Vermont roads GPS locations

All,
I've spent some time getting familiar with the search function on this site and Google maps. I've compiled a list of 178 GPS points that may helpful others. They're primarily country roads that have been recommended on this forum, usually by PWT. (Thanks, PWT and everyone else who posted these suggestions!) There are also some "destination" type waypoints, such as Owl's Head, Moss Glen Falls, and towns like Grafton, East Corinth, etc.

A couple notes on the waypoints. I usually didn't pick numbered state highways since I didn't think it made sense to pick a single waypoint as the location of a 100 mile long road. However, obviously you still want to drive Route 100 etc. :) For the roads, I usually picked a point about halfway between it's beginning and end. The way I plan on using this is browsing the list of nearby roads in my GPS while I drive around, and using it to take detours. This is probably best used as a list of suggested nearby detours, in conjuntion with a planned route, rather than for use in creating the route itself. Finally, please use these with a good detailed map like the Jimpaco or Delorme. GPS's can sometimes lead you to funny places.

-----------
To load these to a GPS unit:
You can load these all in one shot to a GPS using the files linked below. To load these to a Garmin as Custom POI's (points of interest), you'll need 3 things. The CSV file linked below with the waypoints, the Garmin POI loader (free), and a usb cable to connect your GPS to your PC.
First download the CSV file. You will then need to load them to your GPS using the Garmin POI loader, which can be downloaded for free at http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/. You'll need to connect your GPS unit to your PC using a USB cable that likely came with your GPS. Once loaded, the locations will show up in the Custom POI (point of interest) menu in your GPS. In my GarminNuvi, the Custom POI's are under the "My Locations" menu. If you already have POI's loaded to your Garmin, you need to back them up onto your pc first. Otherwise they will be erased when you load these new ones. See here for more info on using POI Loader. http://www.gpsinformation.org/penrod/po ... oader.html

For other brand GPS units: I only have experience with my Garmin, but I believe many GPS units can use the .gpx file format, so I converted it to GPX as well. If you need it in another format, please download the csv and/or gpx file, and then use the free tools at http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/ to convert it to the format you need. Unfortunately I won't be able to give any instructions beyond that for non-Garmin brands.

Faxmachine, this is mind boggling how you created 178 GPS points of interest, let alone included an assortment of pictures. Incredible job! My husband said, 'there's a lot of good folks out there who have good hearts!' Thank you! for sharing, caring and for all you contribute to this forum.!

Aspen,
If you're referring to the photos that come up on Google maps, that's sort of "automatic". Those are photos other people have taken and loaded to Google maps. But, you're welcome anyway. :) I hope this helps people find some spots and photos they wouldn't have otherwise. And, I hope nobody gets lost on my account, haha.

This forum is the place for lists! I love it! thanks so much for these! I just got my little handheld gps out of the drawer the other day. Haven't used it for awhile so I will get reacquainted with it.

Well GPS-less PWT tried something wierd with the GPS points. I copied the co-ordinates and used them in Google earth to see what happened. It took me right to the point. For this experiment I used Clay Hill in Johnson. First of all, you will see that the Clay Hill Road starts as Pearl Street off Main Street in Johnson Village. I'm going to have fun with this. See you later. :D

All the links I tried worked great. I admit I didn't go to every single link, but it sure was fun to see the google map and have it put me right there. For those way out there areas, it's perfect to use in conjunction with the Jimapco.

bogey,
If you send me a private message with your email address, I'll email you the files.

I'd appreciate it if someone else could tell me if they are able to download the CSV and GPX file. It works for me, just want to make sure others are able to.

Ha, some of my pics come up here and there (Pudding Hill Rd, Hinton Hill Rd, Burke Mtn Toll Road). I uploaded them to Panaramio via Google Earth. Note: if you click on teh "MORE" button and check on "Photos" you can see even more pics...

Awsome list!

hi Faxmachine,


i have garmin GPS. please let me know where can i find your personal email id to get the GPX or CSV file.

Also you had provided huge list of link of google maps. are those links mentioning the destination location? is it just enough to give my start address to go to such places? i am looking at these links for first time so trying to understand how it works..

Thanks for your help!

Regards,
Ranjana

Hi Rajana,
I've emailed you the files. Those actual points on the roads aren't meaningful, I just picked a midway point on roads that are supposed to be nice. It's meant to help you find nice roads nearby, not necessarily to bring you to one particular spot.

wow! Amazing list. Thanks Faxmachineanthem! Though this is overwhelming for a first-timer like me, would like to select a few and load em up. Thanks again.
