Re: GPS Units

It is also possible to split a gpx file into smaller sizes so your GPS will accept it. I dont remember any more how I did it. One off my gps had some difficulties reading a big gpx file with plenty off data. It was TETFinland gpx track so I divided it up in 3 parts.

Re: Best way to navigate, track or route?

From my understanding with using track and garmin montana is that you can search for nearest fuelstaion for example and have the gps give you directions while your TET track shows in the background. When you found your fuel you just re follow that TET track. Using Route I asume you will have to term...
