Pioneer mine trail GPS file update


I have revised the GPS file to add the WPs that all the contributors provided. The basic track is unchanged.
Please use your tool to create a .KML or .GPX file from the attached .USR file.

It would be helpful to all if you converted .usr files to .gpx or .kml.

Sorry about that.
GPX files are way to big for attachments
Compare 80kB for USR and 657kB for GPX which is above the Nomad limit of 250kB

We are going to ride it in the next two weeks. Been planning it out on GE. We'll swing out to Bahia Calamajue after riding through.

I hate those usr files
GPSBabel does not translate them correctly

actually I hate it even more that every GPS manufacturer has to have their own software
so, moving data in the field from one machine to the other is usually impossible

Bable does have an issue.
I now use Trackmaker with success.
Tom uses http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/ with success.
The Lowrance Gen3 usr files are a problem due to the new format the some conversion SW have not adapted to.

I don't use usr files since all my devices are Garmin so I use gpx files. Paul can correct me but most off road racers use usr files since most have Lowrance GPS units. In the beginning they were marine fish finding systems converted to off road use since they had big screens. I haven't looked into todays race cars/trucks for the past couple of years to see what is being used.

Broken record here, but this is another huge reason to use a GPS app on your smartphone.

Back Country Navigator emails you a .gpx file of your track.

Ppl, throw your out-dated standalone GPS systems in the trash (or sell them on craigslist) and get a good phone!

It is just one road, no choices once you leave Molino de Lacy.

I have mentioned it before that I am using a low price Andriod tablet, woks ok with some drawbacks. Most of them use Garmin format.
As mentioned there are many gps apps for both phones and tablets. Yes I do send GPX files via email. Just ask via U2U with an email address. The conversion take less than a minute.
The answer to Tom's question is that the serious racers are most all using the large screen Lowrance GPSs (fish finder with stuff like radar and sonar disabled). They are still the best, but way to expensive for me. I have several small older ones and they do not get used much. They are very hard to find used on the web. Figure the small Lowrance (5") sold new for double the cost of a Nuvi,but the Lowrance units are full featured to make trails and import and export via SD card.
