Rally green lane routes, maps and .GPX files
« on: June 23, 2022, 10:17:52 AM »

Our rally organisers have been busy and researched some good green lane routes around the Rally site venue.
(These are large files, so they may take time to download.)

Rally Green Lane Instructions


Rally Routes Planner

Green Lanes gpx file

BANES E 1 map

BANES E 2 map

BANES E 3 map

BANES W 1 map

BANES W 2 map

BANES W 3 map

(Note: BANES = Bath and North East Somerset)

BANES E route gpx file

BANES W route gpx file


Shepton Mallet 1 map

Shepton Mallet 2 map

Shepton Mallet 3 map

Shepton Mallet loop gpx file

*********************************************************************************************************

Some have reported problems downloading these .gpx files into the OS Maps app.

Here are the re-worked files which hopefully should upload (they did for me).


1) LR_Rally_BANES_E_220504.gpx file


2) LR_Rally_BANES_W_220506(1).gpx file


3) Shelton_Mallett.gpx file








Please direct any questions to the Rally organisers.

Thanks all.

Is anyone else having trouble importing the GPX Files into OS Maps?

I was involved with producing them, and have checked by downloading the files from this website. They worked for me.

Hi Tim,

OK. I'll try again later.

OS Maps doesn't seem to like 3 out of the 4 files for me.

Could well be their website. Will report back.

 :cheers

If it's the 'Green Lanes' gpx, it could be because there are a lot of routes on it (78). Suggest you ignore that one and concentrate on the other three - which give the three routes for the rally.

Hi Tim,

I've tried again using OS Maps.

I can still only load one of the files. It doesn't like the others.

Do you have an OS Account? Can you check?

No I don't have an OS account - I tried it for a while - couldn't get it to work to my satisfaction!

It works on Memory Map (I don't have that one) and Garmin Base Camp (which I do have).

Which one works for you - I'll do some investigating.

OK. Maybe an OS app problem then.

That's the only account I have/use.

If it works on other platforms that is reassuring.  👌

Did you try changing the file name?

I managed to get the LR Rally BANES E 220504 .gpx file into my OS app.

The other .gpx files wouldn't up load.

What should the filenames be changed to ?
Something shorter and simpler would be good ???

I cannot replicate the problem, but according to Google, there have been some problems with the OS app.

Those dashes might be the problem - I don't know what criteria OS needs for file naming - if that is the problem.

All the files open OK for me - I have downloaded the files from the club forum.

I can convert them (using gpsbabel) to another format? Any requests for file extension - I'll send them to Alan or James direct.

Exactly the same as me Alan.

... although the OS error message I'm getting implies they are having uploading problems at their end ???

Will keep trying over the next few days.
