- Daily log for the activity of that day. When needed to split the day, I record separate laps
- Safer files. While rare, it does happen that a file gets corrupt. I would then lose only one day instead of the entire trip.

What I want to know is if I apply a USB charging current to the Oregon 450, will it switch to running off the external source and save the internal AA batteries?It seems like it should. The manual recommends using an external power when operating the unit extensively, with a reference to Vehicle Power Cable "to power your Garmin device and conserve battery life."
which works well offline and and allows for downloading maps.What is your reference here to "downloading maps"? Can it actually download enough map tiles to work offline? Does it know to automatically do that for all tiles related to the charted route?
I found that if i choose Waypoints instead of Tracks, I am able to see the ACA gpx files in Maverick!Indeed, Maverick does appear to support points of interest but not routes or tracks. Perhaps at a later release?
#1 priority would be to load the ACA gpx file on the phone and see it on a map with my current location to see if I'm on track. I'd be satisfied if I could only do this when I have an internet signal although it would be nice if I could do it with a GPS signal.I read about the Maverick Pro app you reference. I also watched their instructions video. I do not find any options in it for loading custom GPX tracks.
#2 priority would be to have the capability of storing some maps with gpx tracks offline. I've got Maverick Pro and have imported the gpx files but can't see them when I go to the map.I am not sure how to do that, except trying to cache some maps in memory while using the apps listed for #1 above.
Ouch. That is brave enough.QuoteCan you try simulation now? How does it work?It ran for a few miles, went into infinite-loop-at-the-interchange mode, and then crashed the GPSR. I had to pull the batteries out of the unit to reset it. I wasn't brave enough to try the Ride With GPS file
Currently, most of these discussions takes place on the GPS board, but we can see how things develop and create a new board if necessary.I agree. Conversations in the GPS board will likely evolve and become more about Electronic Navigation or better yet eNavigation
I am unable to run a simulation of the Ride With GPS route, as BaseCamp recognizes it as a track and not a route. It will load onto the etrex, but I cannot run a simulation.I do not believe that you have to use BaseCamp at all to use the two routes that I just gave you. Try this please:
I'm going to have to take their word that this won't be a major issue when I am on the road, do my best to make the routes as accurate and stable as possible in BaseCamp before transferring them to the etrex, and then hope for the best!Really? Can you try charting a route in BaseCamp near your house, load it, and go out for a ride to verify that the eTrex will behave as expected?
Can I safely delete these, as well as all of the routes which appear at the bottom of the scroll? We have made this information redundant, correct?Exactly, you got it.
when I transfer the "Mod" file into the GPSR and run it in demo mode, it shows the straight-line, point-to-point route correctly. When I recalculate the route and run the GPSR in simulation mode, it becomes confused at an interchange along the route and truncates the route.This is strange. You mean that the route does not show following the road? Are you sure that you have loaded the City Navigator map onto your GPS? Remember that you need to transfer the maps from your computer to the GPS using Map Install.
1. What is the best, most simple way for me to save these modified routes to my Mac and then BaseCamp for transfer to the GPSR?Once you have the routes on your Mac, drag & drop onto BaseCamp. In BaseCamp, create a new list and put all of them in it. That will make it easiest to export them.
2. Once the route data has been massaged and loaded, how do I get the waypoint data (Point(s) of Interest only, with no routing data), loaded into the GPSR so that I can find campgrounds, etc.? Will this be a process which parallels the route modification process?Put all the waypoints that you want to use in a new list under My Collection. From there, export that list into a GPX file and copy it to the unit. Or transfer it directly from BaseCamp to the unit.
