Re: Trying to set up maps on old Garmin without success.

I finally found a great way to upload complete TET tracks to older Garmin GPS devices without having to shorten or convert them to be under 500 waypoints. You can easily create a transparent overlay map using the free tool IMGfromGPX. You'll get the tool here: http://www.javawa.nl/imgfromgpx_en.html...

Re: Tyre inflation?

I also have a small mtb pump with me all the time, but after having to use it last weekend it will be just the emergency backup and duct tape holder in the future. I'm either going for a bigger one or take 3-4 CO2 thingies with me

Re: Convert TET track to route for older Garmin ?

I know it could and will possibly happen to try to navigate me on different roads than the TET track when trying to go on autorouting. But I think in sweden it will stick a lot to "real gravel roads" that are also contained in my City Navigator map and are routable. So this is at least an idea, but ...

Convert TET track to route for older Garmin ?

Hey, I just wondered how many of you do the TET whilst using the routing-function of your (Garmin) GPS device. I have an older GPSmap 278 with City Navigator 2008 and did upload the TET track as an transparent overlay map to have it as a cyan line on my display. So far so good, but there´s now no wa...

Re: iOS Apps for Navigation

Does anyone know if I can change the appearance of gravel roads in Galileo to become brown instead of white like all other roads ?

Re: GPS Units

If I had an Android device, I'd try the Locus Pro App, which even offers weather forecast (possibly within the map?). Galileo doesn't look too bad, I tried it yesterday on my 6s. My 5s needs a reset and makes a bit of trouble at the moment. I think I will go for CN 2013 on my 278 with shortened (les...

Re: GPS Units

Thanks Didado, I have a very tough case from a friend for the iPhone 5 so this should work. My 6s is just for personal use. Galileo, Viewranger and Maps Me are on my list to give them a try this evening. Motion X and OSMand possibly out by now. Does it also track navigation with hints or is it just ...
