NCC_Trails : Garmin Map of National Capital Canada Trails
« on: August 16, 2010, 18:55:25 »
You will now find the NCC_Trails map at the following link: http://pages.videotron.com/dedale/

I quickly put together this new Web page from my old one; I was unable to attach zip files to this post. If you have suggestions and/or find mistakes; please send them directly to my new email address.

If you have technical questions, please don’t hesitate to post them here. You will find experts on this forum that can answer them more quickly than I will.

P.S. Thanks Kirok, Hidnseek for sending me the emails, I would have missed this new forum completely. Don’t hesitate to make of copy of the files if you are planning to host them here.

Thanks dedale!!

I have attached the 3 zip files to this post.  The instructions were too big however, so please visit dedale's site above if instructions are required.    I will post this link in the Geocaching Websites area.

Thanks so much to both of you for updating it!!

I just got a new laptop so I'm looking to install all the maps on the computer and then update my GPSr aswell (got a new 8 GB microSD thanks to missbug and DnD!)

As I was re-installing all my maps onto my new PC, I noticed that Dedale has released a new revision of the NCC trails maps. They can be downloaded from this link:

If you're looking for instructions / info, check his homepage here:

Thanks Kirok... you are fast

I did not have the chance to test myself if the files had been transferred correctly on the web site and therefore did not posted a note in this forum; I assume you had no problems. Very busy at work and at home, 80 caches only the last year (usually 300-400 per year). I am looking forward for my #2000.

Bluelamb, the trails you sent me last December are in this latest release. Thanks!

To all, don’t hesitate to send me yours trails!

For those you with an interest in updating and maintaining the NCC Trail Maps I have a request:

The current maps of Trail 40 and 42 in the Pine Grove area west of Bank Street and parallel to the golf course are inaccurate. They are based on NCC maps which are wildly out of date. If you're in the area to find Pokaroo's Pine Grove series of caches, and more importantly if you take the unnumbered side trail past my "Who's the Best?" cache http://coord.info/GC1FC6E towards "I'M GUMBY ******!!" http://coord.info/GC3B5XQ and on to a couple of soon to be published caches up in there please consider saving your track log and sending it to Dedale for inclusion in the next update.

Thanks in advance for your help with this project.
