Default Downloadable GPX files of the trails.

All untested, be especially wary of the kokopelli gpx file.
Gary from BookCliffs helped me get the gpx files with permission from FunTreks. They should track along with the trail book pretty well.

Hope it helps.

Dome and Seven Mile are a little different then how we plan to run them. Both look interesting though. My Mapsource Software won't let me save .gpx or I'd upload mine.

Chicken Corners lacks the must-see Catacomb Rock.

Great additions though!

Best tool I've been using lately is Garmin's "Basecamp." Jon from Bookcliffs found it for me.

Excellent basic functionality for waypoint management and file import/export/exchange Kinda clunky, but you get what you pay for. (free.)

There is a directory on the FTP server called Cruise_Moab/2012/Trails/ if you want to update the gpx files stored there with "better" ones. I figured this way they would be easier to find in the future after I'm gone and this thread is lost in the archives.

Yes, my Garmin Mapsource has a "save as" for .gpx and it crashes every time I try it. Otherwise its decent. Lots of online tips, like creating POIs which get saved on the memory card and are almost unlimited versus way points which are on internal memory and limited.

I also just found http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/. whoa. excellent. Got Israel and Colorado over the weekend.

OK, on the subject of GPS units, what is the suggestion if I wanted to pick one up? This would be only for the 40 and I want to track/find off road trails. I have a really old Garmin that is useless and my 'smartphone' needs to have service apparantly. I have downloaded a few GPS trail applications on said phone but as soon as I get up in the hills, its useless.

i've got a delorme pn-40. the screen is a bit small but it works really well and the software is straightforward to use. been using it for the past few years without any issues.

i recently just added an iPad with motionx gps hd and a bad elf gps puck. night and day difference. the delorme is now the back up unit.

i can add gpx files to motionx with drag and drop through iTunes. i currently have most of the fun treks trails loaded.

the bad elf unit functions even if you don't have 3g or wifi. the only thing you need to do is download the map tiles before you head out. depending on how many you grab and the resolution of the tiles, it can take awhile.

Ipad with antenna will be my next setup someday.

I have used Etrex's for 12+ years. the new ones are so much better than the old B&W models

This is a great deal: http://www.amazon.com/New-eTrex-Lege...5409454&sr=8-3

Compare features on the Garmin website and then hop to Amazon. You will need desktop software to make it shine, some free ones out there. I'm not sure if you must at least buy Map source. Topos are free on the web in many places but you still need interface software.
