Traveling S to N on the Great Divide starting in mid June.  Struggling with best option for downloading  the GDMBR track to my computer and then to my Etrex30. I do have the ACA paper maps.  Options seem to be the following:
1. Adventure cycling Tracks (low resolution)
2. Adventure Cycling Tracks and Service Points Limited
3. Topofusion Tour Divide 2016 v2 10K.gpx
4. Topofusion GDMBR basemapv3.img
I would appreciate any recommendations/ pros and cons etc. about which option or options I should use.

Also do I need to/ should I install Garmin's basecamp on my computer?
Is continuing to be a very steep learning curve for this first time GPS user. Certainly appreciate the ACA forums. Thanks

1. Adventure cycling Tracks (low resolution)
Available, although Adventure Cycling is working to convert more routes into high resolution. Keep watching for this one.

2. Adventure Cycling Tracks and Service Points Limited
Available for members.

Also do I need to/ should I install Garmin's basecamp on my computer?
No, you do not need Basecamp as pre-requisite. You can use the files directly.

Refer to detailed step by step instructions specific to eTrex device.
