  • Importing x-country ski trails as tracks

    I downloaded x-country ski trails distributed as tracks in GPX formats for my GPSMAP 64s. They display fine, but when I run the cursor over them, I don't get the trail name. Are there fields I should add to these tracks to make this work?

    If that doesn't work, I can convert these tracks into KMZ format. In this case, what can I do to get trail names as labels next to trails? Regular KML labels get converted as waypoints in Basecamp, but if I repeat a trail name (to make it visible despite zooming), a numeric suffix gets added in waypoints. Can I do better?
