To update a Harley-Davidson GPS, you can use the Boom! ™ Box GTS Toolbox to transfer new maps. This requires a USB flash drive that is synced with the navigation head unit. Next, you need to select your home region map and follow the instructions on the screen. Then, you can use the Maps to GPX feature on the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system. Then, you simply need to save the GPX file to your PC.
How to create a GPX file from Google Maps
Whether you want to update your GPS on your motorcycle or are looking for a quick route to the nearest motorcycle shop, you’ll need to create a GPX file for your device. There are many ways to do this. One of the easiest ways is to use Google Maps. After logging into your account, you can copy the link to your desired route and paste it into Maps.
Next, download Google’s free Ride Planner to find the route you want to take. You can choose from several formats, but GPX will be your best bet. If you’re looking for off-road maps, Jack recommends GPSFileDepot. These sites can also help you export the GPX file from Google Maps. These files can be easily imported into Harley Davidson GPS devices.
Another option is to use a web map. Using a map service, you can download and install the latest version of Google Maps, then import the GPX file into the motorcycle’s GPS. To make sure that the GPX file you import is compatible with your Harley Davidson GPS, you should install the latest Google Maps version. Alternatively, you can download and use another free Harley Davidson GPS.
GPX files are the standard for navigation systems, but some older models cannot handle them. GPX 1.0 and GPX 1.1 files are both interchangeable. While GPX1.1 can work with all new GPS devices, older versions of these files cannot be read. Fortunately, the same procedure is the same for updating Harley Davidson GPS. This article will guide you through the process step-by-step.
