Simply plug the card into your GPS unit and see your exact position as you move along the trail.
The cards work with most Garmin GPS units as well as a few other brands. If your GPS unit has an SD card slot and can import files in “.GPX” format, it will probably work. You will need to consult your GPS user’s manual for instructions on importing files to the GPS unit.
Routes match the guidebook (Guide to California Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails) and are shown on pre-loaded topographic backgrounds. You’ll see your exact position on your GPS screen at all times. This card is intended to be used along with the books, which include important information, not on the card, including trail overview, trail rating, vehicle recommendation, photos of the trail and more. The card works with most Garmin GPS units and a few other brands.
What is on the data card?
Start of Trail & Points of Interest (POIs)
Each FunTreks data card includes the start of each trail from the corresponding book as a custom Point of Interest. Once the card has been inserted, some receivers will ask to import the POIs from the FunTreks data card. We do not recommend importing the POIs to the receiver due to the limited amount of internal memory in most units.
Tracks / Breadcrumb Trails
Tracks that correspond to the complete trail in the book are included on the topographic maps on the data card. Your unit will also show the waypoints that correspond to the waypoints in the book.
Files in GPX Format
All FunTreks Data Cards include GPS Exchange Format (GPX) files that will work with nearly every GPS unit and computer program that supports GPX files. Some tablet devices may be able to read these files as well.
Other Non-Supported Uses for GPX Format
Consult the user manual for your software/device on how to use GPX data with these applications.
