Click highlighted  to download. Save to named folder. Downloads will open in most mapping or flight planning programs (not xcplanner at present, although your tracklogs will). They can be downloaded into your GPS simply as waypoints and you can then program in the route as required - the lazy way is to download the route from the gpx file. Note that the cylinder sizes are not part of the gpx route.

 

If you wish to view the routes you can do so in a number of ways:

 

http://188.40.246.141/pgtools/waypointplanner/    allows upload/download of waypoints and cylinders. Good companion to xcplanner. Waypoint planner image below.

 

http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/maps/       very simple to load in a gpx route file. View, modify or plan an alternative route. Worth registering to get the 25 thou maps.

 


 

http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map_input?form=googleearth   load in a gpx file to convert and view in GE

 

Slightly quicker to go HERE

 

http://xcplanner.appspot.com/   you can't download a route into, but can modify or plan your own.
