Adding MapMyRide Route to GPSMap62s

Recommended Posts

I've only ever used my GPS to cache with and to get basic directions etc.

 

I'm planning on a few small cycling trips this year and thought I would create some routes and pop them onto my unit.

 

I've created a route on MapMyRide, it's a GPX formatted file and I have copied/pasted into my GPX file which is on my unit. When I check the unit I can't find the route at all. I've been adviced that I should go to main menu - route planner, and that the route should show up there for me to select. This is where I have encountered a problem - the route isn't there.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

There are three different 'flavors' of *.gpx file that are used for different purposes, and appear in different ways on a GPS. If you open your MapMyRide file, it will appear with a ton of <waypt>, <trk> or <rte> entries. I believe MapMyRide uses only <trk> which should, as Walter notes, appear as a track, not individual waypoints on your 62.
