Copying track files from SD card?
- I've got a GPSMAP60CSX with 1gb MicroSD card.I sometimes go away backpacking for long periods and I cant get to a computer for a while.Id like to carry many more than 20 saved tracks with me, and Im wondering if its possible to save them in the SD card and then later on to copy them from the card into the list of 20 saved tracks in internal memory. That way Id be able to carry an almost unlimited number of saved tracks.Does anyone know if its possible?Thanks

the SD card, if you just want to track where you have been. Depends what
you want to do with them - obviously having them on the SD card won't
let you 'backtrack' them, but they are available for upload on your PC
at a later date.
If you want to carry them FROM the PC, for use as routes or for
backtracking or whatever, then the thing to do it to turn them into .img
files ('maps') which can be loaded into the SD card and viewed on the
screen like any other sort of map. You can also load POI that way.
btw, you are on the wrong group for csX questions .. and it does matter,
because what I'm suggesting isn't possible with the basic C/CS models.
