    Hey guys,

    I am using a Zumo 660 with Basecamp.

    I am able to successfully load a Google Map to Basecamp but the .gpx file cannot be exported to the Zumo because of all the points of no interest (PONIs).

    I downloaded the PONI Killer and converted the file. The new file is saved as a .gpx file.

    I receive an error message when I attempt to load the new .gpx file with PONIs removed to Basecamp.

    Does anyone have any suggestions to help me out?

    Thanks

    Import the KML file directly into BaseCamp then filter the Track(s) in BaseCamp. Your zumo660 can only handle Tracks with ≤650 points.

    HELP -> Tracks -> Editing Points in a Track
    Filtering Track Points
    You can filter the points in a track to remove unwanted points and simplify the track.

    NOTE: When you filter track points, the removed points are permanently deleted from the track.

    1.Double-click a track.
    2.If necessary, hold Shift on your keyboard, and click the starting point and ending point of the range to be filtered.
    3.From the Properties tab, select Filter.
    4.Select the points to filter:
    •To filter the entire track, select Entire Track.
    •To filter only the range of points you selected, select Selected Track Points.​
    5.Select the filtering method:
    •To set a minimum time between points, select Time, and enter a value.
    •To set a minimum distance between points, select Distance, and enter a value.
    •To have BaseCamp adjust the number of points automatically, select Automatic, and adjust the slider.
    •To set a maximum number of evenly spaced points, select Maximum Points, and enter a value.​
