Just download the "Adventure" and I think you can transfer it to your GPS.
That's a cool feature that Garmin has - thanks for sharing!

My old Streetpilot started working again after I got home. Hopefully it was just a fluke that it couldn't get satellite reception.

I don't know anything about Basecamp, but on that link, I found something interesting:

Send Your Story to Friends and Family

You can email your adventure, share it on Facebook® and Twitter®, or post it in your favorite forums. When you publish, you're also sharing your adventure with a community of fellow explorers who can see where you went and what you experienced along the way.

Discover New Adventures

Your adventures live in the cloud, so you can experience them online, on your GPS device, on your phone or in BaseCamp. You can also find inspiration for your next journey by searching BaseCamp for other adventures.



I don't know, but this looks like you are showing your tracks to the world. That is fine if that is your intention- not so fine if it isn't.

TTime, what program were you using to generate the above map of your route? Did you just do a screen capture of it or something?

FWIW - Been trying to memorize the trail names a bit. Looking at your route, I'm guessing:

Rogers Camp
Crooked Bridge
Military
Sidewinder
Julies
Elmers
Cedar Tree
Gummy WOrm
Black Water
University Firepower
Kthumb
Elliot Creek

Only if you Publish. If you don't hit Publish, it stays on your computer.

Good to know, thanks.

Maybe I'll give it a try.

I'm using Garmin Basecamp to show the track and just did a simple screen shot to include in my post above.

To answer MortimerSickle's question - still experimenting / learning about the publishing function. I guess if the route get's too crowded you can blame me. I'll try the limited sharing function next time.

I wanted to simply convert my track into a route, but the program was doing a bunch of auto routing to Hwy 6 and I couldn't figure out how to just create a route that matched the track.

That's the same program I use, but my maps dont' look anything like that. May be time to upgrade units. Is that the built in map or did you add that?

If you change your map set to one that doesn't support autorouting (or turn off the map completely) then it will create a point-to-point route.

The unit I'm using is the 62st which comes with the 100k Topo. When I connect to Basecamp, the Topo map is displayed.

Ok Luke -- I turned off the 100K Topo and the "Global Map" remains -- and this is what I get. Is this what you were expecting in a point-to-point route? I was hoping for a route that exactly followed the track.



I exported the track into a GPX file -- here --> https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...SF%20Route.GPX

Does this work for anyone?

Yes, that looks right. It won't follow the track unless you put as many route points down as there are track points, which defeats the purpose of making a route.

I haven't found a great solution for using a GPS in the woods. Saving up a bunch of tracks and then making routes from them is often good enough.

The State forest managers did just post a GPX file with tracks of all the different trails in the Browns/Jordan Creek/Diamond Mill areas.

Download the Class III file and rename the extension .gpx instead of .gpx.bin

At the risk of pushing this discussion too much off topic: I'm far from a GPS guru, but I don't see the need to create a 'route' from a 'track'. I just keep a bunch of tracks from previous rides in an area on my unit, which tracks I can just as easily see on there when I'm out in the area again. I don't need the navigation-by-route feature of the GPS when riding in the woods. Eh?

You think that you are no guru, I don't even know the difference.
