Title: GPS Data User Guide?
Post by: DarrenBnYYC on July 24, 2015, 12:32:59 pm
I can't seem to find the GPS Data User Guide on the ACA website. The hyperlink provided in the GPS data download files (e.g., DCAboutV005.pdf) provides a stale (and broken) hyperlink to:
http://adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/gps-information/gps-data-user-guide/

But that link generates an error to unavailable content.

The sticky in this forum directs one to navigate here:
"From the ACA front page, go to Routes and Maps > GPS Information"

But there is no longer a link for "GPS Information"

If you use the search tool on "GPS Data User Guide," you get forwarded to the Digital Data for Devices page.

I cruised around on all the pages under Digital Data for Devices, but couldn't find the Guide. Perhaps these pages replace what used to be a PDF-format guide?

Any pointers from anyone? Thanks.

Sorry for the confusion. As we move to new formats for the GPS data, we have moved some items and created some new documents. The guide you are looking for is now located here: http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/routes/gps-data-user-guide/ (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/routes/gps-data-user-guide/)

In the page for  Routes and Service Points (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/routes/), there is a link to the right for GPS Data User Guide (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/routes/gps-data-user-guide/) & Quick Start Guide (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/routes/quick-start-guide/).
