    As the title says, I’m attempting to load the NEBDR tracks into my iPad for use w GAIA. When I fill out the download page on the BDR website and SUBMIT, I get pages with all the coding displayed, but it doesn’t seem to load into the iPad or present on the GAIA page as openable. I can do this on my Win10 computer, but I need it on the iPad.

    Has anyone crossed this bridge before and give me a hint as to what I’m doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    You can download it on your computer, load it up in the Gaia GPS website and it will sync over to your app. Or you can use any number of ways to get it to your iPad. Email, Dropbox, Google drive, etc etc

    Can you explain “load it up in the Gaia GPS website” ?
    Specifically, which website?
    Thanks!

    You can easily download any of the BDR Tracks as GPX files from the BDR website directly on your iPad and then open the file in GAIA without having to use the Webpage download/sync method. Learning this method is handy when you don't have an internet connection but you are given a GPX file and want to open it in GAIA.

    Follow the screenshots below:
    At the BDR webpage, select Tracks Download and the BDR(s) you want. Once you've filled out the Form you can download any of the BDR GPX files. After selecting the "Click to Download" link you'll see the following;

    Select the DOWNLOAD button...

    Safari will then download the file to your designated (Settings) location...for me the Downloads folder in my iCloud Drive.

    Then open the FILES App and go to where you download the file. Share the file with your GAIA App.

    Then in GAIA, select your Saved data and you're off and running...uh, riding, hiking, etc.
