  • Getting an autorouted route into a usable course file

    An autorouted route from Mapsource or nRoute which is converted to a .gpx and then run through something like gpx2crs will often end up as a straight line between the endpoints. To get the whole course onto your device do the following:
    In Mapsource:
    remove other routes in list
    save as .gpx.I
    File - the .gpx
    Position List: expand and delete the non-track positions with the X leaving xxx (Track) selected
    Type: should be Track
    Save As: GPS Exchange Format 1.1 (*.gpx)
    Check: Save only this position list:
    Click on floppy to save
    In gpx2crs:
    Tab - Convert GPX to Course
    GPX File: the .gpx file
    Check: Simulate an average speed of x mph, your choice
    Click Convert
    Save file as .crs
    In Training Center:
    Tab - Courses
    Select the .crs file from previous step
    If multiple courses appear, delete the one(s) that don't look right
    Send to Device
    No guarantees, but it worked for me on a 310XT
