Is there an app for that?Is that a rhetorical question
I've actually realized now what I really want is not the waypoint data but instead track data which is made available here:Good choice. Tracks are the way to go.
I downloaded waypoints for the route from topofusion.com but have not put them on the unit yet.What is the download link? Where did you find the route on that web site?
How do I install waypoints so I can then follow the route?I am not aware of a track for the GDMBR that follows the route exactly. There is a compilation of route points in a very low resolution. They will give you general guidance about the route, but not exact directions.
Also, does it matter which direction I ride in?Yes. You must reverse the route, as needed, using BaseCamp or other tools.
All looks well except when I place my Waypoints on my Garmin SD card it does not recognize it in the device.This is surprising. Do you have the GPX file on the SD card under /garmin/gpx folder? It should work. Otherwise, send me a copy of the file.
I got mine. You should get yours. I have 5 garmin devices and this one is by far the best for touring. The battery is an issue, but my hub dynamo remedies that.Are any of your other devices in the Edge series? Why do you think the Touring is "by far the best for touring"?
In terms of the issue with J07740_48 is this the U-Turn that you were describing? It's West towards Ead's Municipal Airport. My map doesn't show the airport but I believe I identified it as Map 78 on TA section 7.My reference to the U-turn example was at the end of Route J08870_46.
But can you help me with assuring this is the correct routes' following and connecting to the next.The only assurance I can give you is to make sure you have the paper maps with you. Regularly, validate your location on the GPS versus the paper maps.
When you export the waypoints, there should not be any <rte> tags in the file. If you are seeing them, then something is going wrong in the export process.
- When I'm done editing what I need from them should I export and take the <rte> <rte/> out in the files?
That is up to you. This is only for organization purpose in BaseCamp. This way you can decide to use all or part of them.
- Should I contain them in one folder or as named (Campgrounds, Restaurants, Bike Shops, etc)?
From there, I would like to get to New Haven Connecticut to take the Farmington Canal Trail to Northampton. Does anyone know this trail? It seems like a pretty direct route, though it doesn't sound like it is all paved and that could be problematic.Yes, this is all paved. This includes both the sections from New Haven to Cheshire and the one from Farmington to Westfield. There may be a few short sections of the Farmington Canal Trail on hard packed dirt that I am forgetting. I only remember that the entire route was very pleasant (made a short video of it).
Will the GPS be able to read the files from the SD on the route automatically or do I need to load them for each route I start?The GPS device will look for routes & waypoints in its internal memory & on the SD card.
Also will this give me turn by turn directions? Yesterday I rode 30miles to test out a local route and it prompted me to turn correctly on my route.The routes that you charted should give you navigation prompts. This is an excellent idea that you are practicing some rides in your neighborhood ahead of the trip.
In terms of the waypoints, is the Route and Services GPS Waypoints the appropriate download on the AC site?Yes:
However, I now need to add the Waypoints. Do I do this using the same method for the route? If you can guide me through, I'd really appreciate it...Of course. We shall work on the waypoints next.
