Downloading GPSWaypoints/Routes Data to a Garmin Etrex HCx

Q. Will the GPS data available to download for waypoint/routes etc work with a Garmin Etrex HCx

Graham Whitehouse, Kidderminster


A. Our GPS Waypoints/Data is supplied as a simple text file which you can upload using a format converter - we suggest GPSU though there are others available.

So as long as GPSU supports your GPS Device (and it does support the Garmin Etrex HCx) you will be able to use it. You can always check this out for yourself first using one of the sample routes available via our Regular Newsletter.

For a choice of walks that include downloadable GPS Waypoint Data see Walks with GPS Waypoints and GPS Data

For more general information on GPS and GPS Devices - see Hill Skills > GPS Myths & Truths > GPS - The Myths and Truths - Part 1 and Hill Skills > GPS Myths & Truths > GPS - The Myths and Truths - Part 2

For fellow user Questions and Answers about GPS and GPS Devices - see Q & A - GPS Waypoints

Hope this helps . . .
