This a great!

Can you tell us how's its done? A link somewhere would work too.

Being cheap...I'm using OSM map of Missouri at the moment. Often as I'm laying out a route across the state, Mapsource routes me around in a big loop when a road is there. It appears to do this as a rural road crosses county lines.

thanx!

It's pretty tricky---and I'd be typing for a long time--and then we'd clutter up this thread with it. It would be very hard to go thru this on a post.

Give me a buzz and I'll be glad to tell you how.

That's OK, If you come across a link somewhere, that would be fine too.

The Bigdog is correct...

Upgraded to 2011.3 from 2008 and no wonder nothing was working right. Found out my 2720 only allows 50 waypoints per route so now I have 21 routes for Saturday and Sunday, as the crow flies of course!! Good thing I have friends who loaded the tracks.

In mapsource----you cannot create an auto-route (a route that sticks to the road) and share it with a person who doesn't have the same mapping product it was created with. It won't work. Oh--you can download and load it---but it won't work right.

Example----if I create an auto route with my garmin city navigator north america 2008----and give it to a person who has city navigator 2011---it won't work. Nor will it work with any mapsource mapping product that is not exactly the same.

So the bottom line---it's useless to do this as most people---maybe nobody can use it and it causes much confusion.

The best thing for people to do is create their own route using the tracks---and then load it into their gps.

And if you don't have the ability, skill, proper gps, proper software to create a route on your own--- It's best to forget about it and just follow the track---pretty easy to do that.

I've gotten really tricky with mapsource---I can create an auto route even if the road isn't in the software---really tricky.

Question Well I can't downloadthem

While I readily admit Im GPS dumb. Why can't I download this set of tracks to my computor when I have the Garmin programs installed and can up load to Topo from my 60CSx? Keeps telling me gpx files not supported even downloaded EasyGPS to fix the file errors, No go. What am I missing?

I had the same problem until I opened MapSource first, tried downloading the file. Then it worked.

Don't forget----you guys can e-mail me and I'll send the same file in a Garmin .gdb format. I did this for a lot of folks last year.

AdvRider won't let you post a .gdb file----never new why---it just won't do it.

Thumb Got it!!!

GOT IT! Dragging it from where I saved it to Mapsource worked like a charm. Its now living happily on my Garmin and my computor.
Thanks Charlie!!!

I've never followed the colored line before like this so I think I'll practice around here on some the short runs I have saved.

Thanks again to all who tried to help me!!!

Pissed Zumo question

Can anyone clue me in on how to convert the 2011 Swinging Bridges tracks to a route for this brand new Zumo I recently purchased? I would hate to think that it cant be done and that I wasted my money. This was the whole reason I purchased this thing was so I could load the Bridges ride and not have to depend on someone else. HELP!!!

Can't you just load it as a track? That's what I did, on my 550 and the wife's 450. But to answer your question I don't know, as I struggle just to load it as a track! But I'm sure some one out there can help.

Wentzville track

Is the Wentzville track a ride on your own deal, if so is anyone going Thursday or staying Monday to ride it? Is it a safe solo ride?
