Mdxix, could you clarify, please?
My suggestion is to put the ACA route on the GPS unit without the waypoints. You can see the route, navigate, and get prompts for directions.
Fred & Bill, can you try loading the Green Mountains file on your GPS? It is athttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/30524605/ACA/GM01v003.gpx
I have stripped this file from any waypoints. Can your GPS navigate its routes? Does it show you that it did not add any waypoints?
Let me clarify with some details. ACA files have two main sections in them:
- The top section has a list of waypoints. These are scattered all over the map. They are independent of each other. They are not connected to each other in any way. They are points of interest. These are wrapped with <wpt> tags. They have the coordinates and name for each waypoint as the following example:
<wpt lat="44.4690527" lon="-73.1807019">
- The second part of the file has routes (within <rte> tag) connected by route points (within <rtept> tag), not waypoints. They appear as follows in the file:
<rtept lat="44.4745800" lon="-73.2195100">
<cmt>King St/Bike Path</cmt>
As far as I can tell, when you choose a route to navigate, you are choosing it from the second part of the file, not the first. I know this because I can completely delete the entire first part of the file and still navigate just as well. Only the GPS memory is not exhausted by waypoints. See the screen images I posted earlier
Does the same happen to you with the sample Green Mountains file?
