LOTS OF FOLKS USE IT, BUT SOME THINGS WITH THIS APP ARE NOT SO INTUITIVE TO ME. SEEMS TO HANDEL .GPX FILES PRETTY GOOD.

I have a file that contains 12 routes and 12 tracks. I couldn't get OsmAnd to pull them apart. It would only display all 12 routes at a time.

During our TARA monthly meet-and-greet. I found out using Garmin Base Camp, I can separate each of the 12 routes into individual files. Then import the individual files into OsmAnd.

This solved the problem.

I'm looking forward to learning how to save my own maps.

This is what I mean, you really have to want it to finally figure out stuff. Unfortunately all this gps stuff is complicated when doing custom stuff

I've talked to Richard about staging a Basecamp/GPS class some time. Maybe at one of the monthly meetings. Set up a laptop and a projector.

OsmAnd update... I downloaded the maps for our TARA monthly rides and had a chance to use them this Saturday. OsmAnd worked fine for me. It not very user friendly. But after talking with Garmin junkie's, that system isn't that friendly either. If you want it, you got to sit down and figure it out. It's not Google Maps.

Navigated for the first time with it today and it worked for me too. Just need to get used to it.

Now, anybody know what map to download for basecamp that has good information for what roads are gravel for planning/creating routes?
