    My favorite place to ride. Here is a nice little 140 mile Rosman/Highlands/Cashiers route.

    This works great for track logs, but it will only show the waypoints in a route. I might have to right a routine to handle routes someday in mid winter with a bottle of dago red. :vardy

    Try this linky - save the file to your pc, go to the link, upload the .gpx file and it will display it on a google map.

    Looks cool, might have to check that one out during the next Georgia Mud Rally, assuming we make it there instead of crashing at Steverino's. :dunno

    Hot shit! I've got one that always recalc's right from the start of the BRP in VA to south of Blowing Rock. I'm going to clean that up to and put it up because it's always a PIA to force the damn thing to include the BRP on routes.

    Funny, I did that with a blank map. And GPX wasn't there. But when I opened one of my routes, it was an option.

    What am I missing here? When I DL the gpx and load it into Google Earth, I get a connected series of straight lines that do not always seem to correspend to any road. Are the actual roads not at the lines?

    Thanks for the help,

    OK, One banter or a tech questions per person without posting a route. Otherwise, Please take it to appropriate thread. Lets keep this one just Western NC, N Georgia, E Tennessee routes and tracks.

    opening in Google Earth thats all you'll get. Its not an autorouting GPS mapping program. Try Mapsource.

    OK sorry, I was actually just referring to your gpx file. The other I have dl plot fine in Google Earth and line up with roads. I was wondering about the difference.
