    any details at all?
    were you unable to download them from the website?
    were you unable to open them in garmin mapsource or basecamp?
    were you unable to use either program to transfer them to your GPS?
    could you transfer them but they didn't appear on your GPS?

    Check out the mapping & navigation thread.

    I save the files then upload into Basecamp and drop and drag to Garmin devise.

    Im wanting to hit this later towards the end of 2017. I'm staring from Townsville (NQLD) I'm thinking about taking the highway to the start point as I dont know any other routes. Suggestions????

    Would this be suitable for a beginner adventurer, half capable rider, on a husaberg FE450? Ill be exiting somewhere around Port Macquarie as its my destination. I'm looking at Ram Mounts for my IPhone so I can use GPS.

    Any and ALL advice is appreciated from breakdowns to places to avoid ( keeping in mind I'm alone )

    Thanks Guys.
