+Thot Posted September 13, 2011 Share Posted September 13, 2011 I spent the better part of a day yesterday trying to get benchmarks into GSAK in a useful form. In your pinned Me First topic, under County Downloads, nothing seems to work. It reads: If you click here, NGS - it will take you to the NGS site. Just select the state, click Get County Archives, select the county and choose the file format (zipped if you are on dial-up internet) then click Download. Save this file to your hard drive. You will need to download BMGPX to convert the downloaded file into a GPX format for use with other programs. You can get BMGPX here. BMGPX Once you have installed BMGPX on your computer all you need to do is drag and drop the county file (unzipped) onto the BMGPX "icon" and it will spit out a gpx file ready to use. First, clicking on NGS, as instructed, is a dead link. Second, after stumbling around on the NGS site I found my state, but there was nothing about "County Archives." Third, so, I downloaded the huge State file and dropped it on BMGPX (an unsupported program) and it choked on the file. Fourth, I found a page that allowed me to select my county's data but wouldn't allow me to download it. It refused saying I was asking for too much data. Fifth, I downloaded some benchmark files from GC in Loc format (GPX doesn't appear to be available) but when imported into GSAK the descriptions are not present in a form that can be exported to my Palm or Nuvi in the way I do cache descriptions. Is there a (hopefully straightforward) way to get benchmarks into GSAK. Quote Link to comment
