    Im unable to get this file to my zumo 665.
    I get an error msg that says the track cant have more than 250 points and each track has over 400 points. For some reason Im unable to open the file with Basecamp. Its doesnt show up as a choice when I click "open with". I usually creat my route with microsoft streets and trips and then use Easy GPS to send them to my zumo.

    Whats the difference between a "track" and a "route"?
    This is very confusing to me. Any help would be great, Thanks Bryan

    Convert the file in WinGDB3 or Basecamp and pare it down to 250 pts per track. Here it is converted but if you are going to load tracks or routes you need to learn how to insure that the track points will work with your unit.

    Also, I think Mark (Big Dog) laid this route out and he has Garmin City Navigator 2011. If your version is either before or after 2011 you should retrace the route on your version by opening the file and follow the route with the track tool *this one is 250 pts and save it. That way you will be insured that the track won't give you problems when using it.

    Here and there, but usually, leaving Illinois
    I gonna have to stay home this time it seems. Wet weather has put us behind harvesting, and my sons 18th birthday and finishing his Eagle Scout stuff is taking priority. Plus got a sick KLR that I have not been able to even look at yet since August..
    Bummer as I know this would be a good time.

    But Ive got the tracks, maybe catch it another day. :clap

    Have fun, post photos!!

    Thanks for your help Charlie. I got it on my zumo and it seems to be working fine. :clap This winter I will try to learn more about tracks vs routes. Most of what you said in your post sounds greek to me. Ive got some learning to do.

    Hey Gang, Could someone please PM me with the file attached as a .gpx file. Whenever I download it, it shows up as a .php file in lieu of a .gpx file. I'm just not smart enough to know how to convert it. If I can get a .gpx file of the track I am in. Thanks

    If you are using Internet Explorer try this:

    1. Open IE, click the settings cog on the upper right corner of the browser window
    2. Click "Compatibility View Settings"
    3. Place "www.advrider.com" in the "add this website" box
    4. Click "add".

    Should be working now and save as a .gpx

    My pleasure. I actually learned this from another inmate in another Layin down tracks thread. So, I can't take credit for the information, just for paying it forward.

    Now in Carterville, IL for long haul... or snow.
    Volunteer needed to lead this ride (either loop) on August 13, 2016. Look for my thread 2Hot4Golf. Could also do the other loop on Sunday while we picnik.
