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.
That said, your routes look good. Consider renaming them in the order of travel. My earlier notes
still stand. For example, in this latest file, I find:
- Route J08870_46, towards the western end, it continues west on route 156, only to make a U-turn and then travel north.
- What is J06700.ADDED.01? Is that a spur for a site visit that you are planning?
- Route J06730 1.ADDED.02 is identical to route J06730_49. Why have both?
You may have your reasons for doing them that way. They are not as obvious to me.
However, even with these comments, I think you will be fine for the majority of the route. Keep the paper maps as a close reference.
- When I'm done editing what I need from them should I export and take the <rte> <rte/> out in the files?
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.
In BaseCamp, select the folder you want to export, for example Campgrounds. From the menu bar, select Export "Campgrounds". The result file should contain only the waypoints you have in the Campgrounds folder. Are you seeing different results?
- Should I contain them in one folder or as named (Campgrounds, Restaurants, Bike Shops, etc)?
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.
However, once they are on the GPS device, it will not make a difference what folder they were in, or what GPX file they are stored in.
