Caches Along A Route

If you have Mapsource, use PQs and GSAK.

 

Check this thread Caches Along A Route Instrucitons

 

Open Mapsource, (be careful not to inadvertently put any stray waypoints on the map)

select the route feature

click on your starting point

click on your ending point

watch it create the route,

click on File, Export and select mps; put the file where you can find it.

 

Open GSAK,

Create Filter (Ctrl-F); go to Arc/Poly tab

on this dialog, click on "Load from File" button

select the mps file (I get a long list of coordinates which are the nodes on the route)

select a distance from the arc (e.g. 1.5 miles)

save the filter (I have occasional lock-ups in GSAK when I use the Arc/Poly facility)

now run the filter.

Mapsource with PQs and GSAK works great and simple ... I like the simple part. :rolleyes:
