Solution for older GPS: make Named Trails visible with a red line!
On page 4 we discussed the incompatibility of the Dakota (and others like the eTrex 20/30) with Active Routing maps.
One aspect of Active Routing is the highlighting of roads and footpaths with a red color if there's a Named Trail on it. Older units can't manage the special typ definitions that are used by Active Routing.
In post #18 I attached an adapted typ file that made the hidden streetlabels visible. I now created another version of this typ file that will show a red line aside to all roads and footpaths and also show the Named Trail label in red. This typ file is intended for older units and Mapsource but can also be used on new units (Oregon 600 for instance). You'll have both a highlighted road and a red line or if you prefer the red line only you can change your Activity to one that doesn't use Active Routing.
* note that not all Topo Pro maps use highlighted road classes for Active Routing. Topo France Pro for instance uses exactly the same red line as I do here!
* the red streetlabel will be visible in Mapsource and older units (60CSx), my Oregon 600 and 62s show all streetlabels in black, nothing I can do about that.
Topo Belux Pro in Mapsource:

* I will create the same typ files for Topo Nederland Pro as well.
