JCRL Posted November 30, 2008 Share Posted November 30, 2008 I have received a Shape not file (.shp) with all the Snowmobile trails for New Brunswick which is approximately 8 meg. I have a Garmin GPS 60 CSx, and would like to be able to load these trails into my 60CSx the same as any other Garmin map set so I can see the snowmobile trails on a map of the province. The originator of this file uses two or three different types of GPS receivers. A couple are high end ($6000 units) manufactured by Trimble, the other is a cheapy ($300 Canadian Tire version) made by Garmin, model 12. Both of these units will accept shape files. / the originator I have done some reading on this at this site http://www.highspeedsat.com/satellite-gps/...d6527f24774701a, but it makes no sense to me. I'm a little nervous downloading trial s/w if needed to do the conversion, and for a one time conversion, not worth purchasing it to find it doesn't work. Has anyone done this? I can send you the 8 meg shape file if that helps. I have a 1 gig memory card for my unit, so if I can get this shape file converted to a Garmin format, the size should not be an issue. If anyone can lend a hand or some advise, would be greatly appreciated. Tx email@example.com Quote Link to comment
