GPX Files & Setup

Your GPS should be configured as follows:

POSITION FORMAT: BRITISH GRID/ BRITISH NATIONAL GRID

MAP DATUM: ORD SRVY GB

Your GPS will report your position with a high degree of accuracy. For simplicity we shorten this to a 6 digit reference in most instances. Please ensure that you understand the BRITISH GRID system on your paper maps. BRITISH GRID uses a combination of letters and numbers to signify your position.

Example: CP1 (Hebden Hey) is located at SD 979 291 in a 6 digit grid reference.

Note for all devices: It is advisable to download and install the individual files on your device instead of the complete route file. This is due to waypoint limits on some devices. If you wish to have a single file, you can reduce the waypoints in the files using software such as Garmin Basecamp. You should test the files prior to the race to ensure they are working correctly.
