Google to Garmin - can do
If you save a Google "path" as a .kml file and use a conversion program, such as gpsbabel, to convert it into .mps format it is possible to upload the path directly to your gps as a "track". The track is based on coordinates, and not points on an image, and so is very accurate. I'm guessing there must be a simple way to convert the track points into route points... At the moment the only way I can see it can be done is by going over the track in mapsource with the route tool. As my tracks are thousands of kms long I don't really want to do this. I can't image it's too difficult to convert. Just waiting for the right gps techie type to come along and give me what is surely a simple solution.
Ramadan's over, and the weather seems to have turned...definitely looks like
season. I agree it's about time we got the UAE crowd together for a few
s. Weekend after next might be a good time. I'll put up a post and send out a message to the UAE mob. Any ideas for a venue?
