Hello all, I am new here but looking for some info on .gpx files. I live in British Columbia Canada
and one of our fishing
challenges now are Rockfish Conservation areas.
Area 12 to 20, 28 and 29 | Rockfish Conservation Areas | Pacific Region | Fisheries and Oceans Canada
These are area's where you are not allowed to use a hook for fishing
. If you visit the link above and go to area 12 you can see the challenge of knowing where you are allowed to go and where not.
So, I have am attempting to solve this dilemma using technology. I have been making basically circle routes in Open CPN
that encompass each area. I can then take the .gpx file and upload to my Lowarance HDS7. Works alright, but I am trying to get these route/boundary lines show up in colour on my HDS7. There's the challenge. What I read about .gpx is that the file format will not convey colour?? Is this true? Is there another way? I have tried converting .kml files from Google earth
to .usr files that my HDS7 uses with GPS
Babel. Unfortunately it strips info as well.
Any Idea's? Ideally if I could use Open CPN
to make the .gpx and take it to my HDS7 that would save a bunch of steps.
Thanks in advance for any idea's
