Nav is sorted now with a new Garmin Dakota 20 with all the RAM mount stuff. It sits side by side with my Nuvi. Now all I need is the final tracks to load in it.

Since most GPS's have a 500 point limit on track files what are most people planning on doing?

In the past I've used a program on my Mac called MacGPX that has the ability to filter tracks to the 500 point limit without loosing too much fidelity.

Most street GPS's have that limit, yes. Most of us use a more trial-oriented unit for this ride. Garmin 60-series, eTrex, Montana, etc. They all have 10,000 point capacities.

I'm using a Garmin 60Cx.

I could have sworn that when trying to import something in the past it had to truncate it and I always got in the habit of filtering before importing. Maybe it was a 500 point limit in a route?

This is good to know! I'll have to try this again.

nah your correct, 60 series Garmin has a limit of 500 data points per track. You can have several track files on the unit (limit of 10, 000 total data points I think) but each individual track file can only have a max of 500.

We'll ensure each track file only has 499 or less Any more and the unit will truncate the file and you'll find parts of the line missing..

Three more weeks

That bike had the carb T-Mod done, thankfully!

Hmm, wonder if I should lend my bike to Skibum again next time.

Thanks Deadly! I was going to ask if you were going to filter which ensure that everyone would have the same tracks.

Can't wait!

Can those of us with Montanas/Dakotas/Oregons get the full track in one file? We can navigate 10,000 point tracks.
