GPS Waypoints

Post by MikeT »

I am attaching a PDF file of my GPS Waypoints for the island along with exported files in .GPX, .KML and .MXF format. These should be able to be imported into most GPS units or, imported in comma-delineated form and manipulated to suit your needs.
(Note: The Web Board will not allow me to upload a .KML or .MXF file for some reason so I made it a .ZIP file)

These are the waypoints I used in the revised/updated book along with all of my tracks to generate my trail and portage elevation profiles. I will work on exporting the tracks themselves in the future.

I was recent given a Garmin GPSmap 60Cx. I've been using a 2000 vintage ETrex Summit. Apparently, I can't copy all the ISRO waypoints I've used over the years to the "new" Garmin. Can't use MapSource with Windows 10 either. Anyway, the link to the GPS waypoints file does not work. Is there an updated one?
