Title: Where is the Download Data??
Post by: Ralphieboy on July 16, 2015, 10:03:58 pm
Where is the GPS data for downloading?? I wanted to download the Green Mountains Loop but can't find it. As a member I thought that info was free.

Go to the ACA Routes main Page > Maps Section >Green Mountains Loop (right side of page).  Then click on the "GPS" section near the top of the Green Mountain Loop section summary.  That will take you to the GPS data page.  Be sure you are logged in to be able to download the info.

Happy Trails, John

I'm attempting to find the GPS files for the Great Divide.  I'm not finding a link to these anywhere.  Have I missed it somewhere?

Same location as referred to in response above (copied below), substituting Great Divide Mountain Bike Route for Green Mountains Loop:

So, that's exactly my question.  Exactly where on the page is the download link?  I linked to the exact page in my post above, yet there is nothing on the page about downloading GPX or routes. I've even done a search on each page for those words ('GPX' and 'download') and I can't find anything.  Thus my asking more specifically if I've missed something on those pages.

That path should have taken you to this page:

https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/

Once on that page, you will discover two kinds of data we offer, depending on the route. The GDDMBR data is of the Routes and Service Points type. Click on that link for more specific information about that data. To download the data, click on Route GPS Waypoints or Route and Services GPS Waypoints (member only) on the right side of the page to be lead through the process of downloading.

I hope this helps.

Thank you!  It's over to the right.  It seems that it would make sense to be on the page for each of the maps as well, no?  In any case , thanks again!

The data that is for sale -- Bicycle Route 66 and Idaho Hot Springs Mountain Bike route only right now -- is found on Cyclosource. The other data is free and a link leading you to the data is on the Routes & Mapping route page.

I am a member and can only seem to find the low res trail data without the waypoint data you used to provide.

Am I missing something. I logged in as a member. Am using a Mac / FIrefox.
