Happy New Year back at ya!

I perused your site prior to this post and I'm not seeing a link for the Txt files. So I tried working with the download link you provided last month for the text file, adjusting the increment for the new version and I'm getting an error. http://www.switchbacks.com/maps/downloads/NW_Trails_v1.53_DeLorme.zip

A new pointer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm hesitant to publicly post the link for the text files - Ben at Redtrails.com likely wouldn't want that any more than he did the GPX link I used to provide.

Drop the "maps" portion of the link to access the .zip file (sorry, I neglected to mention that I rearranged the layout of the site during the conversion to ASP.net and this broke the usual path to the download).

I kind of figured that might have been why the link isn't there. I was just trying to make sure I wasn't missing something. Thanks for the new pointer!

I'd really like to make the process for the DeLorme version more streamlined.  Any suggestions on how to make it easier and more straightforward for users without potentially upsetting the apple cart with Redtrails.com?

I'm working on a new web page to post on my Comcast or Wix.com account. I'm planning on providing an imbedded link which I'll update the version number when I see your posts.

Not sure if my Colorado is acting strangely or this new build has altered zoom levels, but I can still see all the trails when out at the maximum zoom of 800km.

I'm wondering if a firmware update is responsible.  I'm seeing the same thing on my Oregon 550t right now.  In Mapsource, however, the trails are disappearing out beyond 7 miles on medium detail as expected.

If this isn't corrected in a firmware revision or two, I'll have to revise the zoom levels to guarantee that the trails disappear when zoomed out.

I'm seeing the same thing on my GPSmap 60Cx..  I unzoom to 200mi and I still see the trails being drawn...  I am not sure if this was present before.  I also only see Washington, since I don't load everything from mapsource (just what I need).

I'm not sure why the change then.  It is possible that this change is due to my recent upgrade of cGPSmapper to the latest version (cGPSmapper is the application that compiles the data into the GPS-friendly format).

How critical is an immediate fix of this?  It probably would have taken me months to discover it as I never zoom out much further than 5 miles or so.

A fix is not important to me.  I would have never noticed it either, except my kid was playing with the scroll wheel on my GPS and had zoomed all the way out...  Angry  The problem may have even been there in the last build, I cant say for sure.

Not a big deal, I wouldn't have noticed it either if I didn't see the post on here..

When do you plan the next update?  I have a track I want to submit, but it is not complete and I would rather submit the whole thing at once instead of in pieces, but I would like to see it on the next release if I can get it in on time..

Thanks

The change happened with v1.44.  I'm a pack rat, and never throw files away, so I regressed NW Trails by jumps and then narrowed it farther until I didn't see it in v1.43, but did in v1.44 (if all you load is NW Trails it just takes seconds to download).

I don't think it's a big deal, I seldom zoom that far out (I can see trails at 500 miles - max - on my 60csx).

Thanks for tracking that down, Jester.  I guess my memory is going - that's when I removed the display restrictions on the trails so that they would intentionally show at all levels after a couple of complaints from people who wanted to see them at lower zoom levels.  I guess I forgot about that fact since they still disappear in Mapsource.
