    So very last minute....like a day before departure, I decided to try a new TRX7 to navigate the continental divide trail, using GPSKevin's file. I'm apparently not tech savvy at all, and I can't seem to get it to either unzip correctly or something. I'm trying to unzip it with WinZip, and trying to open the gpx files with google earth, and I'm not making any progress. The only waypoints that open up are all the fuel stops in the area. Does anyone have the time to help a brother out? I should have left this morning, and this is the only thing holding me back. TIA!

    If you're still at home, pm me your email address and I'll attempt to open the zip file and send you the results if I'm successful. I've a few programs that handle compressed files.
    I'm home for another half hour....

    just unzip it on your computer, then transfer the gpx files to your unit and import them
