You need to download the USB drivers from Garmin to get the USB programmer to work again.

Thanks Bob, that worked great.

I've been looking over the routes, they look great. I realize that the text/PDF files are probably going to be used as accompaniment for GPS files etc, but for those of us Luddites who don't have the latest GPS' ....

In looking over the Big eight ride ... at mile 259, it says "R at stop to continue N on 21" .... should this be "L" instead of "R"?

Uhmmm. Now I'm scared! I went back to my notes to see if I just transcribed them wrong, but that's what my notes say, too. So I guess we'll have to leave it unless someone can run that route on the way into ES. If no one shows up for dinner that night, we'll know I got it wrong. Fortunately the "to continue north" part should make the mistake obvious.

Argh.

I don't route anything via GPS, either. I guess we can be old fashioned together.

I think I noted that anomoly also but went by the "continue north" when I was setting up the route for my GPS. If I recall looking at the map detail, it's pretty obvious which way to go.

johnlt said it's pretty obvious which way to go.

I thought so too, but I've made some bone-headed turns before, so I figured I'd better ask the dumb question and "remove all doubt" ....

Tucson, the other Arizona
I may have the density of lead, but I'm not able to match up the written instructions for the Green Big Eight Ride with the JPEG map green route. The written instructions say to head east on 74 (marked blue on the map) and south on 123 (which isn't colored at all). The map shows a green route staying on 7 to the west of this, until 123 and 7 meet.

Did you ride both routes, color one on the map and write the other one down in the instructions?



Mark T. My bike finally sold. When I picked up the check my wife said, "Oh good, now we can use that for the new sofa we bought." Cold woman.

Mark, you are absolutely correct. The printed route sheet is accurate, but I goofed when coloring the map. I'll have corrected color maps to give people on Monday.

Good catch, and thanks for the heads up.

Attached a final run-through based on David's printed route sheets. If anybody cares to compare these to theirs, that would be great.

Incidentally, they're calculated ("Fastest" not shorter) in City Navigator. The mileage counts are slightly lower than those provided by David, most likely because the MapSource mileage is low.
