north to south. Mapsource shows fuel available at a Conoco in Atlantic City, WY. This would make the run across the basin Rawlings less stressful with a full tank. Anyone have any info to confirm this place actually exists? First ones through this year, can you check it out and post up the info?

Bruce, I don't remember (did it in July '07) but you might join this yahoo group and ask there if you don't get an answer here.

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/GreatDivideRide/

My old City Select v7 shows that Conoco, but BigDog's file lists Atl City as food and lodging only, no gas.

I think we stopped in Pinedale and then Rawlins, 2 KLR's, F650GS, and a DRZ with big tank. DRZ had extra fuel too, but I don't think he needed it on that stretch.

Thanks Mike, I'll post the same question over there, I'm on that list. I have a Clarke 4 gallon tank on my DRZ and will be carrying an extra couple liters in MSR bottles, just in case. Traveling alongside of a KLR "tanker" so that's an option for sharing fuel also.

My track between Pinedale and Rawlins is 225 miles. I can't see anywhere we could have gotten fuel on that stretch. I don't remember Terry having to tap into his Kolpin fuel packs (1.25 gal X 2) but he must have been close. I used to have a DRZ-S with a Clarke on it too, used it more for dirt riding than adv touring though.

I don't think they have built a Conoco station in Atlantic City, WY. Was there a couple of years ago-- it's almost a ghost town. Better carry fuel or ride a KLR (The real KC-KLR Tanker)!!
Will confirm this in Aug 2009- doing the CDR again.

I also have the Clarke tank and made it without using my Kolpin spare. I read about Wild Bill's gun shop in Atlantic City selling gas out of cans and that was going to be my back up. Their phone number is 307-332-5981.

Are you saying you filled up in Pinedale and made it to Rawlins on a DRZ 400 with a 4 gallon Clarke tank? That's what I need to do. Thanks for the phone number, that's huge if needed.

Yes. But if the expression YMMV ever applied it is here. If your bike isn't getting 50+ mpg consistently or you like to ride with the throttle WFO buy a spare gallon jug in Rawlins and pitch it at Pinedale.

edit- I see you've covered that with the MSR bottles

225/4 = 56.25 MPG, not a common mileage especially in the dirt.

What Pinedale to Rawlins looks like.
