    Ok,
    Don’t get all over excited. Read this is first BEFORE you do anything else.
    Here is your full list of instructions
    1) Make sure you have NZOpenGPS maps installed on your GPS and the same set installed into BaseCamp.
    2) Ensure they are switched on and all other maps are switched off on your GPS and in BaseCamp.
    3) GPS Settings, Activity profile is Motorcycling, Routing preferences is "shortest distance". ALL!! Avoidance's are turned off. Off route recalculation MUST be turned off
    4) BaseCamp, all settings must match GPS settings (with the exception of off route calculation which doesn’t exist in BaseCamp)
    5) Go to edit, then options in BaseCamp, click on device transfer then untick all boxes.
    Followed all that so far? Good you can now install the Cape to Cape file into BaseCamp. Already done that? Bugger start again ;-)
    You should have the following parts, 1, 2, 2a, 3, 4, 5, Pureora Route and Pureora Track.
    Part 1 is 246 kms
    Part 2 is 64.2 kms
    Part 2a is 23.1 kms
    Part 3 is 221 kms
    Part 4 is 202 kms
    Part 5 is 216 kms
    Pureora route and track are 33.9 kms
    1006.2 kms in total (excluding wheel spins)
    If your distances are different from those above you have done something wrong! Re read the instructions.
    You can now transfer the routes into your GPS and go for a ride :D
    (Check the distances of the routes in your GPS and ensure that the routes have not changed during transfer, if they have re read the instructions and try again :lol3

    With a bit of giggery pockery I have generated a track version of the autorouted sections which works with my Android based GPS mapping application (New Zealand Maps by altlogis.com)

    And with that I should only get lost about 400x on the route, so more reliable than normal.

    Oarsum :clap It appears they have changed something in BaseCamp and it was altering the routes during transfer (thus the need to change the settings).
    I though about doing the whole thing as a track but for the Garmin machines it would of meant many many smaller sections.
    Good to hear its working with another system also Chris

    It doesnt work !!!!

    I Couldnt load the maps into my GPS, might be cause I dont have 1:rofl

    Got 1 for the car and another 1 for the boat, dont plan on buying a motorcycle version any time soon.

    Guess I will just have to follow someone who looks like they know where they are going. That could be a whole other problem in itself :wink:

    Downloaded everything into the GPS (eTrex 20), but noted that it was doing some re-routing on it's own - especially in the 1st section. To mitigate this, I've created tracks as well, so that this locks everthing down. :D Hopefully I'm set on that side of things.

    Not sure if the eTrex settings are similar to mine on a Dakota 20? I had at least one anomaly in the first section, however turning on "avoid u-turns" seemed to fix that and most of the routes now match within 200 meters those given above. Guess that means I should get my bike sorted and do the ride.

    Just loaded them I think.

    Distances are slightly more on gps than on basecamp, so more riding:clap.

    Will feck about a bit more, but as long as I know where the beer is each night, I am happy.

    How much more? One of the problems we encountered was with the GPS recalculating the routes when you transfered them from BaseCamp. Went through one machine turn by turn, couldnt fault the routes but all the distances were way out? Garmin? sheesh!!!

    Check all your settings are as per the instructions :deal Then try a recalculate on the routes loaded into the GPS. Getting lost in the Pureora is fun....................... but :eek1
