I've got a few different track logs I've created and I've been trying to figure out how to combine them into one .gpx file I can load onto a GPS rather than doing each one individually. Am I missing something obvious in MapSource?

Do the DeLorme or Lowrance units do this easier?

Highlight multiple tracks, right click, and select the merge, or is it combine, track logs. I do it quite often.

Think it is "join tracks", works pretty slick. Also just an FYI, the default for mapsource is to save as a .dbg, you need to change that in the drop down to .gpx...

This is timely info. Am planning on doing just that with my daily tracks from my road trip out west. Thanks
