Uploading a merged GPX file to my Oregon 450

Scott:

It's me again.  Sorry but I can't seem to work this out by myself.  I want to upload the merged file from TF to my Oregon.  I believe I followed your User Manual instructions accurately.  However, instead of getting the merged file into my Track Manager on the Oregon, I get a vast multitude of files with different names but NEVER see the name of the merged file.  It's a giant pain to delete these files from the Oregon...but I can do this.  I need your help in getting my new, merged file into the GPS.

What am I doing wrong?

Stuart

Stuart,

Unfortunately this is a serious limitation of the GPS.  If the GPX file you upload has multiple tracks, they all come up separately and (worse) need to be toggled on separately.

See this thread:

It has some info suggesting the use of custom map tiles for this type of situation.  It'll work as long as your tracks aren't covering too huge of an area.
