Tracklogs

If I walk or cycle any particularly interesting routes I may make the Tracklogs available here.

File formats:
GPX, OziExplorer (.plt) and Garmin MapSource (.mps or .gdb)
You will need MapSource version 6 or newer to open GDB files, this is a free upgrade if you have a previous version.

If you want to convert to another format try GPSBabel or G7ToWin to convert to your preferred format.

I may have digital maps of these areas (suitable for use with OziExplorer etc) but due to copyright issues and lack of webspace they are not available here.  Please email me for more info.
