Re Downloading Tracks
tomodub
These notes may help:
Go to the area in question.
Click on "Open Walks Finder" at left of page.
Select a track you are interested in by clicking on it.
At the bottom of the track you should see a button "Export Data"
Click on this and then choose what sort of track you want for the GPS, for example Create compressed version of track ...
Click on Download as GPX file. Click on Start Download
This will then allow you to get a .GPX file and save it on your pc/ mac etc..
Next what happens depends on the GPS unit. For newer devices the procedure for loading a .GPX file onto a Garmin is to copy it to a particular directory on the device.
For older devices you will need to use an intermediary product like GPSU or Gartrip which can be downloaded.
These allow transferring a .GPX file to a Garmin.
All this sounds a bit long winded, but if you do it a few times it becomes very quick.
An issue with some older Garmins is that they have limited capacity for many tracks.
Please ask if you have further questions.
Enjoy the track, but remember they are offered in the hope they are useful but with no guarantee.
