Quick Newbie Q for you folks!
I'm loving my Active 10, and have started to use it for geocaching now :-)
At the week-end I was walking a small section of the Cotswold Way, with my chums and their 3 year old - progress was sloooowww...
After I got back I wondered if it's possible to pre-load a larger section of the Cotswold Way, or some other way-marked route like the Gustav Holst Way.
I know its probably a dumb question but is there anywhere you can just download a route like the Costwold Way in a single file and then simply transfer it to my Active 10. Or do I have to do the whole thing 'manually' by creating a route on a planning site, like SatMap's own Expedition, and then save it as a so-and-so file - I don't know the jargon.

There are many websites dedicated to outdoor pursuits which allow members to upload/download routes. Do a web search for the name of the route/walk you want together with your preferred format (such as .gpx or .map) and import it into the SatMap SD card using a card reader.

Job Done.
