GPS & Digital Data Discussion / GPX data to new gps
« on: March 01, 2024, 11:59:49 am »
I have done some looking around and can't find what I'm looking for and the Garmin Edge 1000 GPS listing is almost 10 years old (certainly not up to Garmin 1040) so...

I want to do the TX Hill Country loop next week. I ordered the map this week and figured I would buy the GPX data for the 1040 and load them up. This forum would indicate it ain't as simple as that! Tracks, routes, waypoints, maps, panels... sheesh!

When I download the GPX data, does it come in SEGMENTS that match the different MAPS on my paper map? If I ride halfway along a SEGMENT, do I turn off the GPS for the night and it will start back up today where I left off yesterday?

I have ridden MANY routes with my local bike club and haven't had this much ANGST about using my Garmin 1040. Maybe I'm just nervous because I'm going by myself and have no real idea how many miles per day I can do LOADED so I have no idea where to make reservations. Thinking about chucking the whole idea and selling the new map and drinking beer and sulking <G>!!!

Routes / TX Hill Country minus Austin

I'm looking at going to TX in the next few days to ride the TXHC route. I would likely park around Fredericksburg and I would like to avoid the sprawl and traffic of Austin. Any routing advice would be appreciated! (My first tour in FOREVER so I'm a bit nervous)

Can someone give me a feel for how hilly the route is from Fulton, MS to Owensboro, KY?
