First Trail Use of New Garmin
Okay, the Garmin eTrex 30 is too cool for popsicles.
I am uploading my two rides. I uploaded the data from the eTrex into BaseCamp and then I used BaseCamp to overlay Google Earth. I used different colors to define the two rides.
The magenta/purple trail was the first trail at 3.5 miles in distance with an elevation variance of less than a 100 ft. You can't tell, but we stayed in the valley due to the miniture and 4 yr old we were ponying.
The blue trail was the 2nd trip and was a short 35 minute ride through meadows with trails through light tree coverage.
My riding buddy and I are heading back down this weekend and hope to map out several of the trails. The important part will be stopping to catch trail markers.
that is way too cool for even penguins. I like the overlay of two rides in two colors. I wonder if I can do that with my eTrex Ventura HC? I need to do that!!! Aren't Garmins the Bomb?
You should be able to easily using Base camp. Click and select one ride and then change the trail color. After you do that you go into the one menu and select Google Earth and the two programs do the rest.
I dont think it would matter which Garmin you have.
I tried awhile ago - I have used Base Camp before but it loaded all the tracks at once. OMG can't tell one from the other!
That happened to me too. Luckily I saved each track with a date and trail number. You can rename the tracks in bc.
I was able to get two distinct tracks for the same date by saving the ride and turning the unit off. That's important.
I was able to go in a do something like that. I downloaded Google Earth - I had a new computer that it wasn't on - so I am still fiddling with it. My trails are wide in Base Camp!!! I tried to see if I could change that without any luck.
What's base camp?
This looks neat. I'm going to stick it on my wish list.
It is a program that comes with a Garmin to upload your tracks and waypoints.
I also use EveryTrail and Garmin Connect.
*goes to look up all the fancy gadgets that I've never even heard of before*
I would love to do trail riding like that one day! Whenever I get a horse, I'll have to look into places around here to do it.
