40750Re: [John Muir Trail] GPS Waypoints
- Apr 6, 2014I use a 1:24000 map that has UTM grid coordinates. I look up the place on my map - determine what the grid coordinate is and enter into GPS.Be sure to check what map datum you are using and set your GPS to that datum.

I usually upload just the waypoints rather than the route.You can also go from Google Maps or Google earth to waypoint files in other formats.John Curran Ladd

What is the best way to create a GPS route and waypoints of major points of interest along the trail, such as passes, trail junctions, food drop points, etc? I have a Garmin GPSmap 60CSx.
