    Both of them opened fine for me using Mapsource.

    If there are too many tracks----you could delete ones you know you won't use----I deleted several that I knew I wouldn't use.

    Also---------mapsource will reduce the number of track points in a track to whatever you want using the track filter in the track properties dialogue.

    I actually made a route out of the whole thing------and don't even need the tracks---but I loaded them anyway.

    Is this the same map you took last weekend? Looks very different, and with only 11 views I'm thinking this has been updated to a pg version. Does anyone have an original they can share? Trying to head that way tomorrow with 3 bikes, any info is hugely appreciated.

    The file isn't a map at all $hane-----------it's a track log.

    This is the original file and it does not need updated.

    It is the route we used.

    I've been working with these kind of files for a very long time --------never heard "pg" version before.

    I'm guessing you don't have the proper software (and maybe gps) to open the file properly and use it.

    No we can view the routes that was my bad choice of terminology.

    The route doesn't look like your video route is our dilemma. It's more of a highway loops start to finish.

    The actual route we rode on the pre-ride went to places not on the official ride (the video).

    And......we rode things on the actual ride that we didn't on the pre-ride.

    What is the best file to download to a Garmin 376C? A GDB file or GPX file?:deal

    Thanks!

    IDK. Done it both with good results, on a Zuno and Oregon. I know a Zumo likes routes better than tracks. Some of those track files may be too big for a 376. You can convert from a track to a route and filter too a smaller file via BaceCamp, BTW.

    Either works RJ. The files upload the same. I don't think you will have issues with track points either.
