Works on apple if you save the file to a computer ; email it to yourself. Then download GPX Viewer or similar and open the emailed file in there. 

Great success. Still just banking on being J's best mate and then it's impossible to be lost. Right?

It's also miserable siting wide open on a China four stroke for any length of time....I'll definitely be rocking air plugs on the ride as well haha. Ears were ringing after a few hours riding yesterday

Headphones + loud music almost drowns out that terrible Chinese sound

Hey Team, JB gave me a rough outline of the track, i converted it to a route and then re converted back to a track so it hugs the roads we will be going on exactly. Ill have a garmin 64s on my bike displaying this incase people get lost but if anyone else has some form of garmin GPS and wants to know where we are going each day download the GPX file from my dropbox in the link below and just chuck it in ghee (to your device).

My man! Thats cool, I'm still a little hopeless on GPS stuff. Your route is doing something a little strange around Tuai, but is minor and pretty self explanatory. Nice

is this one not very accurate J5? ive loaded that one into my google offline maps ?

That one is pretty well correct, except for a stretch between Matahina Dam and Kopuriki, that google wouldn't let me route over no matter what I tried. I'll aim for a regrouping at this point though.

You can also download GPX viewers that slam that shit into google maps if you have a mobile  phone - I know this works on android, unsure about apples. /Better living

Assuming 2degrees has reception at the J-5 ranch, can someone put this on my phone the night before/before we leave please?  I'm sure to get lost, and am a cabbage with technology

Also; a good watch for those who haven't come. This is the first year. We had a whopping 14 riders. 

Different route in 2019 for some of it but it was still loose.

Yeah true. Duhhh Callum. Was more wondering about any sneaky slippery slides along the way that it's worth stopping for. 

Got my short shorts ready.
