Hah! But it IS a nav tool! Last summer, I was lost on (actually OFF) the JMT southbound somewhere south of Devils Postpile. We had seen and followed several very old JMT signs near Crater Meadow.

I realized we were on the wrong trail, but not sure where.

...so, I pulled out my cell phone (Mammoth Mtn was in view), and called my son in MI. He looked up my SPOT location, and told me what trail I was on. grin

Joseph:

We don't see the code directly, but believe me, it shows in the comprehensive functionality of Gmap4. In fact, without Gmap4, I might have just bundled my new SPOT back up and returned it. With it, I can provide my trackers with a pretty easy way to generate at least a daily update to MyTopo maps. Can't tell you how much I appreciate that.

Just to make sure I understand and i have not read all the posts. You want to see more than 100 tracks on one page? is that right?

Did you select to see 100 tracks, then use select all check the 100 boxes?

repeat the same on the next page and the next page and the next, etc?

Then, Show on Map. I believe this should show all your tracks for the last 30 days of tracking on one map.

It would be nice to be able to select a range of dates for viewing rather than the "100 per page" currently available.

I think you can accomplish the same thing by setting up several different profiles, and then keep different dates or sets of points in different profiles. Have to experiment to confirm that
