Track request - obdr route 3

Hello All,

Obviously I am quite new to the adventure scene (not motorcycles) and am looking for a little help. If this has been answered just point me in the right direction (couldn’t find it using search).

I am planning a pretty epic trip in a few months but I want to take a short practice run. I am going to do Route 3 of the OBDR (Crown Jewels) from HooDoo Ski area down to California. I just bought a Garmin 60CSx (and a DRZ amongst other things) and would like to upload a route that shows the trail and fuel waypoints. I DID purchase the hard copy map but I have heard that it is not quite spot on so I was hoping to upload someone’s RECENT trip that I could just follow. I would also have to stop and frequently pull out the map which I don’t want to deal with. I want to complete the ride in 2 nights / 2-1/2 days (one way) of riding (down to Ashland, OR). IF I had more time I would figure it out myself but I also want to learn how to use this “new to me” GPS.

I will be leaving on September 7th if this has any bearing on what roads/trails are useable. Thanks for the help!! If I ever learn how to make my own tracks on the GPS I will pay it forward!

Yes go to GPSExchange and in Jerry Counts' private library he has route 3. I followed it from South to North last year, on my way to the WBCDR and it was spot on. South of Bend near Wickiup lake the route follows some snow mobile trails that were marked closed due to fire season (I rode it last August)

Thank you but it says I need to upload a route before I can download. Unfortunatley I don't even know how to create a route.

You do not need to join or download anything to get a track from Jerrys library.
If you wish to join the xchange and up load a track from any other section of the site you will then need to do a download ofa track first

I am seriously missing something here. I go to Private Libraries and then to the BCDT Thread by Countdown. I can not for the life of me find a link or an attachment of what is supposedly included.

I spent 10 minutes on this page and totally FAILED: http://www.gpsxchange.com/phpBB2/vie...hp?p=3884#3884

In the bottom right corner of the page it says the following:

The link is to the correct file. On the right side click on down load.
Do you have mapsource?
Once again you do not need to upload anything to download from Jerrys files
He must be out riding or he would be all over this post.
If all else fails send me a PM with your email addy and I can send you my copy

Can't see the download link too

I had a look at the page and cannot see a download link too.
Stange that some can and others cannot by not signing in? I'm a member of GpsXchange and can see the links is if I sign in, but they're not there prior to signing in.

I saw the whole page even when I clicked on his link.
I guess the xchange recognized me as a member.

I'm thinking that you must've checked the box "Log me on automatically each visit:" when you originally signed in. When you click on the "obdr route 3" link, do you see in the upper right corner a log out option with your username beside it? If you do, then you're automatically logged in every time you visit the site.

Thank you for the help guys. I registered to the site and was able to download a file.

Can anyone point me to some good thread or tutorials on using the Garmin 60csx and Basecamp?

Pissed

Thanks for the info Jerry. The information was helpful.

I have a new problem. I am using basecamp with Jerry's track. When transferring to the gps unit it says "tracks truncated". Now, I have deleted all tracks, waypoints, etc... That do not pertain to route 3 in the gpx file and I still get the "tracks truncated" message. When I map the Rt 3 (this is the title of the track) on the gps it only shows it going from Ashland to about the crater lake area which is only about 1/3 of the trail. Can anyone help with this? I am supposed to be taking off Friday morning and it looks like I'll be using paper maps at the moment.

So here is what my computer shows:



I have since deleted everything on the bottom left except for the following:

Crescent (gas station)
GASPROSPEC (gas station)
TwinLakesResort
Rt3
Rt3 Opt a


You can see in the upper left the gray highlighted folder "Recently Imported from O BCDT Tracks Raw.gdb

I then take this folder and drag it onto the 60csx which is usually listed under the "My Garmin Devices" title when plugged in.

So what I am doing wrong?
