Fred, which gps has the most waypoints? is it the Garmin 78?
All of the newer Garmin lines hold 2000:  Montana, Oregon, GPSMAP 62x, and GPSMap 78x. I do not know of any that hold more. Does anyone else?

Thanks Fred, I may do a little research. How many waypoints would you need to do the TA or the Full Atlantic Coast?

Last year I counted 3206 waypoints in the Atlantic Coast route. Not having counted TA, I'd guess 1.5 to 2 times as many.

This is in many ways depend on the type of route you create. It can get very confusing.

There are at least three types of routes you can store on the Garmin Edge:

1. Route: the file extension is GPX. It allows for 100 points

2. Track: the file extension is GPX. It allows for 2,300 points. Garmin and some web sites state this as 16,363. Whenever I load a route with points more than 2,300, it gets truncated.

3. Course: the file extension in TCX. It allows > 18,000 points. Garmin manual state 16,363, but I tried a route at 18,000 points and there was no problem. The unit did not truncate it and displayed the correct total distance.

There are many details that compare the three types at
