Any clues on how to resolve this?What is it you are trying to do?
Have you found an alternative to Google Latitude
Do you have any idea why when I enter ACA data into Google Earth, it displays all the waypoints, but for some sections it displays only about 1/3 of the route (for example, WE 1 and 4) while for others it displays the entire route (WE 2 and 3)?Not really. I can only take a guess.
I'm trying to get maps with elevation profiles of some ACA routes.Your best bet is to use the paper maps published by ACA. They include an elevation profile.
First I tried using the ACA GPS files.This is one way to get a general idea about the elevation profile. Once you have the GPX file, load it onto your favorite web site tool such as Ride with GPS or GPSies. Both sites will show you the elevation profile and total elevation gain.
With Section 2, it seemed to map the whole route and give an elevation profile, but the distance it shows is only 300 miles, much less than the ACA says it is.This is expected. The GPX file posted on the ACA web site (at the time of this post) is a general representation of the route. It has a series of route points that could be > 10km apart, connected by a straight line, instead of exactly following the route. Therefore, the straight line is expected to be shorter than the meandering actual road.
The new Garmin Edge Touring (uses OpenStreetMap for basemap and routing) might be a contender, too.Indeed. It is available for pre-order. The basic unit without heart-rate support is $249. The Plus unit with heart-rate support is $299.
I'm wondering if/how the new Garmin Edge Touring allows for updates of its underlying OpenStreetMap (OSM) data.I do not believe this is clear just yet. I have not seen any reference from Garmin to indicate the availability and method for updates.
BTW, I'm an owner of more than one Garmin GPS device, and I REALLY do prefer the much-greener NiMH (rechargeable via my solar panels) AA batteries. If a device doesn't use AAs (and NiMHs well), I might not buy it, and I'm not alone!The unit has built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery accordingly to the product specifications page. This is the same for all the Edge series units.
|Model||MSRP (you can often find lower prices in retail stores and online)||Map in background||Heart rate (belt purchased separately)||Navigation||Comments|
|Edge 810||$499||Yes||Yes||Yes:||This is the latest GPS cum bicycle computer cum navigation machine. It should be fantastic when it works. Earlier releases of the firmware on the unit had many defects. The unit was practically not usable. I think they fixed many of the issues by now.|
|Edge 510||$329||No||Yes||Yes. There are a couple of options:||This is my current favorite. I navigate with it on new routes all the time with no trouble. Very easy to use. Very stable. Many advanced features.|
|eTrex 30||$299||Yes||Yes||Yes, similar navigation to the Edge 810.||This is one solid GPS, practically indestructible, very long battery life, AA batteries can be replaced easily, very easy and simple to operate.|
|eTrex 10||$109||No||No||Yes, similar navigation to the Edge 510.||Similar to eTrex 30 with fewer functions and features, but very usable.|
