GPS data of Great Divide Route

Hi All,

I have made the GPS data I collected this summer along the GDMBR available at:

GDMBR GPS page

These are detailed tracklogs of the entire route (so they can be a bit large).  But if you're interested in seeing exactly where the route goes (as well as detailed elevation profiles) they are very interesting.

On that page I've written a bit about how I collected, stored and processed the data--some comments about the total length of the trail as well as total climbing, too.

I'm having trouble finding the waypts etc for the Canada portion.  Is that cause there isn't any?  Or...

Hi Kathy,

The Canadian Great Divide waypoints are included with the  download for the U.S. portion of the GDMBR. After you unzip the download, look for the folder called "GD0Pv004 Folder". They should be in there.

Many Thanks Jennifer  Got 'em.

Next Question:
I do actually hope that this is another thing everyone knows but me!

How do I "delete all" of my waypts from my garmin GPSmap76CSx gps??

I put in 500 or so waypts for sections 5 & 6 when I rode those sections.  Now I need to load Canada, sections 1 thru 2.  In mid trip I will need to load secions 3 thru 5.  Deleting one at a time seems prohibitively difficult.

Do I have to switch to a trike so I can delete while I pedal??? :)

Hi All,
Just wanted to say I've been using Scott's tracks thru NM and they are totally enabling.

With my GPS on my handlebars, I can watch my track follow Scott's track.

It's clear, I pedal stronger when there is no doubt that I am going in the right direction.

Thank You, Scott!

Hi Kathy,

All the Garmin units have a way to delete waypoints all at once or by category. The 76CS has the Delete option at Find > Waypoints > Menu. Your 76CSx is probably similar. Perhaps someone who has access to its owner's manual will chime in. (I'm on the road too.)

As usual, Fred was correct, but there are a couple more selections he didn't mention. Here's how it works on my Garmin GPSmap 76C, which I suspect is the same. FIND key, WAYPOINTS icon, MENU key, DELETE keyword, ALL SYMBOLS keyword.
