Re: [John Muir Trail] Software for uploading waypoints and tracks to GPS devices
I think I'll download the ExpertGPS and give it a try.
On another note, I am using a Molle Gen 4 frame with a Kelty Super Tioga Pack -- I can e-mail some picks if interested.

Having now used both, I find the ExpertGPS an improvement over EasyGPS, esp. when you don't have as good a set of downloadable waypoints as Halfmile's set. You can open a free USGS topo map in ExpertGPS for anywhere in the US within ExpertGPS and then click on wherever you want to define a waypoint (e.g., at each turn in the trail or at the tops and bottoms of climbs). Of course, this assumes that the USGS topo includes an indication of where the trail is. (Trails re-routed since the last USGS update would be problematic)
I should have provided a URL
You can use it free for 30 days, and then decide if you want to buy it
- Has anyone used TopoFusion? It makes great maps but have not tried downloading waypoints with it,
