Please read this entire letter first.
Here’s the data package for the 2019 MN300. We're quite sure that some of you are extremely familiar with GPS operation and file handling. If you’re one of those people and have suggestions, we’re always ready to learn. At the same time we know there are others that own GPS units, but are not that knowledgeable about their use.
The attached 2019 package contains several .pdf and .gpx files. You will not need to use all of them.
D23 Rule Changes
Rule submission deadline is September 15, 2019 for the 2020 season rule book.
If you are a returning rider the first thing you should do is clean up your GPS. Delete tracks and waypoints that you will not use. 2019 MN300 waypoints are all named E9xx or W9xx. If you attended the MN300 in the past, be sure to delete any MN300 waypoints that may be named E4xx & W4xx, E5xx & W5xx, or E6xx & W6xx, etc. If you want to save them, store them on a computer.
If you have a newer GPS that will accept large tracks, the East & West loop tracks, complete (#2 & #6) and MN300 Waypoints (#10) will be your best choice to load on your unit.
If you have an older GPS, it may have a limitation on the number of points in each track. If that is the case, your best choice would be to load the East & West tracks with less than 500 points on your unit (#3 & #7) along with MN300 Waypoints(#10).
If you have a Garmin Nuvi or other street model that will not accept tracks, you can use the Garmin Image File (#9). This will require additional apps such as img2gps or MapSetToolKit; both are available free on the internet. Also load MN300 Waypoints (#10).
If you have a Garmin, import the files into Basecamp or open them with Mapsource. Then transfer them to the GPS unit. If you don’t have Basecamp or Mapsource, you can download them for free at the Garmin web site.
