No, it won’t work.  All POI’s will work, or waypoints for the official route and POI’s for the alternates will work.  The latter is what I’ve been putting on cards for people.  POI’s work just like waypoints (almost).  They display a bit differently on the maps – their identifiers are not displayed unless you roll over them with the cursor.  There is no need for you to create the POI’s from waypoints – I already did it and the file is available free of charge on:  www.bearcreeksurvey.com . The file there contains the entire CDT + Alternates in POI format. 



best wishes,

Hi all and especially Jerry Brown,


Trew and I both have Garmin eTrex 30’s that have a 2000 Waypoint Limit.

Is that enough to hold all the New Mexico Official Route and the Alternate

Route Waypoints ?   I don’t know how many there are and not sure how to find out.


I’ve read about converting the Waypoints to POI’s but not sure how to use those.


Right now I’m really only interested in the New Mexico Segment.

I’m planning on hiking the Wyoming Segment later in the summer.
