      Look at: http://www.elsinga. net/206.html

      Basically,

      1) Import the track into Mapsource from the 60CSx if you haven't done it
      already.
      2) Mess with the track in Mapsource all you want.
      3) Save the track as a V2 GDB file. Note: Version 2 of the file format
      4) Run WinGDB using the last processing option on the screen on the
      saved V2 GDB file saving it to a different file name.
      5) Load the converted V2 GDB file into mapsource.

      If I recall correctly, the 60CSx has a limit of 250 points for a
      non-turn-by- turn route and a limit of 50 points for a turn-by-turn
      route. I've used WinGDB once (right before I replied to this email) so I
      not 100% sure it works well. I do know that the converted GDB file did
      load into Mapsource and I saw the route.

      If that doesn't work then I can whip up some gpsbabel commands to do the
      same thing.
