    Converting a route to waypoints

    Hello,

    I was wondering if there was a way you could take a route, convert that to a Garmin gps rout, or series of waypoints that can be uploaded to a garmin GPS?

    Thanks

    Try this: http://www.hypercubed.com/projects/coordex/

    I added the gamin support via GPS Babel fairly recently so I'm not sure how it works. Garmin support is provided via GPSBabel ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/gpsbabel ) so you will need to download that also.

    Oh... one thing... this will upload as waypoints not routes at this time.

    Thanks

    WOW thanks i think that will help alot!

    I havn't had a chance to test it yet but i just ahve a quick question/sugestion. When you want to upload a route from mappoint, does it just take the coardinates of the place you need to make a turn, or will it give you intermediate steps after a certain distance or at places the road curves? This woud be a useful feture for a gps and i would assume you have it but i just wantto check.

    Thanks
