The Zumo 550 arrived last week, and I'm very pleased.

Don't know if anyone has seen this:

http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/gmaptogpx/

It's a piece of JavaScript that captures a route generated in Google Maps and produces a GPX listing. You cut/paste the data into a GPX document and open it with MapSource. You may get multiple routes; look at the GPX file and you'll see where you need to delete tags to keep one route.

It's a pretty quick way to get a map using Google's "drag the route" function.

I want to get some good routes ready for spring...

Looks like we may have dodged a bullet here tonight. There's not much snow at all.

Thanks for the link. I'm just south of you, Rockford, and the snow was really varied. Anywhere from 1 to 12 inches depending on where you were in town.

Is it June yet?

View any ride or route and push the button that say's save as GPX.

It took me a while of polking around on the site to get familiar with it but once you do it's sweet.
