problems downloading routes from mac to garmin 800

Postby skygirl1979 » Wed Aug 15, 2012 21:12 pm

I can't seem to download routes from bikely to my garmin 800. Once I've downloaded either the .GPX or .KML files, i get a message on screen that says "there is no default application specified to open the document WMB120-Tweed-Valley-Intermediate-Red-Ride.gpx" when i try to open it to transfer it to the garmin. Any ideas?

Why do you need to open it?
Just place it in the new files folder on the garmin, or the micro sd card if you have one fitted.
By the way a gpx file is really only a plain text file/xml file.

If you want to open the file download basecamp from garmin, this allows viewing creation and manipulation of gpx files.
