    Lets put tracklogs, routes, road here.

    It would be good to have restaurants, motels, towns, points of interest, gas stations, etc... waypoints as well.

    Post them here and I'll compile them into one GPX fro your Mexi riding pleasure.

    Break it up into several files, like one for waypoints, one for tracks, and one for routes..maybe. Simple select, right click, cut, open new mapsource, paste save as gpx...done seperate files. Or you could e-mail it to me and I'll do it and get it posted. Love to see that stuff.:freaky

    This looks like a really cool way down to Copper Canyon via what looks like trails most of the way from Agua Prieta. Thanks to BigDogAdventures for the most excellent Mexico .gpx. Is this that off road route you posted in Ride Reports a year or so ago. This looks like a must do for me.

    Routes and tracks from Texas to the Canyon courtesy of BigDogAdventures. The waypoint marked "Home" is in fact more of a bar and grill, motel, and strip club. Fell free to show up there anytime as they have free beer every day but Wednesday. Thats free lapdance day.:D









    Just kidding man, deleted that one.:freaky

    1.43mb limit mang. Doesn't even come close to it all. Still another one coming to complete the set. Just to keep it simple, I did copy all the waypoints to each of the 4 files, except BDA3. Had to trim a bit to fit it under the limit.

    Here is a backroad/trail route linking Del Rio to Presidio.


    Again, thanks to BigDogAdventures for all this really good stuff. Also notice all the Baja waypoints. BDA, Please d/l this and check it out to make sure I didn't leave your mistresses waypoint, route to the jail, etc... Please comment on how I broke it up too. I can always edit it.

    In other news, I have Topes files as well but might should wait for permission prior to posting. :D

    Actually much the same as BDA. Different tracks and a few different waypoints.

    Damn, that's 1 point a second. You can chop the file size down dramatically in Mapsource using the filter in track properties. In automatic mode it knocked the big one down from 9K to 2K and it still looked good.

    I will put a how to over in the root, but basically just do an open and select .gpx as the file type.

    Here it is - linky

    It says that "Mapsource now uses the GDP document what would you like to do?"

    Then the options are Import MPS file or open GDB file....

    ????

    Didn't know that. I'll chop down the whole file and see if I can get it down to 1.43mb...along with some additions:D
