    HELP! Race tomorrow! Garmin Edge 205 only showing half the course

    I converted a .gpx file for the chequamegon 100 to .crs so I can use it on a garmin edge 205. I'm using gpsies.com to convert. After conversion, only half the course is there in the garmin software and on the device. Any idea what's going wrong? Thanks!

    I'm only seeing this now so it might be too late, but you are probably just running into the 13,000 point limit.

    This tutorial for uploading with TopoFusion might help:

    http://topofusion.com/tutorials/uploading-tracks.php

    It'll walk you through how to check the number of points and simplify if needed.

    Have a good race!

    Isn't there a limit of 500 points per track that you transfer? I've had my tracks truncated when transferring to Garmin. You need to to edit the track first, then transfer it.

    Thanks for replying. I downloaded topofusion and checked the number of points. It has 9755 so I don't think that is the problem. Lots of other people were having problems with the file as well so I think that I may not be doing anything wrong.

    The race was great, especially if you like navigating: http://www.chequamegon100.com/
